Orthopedic Specialists

At Insight Orthopedic Specialists, we follow our motto of Patient Care Second to None. No matter your age or orthopedic issue, our highly-trained providers and specialists will provide a plan of care and help you get you back doing the things you love.

Integrated and Conservative Approach to Orthopedic Care

Our orthopedic process is a conservative yet comprehensive and collaborative approach to your care. This includes the use of digital x-ray or MRI to fully diagnose your condition and prescribe therapy prior to any need for surgery. Our providers will guide you through the process to help you decide whether surgery is the most effective option.

Being that Insight Orthopedic Specialists is part of the Insight multi-specialty system, we have specialties in pain management, neurosurgery, therapy, and chiropractic to provide a comprehensive and efficient approach to care when dealing with your condition. All of our offices are fully integrated, allowing us to share your health record seamlessly.

Explore our core areas of specialization below and learn about your condition and types of procedures involved in our education library.

Hand Care

A quarter of your body’s bones are found in your hands and wrists. Our orthopedic team can identify and treat injuries and general discomfort in your hands and wrists.

Arm & Elbow Care

Common injuries to the arm and elbow can include fractures, sprains, tendon tears, and dislocation. The elbow is both a ball and socket joint and a hinge joint allowing two separate motions: bending and rotating.

Shoulder Care

Shoulder injuries are frequently caused by athletic activities, but injuries can also occur during everyday tasks. Our team can help restore proper function in your shoulder and reduce associated pain.

Foot & Ankle Care

The foot and ankle in the human body consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, nerves and soft tissue. Together this complex system provides stability, balance, movement and propulsion. Our team is proud to offer the full spectrum of foot and ankle care options including treatment for plantar fasciitis, diabetic foot pain, a complex foot trauma, hammer toe, and more.

The Insight Orthopedic Specialists Team

Our team consists of providers who are board-certified and fellowship-trained in conditions relating to the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, foot and ankle, as well as an in-house occupational therapist.
