Orthopaedic Services

With Dr. Strasburger’s leadership and more than 20 years of combined expertise, our team maintains a holistic approach to care for the body as a complete system, focusing on muscle, bone, joint and tendon injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, knee, hip, foot, and ankle.


Starting with the most conservative methods to restore mobility and healing, our comprehensive offerings consist of everything from complex surgeries, such as the already mentioned complete knee replacement, to non-surgical, minimally invasive solutions, sports medicine treatments and other therapeutic options.

However, if surgery is in your future, rest assured knowing our team uses leading edge technological options, aiding in faster healing and resulting in less pain during recovery. As mentioned, one of these advanced options is the CORI Robotics Assisted Surgical System, which is a system that can be used for total and partial knee replacement. When a highly-skilled surgeon uses this system, patients can rest assured they're getting the ultimate knee replacement experience.

In addition to using robotics assisted surgical technology, our team offers iovera°, a cryotherapy approach to pain management that targets the nerves responsible for sending pain signals to the brain. We also offer regenerative platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help promote faster wound healing and effective pain relief.
