WELCOME TO ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY of MACOMB

Orthopedic Surgery of Macomb is impassioned about improving your quality of life by providing the latest advances for the care of all your orthopedic concerns. The field of orthopedics involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system for people of all ages. Advances in orthopedics have made it possible for people with injury or diseases of the joints to live virtually pain free. Our goal is to get you back to enjoying the lifestyle you desire.

Your body's musculoskeletal system is very complex and includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves which work in unison to allow you to move and be active. When any link in the system dysfunctions or is injured it can cause pain and immobility. Our philosophy is treat the body as a whole and to diagnose and treat the core dysfunction with a individualized treatment plan. We care for patients of all ages, to young athletes requiring arthroscopic surgery to people with arthritis.
