About Orthopedics at Paris Community Hospital

Orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of problems and injuries of the bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments. It also includes the surgical and non-surgical treatment of arthritis.

Your Orthopedic Appointment

At your orthopedic appointment, you will be thoroughly and professionally evaluated by an orthopedic specialist. A treatment plan is agreed upon between you and the doctor. The orthopedic specialist works closely with your physical therapist when physical therapy is needed.

Surgery Options

While some conditions may require surgery, the goal is to avoid surgery whenever possible.

Physician Referral

A healthcare provider’s referral is accepted, but is not necessary to see our orthopedic specialist.
