Best Orthopedic Care in Catawba Valley

EmergeOrtho—Foothills is thrilled to share that we have been awarded Best Orthopedic Care in Catawba Valley by the Hickory Daily Record.

What makes this honor so special to the EmergeOrtho team is that it comes from our patients. The Daily Record’s awards go to businesses voted on by people in the region. Residents in the area have come to trust and depend on our orthopedic specialists, who provide outstanding care for a range of bone and soft tissue conditions and injuries.

Orthopedic Speciality Care in the Foothills

EmergeOrtho—Foothills offers 10 regional orthopedics clinics with comprehensive care as well as supportive services. Our specialists treat a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions caused by sports, arthritis, repetitive motion, and more.

Orthopedic surgeons at all of our locations evaluate patients, provide a comprehensive diagnosis, and craft individualized treatment plans that consider the patient’s needs, limitations, and preferences.

In addition to our orthopedic doctors, our Foothills Region locations are staffed by physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitation specialists, and experts in interventional pain management.

Seven of the Foothills locations also offer orthopedic urgent care. These clinics provide day, evening, and weekend hours for those unexpected injuries that are not severe enough for a visit to the emergency room. You can see the hours of operation for each location here.

If you have questions or are ready to meet with an orthopedic specialist, give us a call at (828) 672-1299 or request an appointment at any EmergeOrtho—Foothills office.
