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.
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.

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.
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 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.
The foot and ankle in the human body consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, nerves and soft tissue.

Use of Colloidal Oatmeal Soap Can Reduce Symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis Topical colloidal oatmeal (CO) can reduce local inflammation, itching, and a number of other indications, at low cost and with minimal side effects.
Insight Research Institute conducted a study to test whether the addition of CO to cold-processed vegetable oil soap could significantly clear overt symptoms of atopic eczema within two weeks of use. Our results showed soothing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-pruritic effects suggesting the efficacy of using this soap as a treatment for atopic dermatitis.

Healthcare Associated Infections
Improved control and reduction of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are perpetual concerns in hospitals and other healthcare settings, including non-hospital residential facilities such as nursing homes and correctional facilities.
A recent review of epidemiological studies on the incidence of MRSA infections has indicated that taken as a whole, there may be no definitive evidence that their incidence is declining significantly. Indeed, contradictions between source studies suggest the need for a comprehensive tracking system, while underscoring the motivation to perform such studies, i.e., nosocomial infections, including MRSA, Clostridium difficile, and others, undermine the therapeutic mission of healthcare facilities. The advent of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains illustrates pathogens’ persistence in the face of powerful, highly specific chemical agents.
At Insight Research Institute, we are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of a device that produces oxygen-free radicals on sample slides containing MRSA in hospital patient rooms. Our preliminary results are promising and showing a reduction in some types of infections.
