SPORTS MEDICINE

Our goal is to not just get our patients feeling better, but to help each individual achieve the highest possible level of post-treatment function so they can get back to playing hard.

ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

We operate with small-town care and big city expertise.
At Traverse City Orthopedics, we take pride in our expertise and customer care. Our patients see the physician that treated them. We are involved and take pride in our community, and that is reflected in the way we treat our patients. From visiting with a patient and his family at Peegeo’s about the patients successful recovery and his upcoming football season, to providing physician accessibility in our office, we truly care for our patients.

From the weekend warrior, to the serious athlete, we provide expert care to each patient individually, to ensure they can continue to do what they love comfortably and safely.

common treatment areas

SHOULDER

These three bones make up a “ball-and-socket” joint that is held in place by muscles, ligaments and tendons. The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body, allowing for a wide range of motion, but because of that, it is a common source of injury and instability.

ELBOW

The elbow is the hinge-joint of the arm where the humerus (upper arm bone) and the radius and ulna (forearm bones) are connected.

HAND

Hand surgery is a specialized type of procedure that may be performed for both medical and cosmetic purposes to treat a wide variety of ailments, injuries and imperfections that cause pain or affect appearance.

KNEE

The strongest and largest joint in the human body, the knee allows the leg to bend and straighten, while at the same time carrying almost all of the weight of an individual when they are standing, walking or running.

FOOT & ANKLE

Your feet and ankles are the most used and abused parts of your body. But you don’t have to be stopped by injuries, malformations, or other debilitating ailments.

COVID - 19An update from our office
Dear Traverse City Orthopedic patients,

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are taking necessary precautions to do our part to prevent the spread of this illness by limiting our patient appointments over the next several weeks. If you currently have an appointment scheduled that is not of urgent nature, you will be contacted by our office staff.

We are mandated to perform pre-screening of any patient that presents to our office & you may be asked to reschedule based on the results.

To limit the number of people in our office at one time, we ask that anyone coming with you to your appointment remain in the vehicle unless you need assistance getting inside. We may also request that you complete your paperwork in your vehicle to keep with social distancing standards.

Furthermore, we are unable to board elective surgical cases until further notice is given to us by our local hospital & outpatient facilities.

We will be diligent in doing our part to abide by CDC guidelines and just want to remind everyone that hand washing, personal hygiene & social distancing are the best defense right now as we continue to learn more.

We will be limiting staff but will have systems in place to have your questions answered regarding your care.

Thank you for your understanding.
