General orthopedics is a specialty dealing with the musculoskeletal system—the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and nerves. A 2016 study estimated that more than 126 million Americans—one out of every two adults—are affected by a musculoskeletal disorder. These conditions cost Americans approximately $213 billion per year.

General orthopedics is the foundation of all advanced and specialized training. Our surgeons who practice general orthopedists have made the commitment to stay up-to-date with the latest research and most innovative treatments for conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

Our general orthopedists are highly trained to deliver personalized care tailored to the particular injury and condition of the patient. We offer both surgical and nonsurgical treatments based on your needs, goals and lifestyle. Our surgeons will use a multidisciplinary approach in the evaluation and management of your condition. We are able to leverage Summit Health’s other outstanding departments to get you exactly the care you need, no matter what injuries or chronic conditions you have.
