Comprehensive orthopaedic care and sports medicine for disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system.

ECMC’s Center for Orthopaedic Care offers comprehensive orthopaedic care to manage disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal (muscle and bone) system.

Our orthopaedics and sports medicine specialists excel in treating patients in a range of circumstances, from planned orthopaedic work to treatment of major trauma, customizing patient plans depending on what is best for each individual situation.

Each of our orthopaedics experts specializes in a specific area, so whether you need treatment for your hand, foot, ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, hip, or spine, you’ll receive the very best care. In addition, we have a dedicated, specialized nursing staff just for the orthopaedics department to support the specialists and surgeons who are on-site and on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To bring the best possible care to our patients, we offer two specialized facilities to deal with your orthopaedic issues.
