What is Orthopedics?

According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal system. This complex system, which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, allows you to move, work and be active. 

Should I make an appointment?

If you are suffering from any type of pain that affects your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, or back you should consider seeing our Orthopedic department. You can call and make an appointment yourself, or you can discuss with your primary care provider a referral to see Dr. William Ralston, Dr. Rankin or Jake Davis, PA-C.
