Perhaps you have been referred to an orthopedic specialist for a musculoskeletal injury, disorder, or condition. Or, maybe you are simply curious about the scope of what an orthopedic physician can do. Many people are surprised and pleased to discover the diverse services and orthopedic conditions a specialty orthopedic practice can offer.
EmergeOrtho is your comprehensive solution for your orthopedic needs. Many of our physicians are board-certified with fellowship training in subspecialty areas of orthopedics. Both board certification and fellowship training require rigorous training and academic standards. In fact, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons complete a minimum of an additional 12 months of training focused on their chosen subspecialty area. This extensive background and training are what enable EmergeOrtho physicians to offer subspecialty services in a number of areas.
