At Lincoln Orthopaedic Center, we provide comprehensive orthopaedic healthcare, offering a wide variety of orthopaedic services including sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery, total joint replacement, hand surgery and spinal surgery.
LOC physicians are highly skilled in all areas of orthopaedic medicine. Our expertise includes the medical management of injuries and disease of the musculoskeletal system through physical and rehabilitative methods, or through surgical intervention. LOC orthopaedic surgeons often serve as consultants to physicians of other disciplines in order to assure the highest quality of care for our patients.
LOC physicians are board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. They have completed extensive orthopaedic and sub-specialty orthopaedic training.
In addition, on-staff physician assistants and nurse practitioners provide a wide range of orthopaedic services. Mid level providers are involved in many aspects of patient care, including performing medical examinations, diagnosing diseases and injuries and providing treatment, prescribing medications under the supervision of LOC physicians and assisting with surgical procedures.
All Lincoln Orthopaedic Center physician assistants and nurse practitioners have completed intensive training and education in an accredited program, and are certified in their areas of expertise.
