About Us

At Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, our focus is on addressing total patient care by guiding our patients through the process of diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and re-injury prevention. Patients have access to a wide range of expertise and services, including general orthopedic medicine, total joint replacement, sports medicine, podiatry services, reconstructive surgery of the hands and joints, and arthroscopy. Our orthopedic surgery team ensures that each patient is given sufficient time and attention to address and treat his or her unique medical needs.


From diagnosis to repair and rehabilitation, to follow-up and beyond, our orthopedic specialists are dedicated to improving and restoring musculoskeletal function - helping patients reach their personal wellness goals. Our fully trained and experienced surgeons provide the complete spectrum of musculoskeletal care, including the following surgical specialties:

  • Arthroscopic Surgery - Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that offers orthopedic surgeons the ability to access, navigate, and operate on a given joint through very small incisions.
  • Conditions treated:
    • Activity-related joint pain
    • Tendon and cartilage injury in the hip, knee and shoulder
    • Chondromalacia
    • Synovitie
  • Concussion - A concussion is a serious type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head- or even a blow to the body that causes the head to jerk back and forth- that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can occur in any sport or recreational activity and usually do not involve a loss of consciousness.
  • Foot & Ankle Repair - The foot is an intricate structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and tendons, which all hold the structure together allowing it to move in a variety of ways. We have a multidisciplinary, highly trained team of orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists to provide comprehensive medical and surgical care of foot and ankle disorders.

  • Hand & Upper Extremity - In order to perform daily activities such as getting dressed, typing or lifting objects, our hands require sensation and movement. These activities involve a delicate balance of nerve, vessel, tendon, bone and joint function. We are dedicated to restoring the function of hands damaged by injury or disease through surgical and non-surgical treatments.

The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint. We provide a joint replacement education class for patients prior to surgery. To learn more, click here.

The more porous your bones become, the more likely they are to break. Orthopedic surgeons treat fractures all the time, but did you know that certain fractures can be a sign of a more serious underlying problem? If you are over the age of 50 and experience one of the following types of fractures, you should be screened for osteoporosis: Wrist, Spine and Hip.
  • Pediatric Orthopedics - Many children participate in athletics and other physical activities that could lead to injury. Young athletes can injure their muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones in various parts of the body.

Tests and Diagnosis

At Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, we use sophisticated screening and diagnostic technologies that provide a precise and accurate diagnosis of musculoskeletal problems. Our diagnostic tests include:

  • X-ray - A test that uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images on film of internal tissues, bones and organs.
  • Ultrasound - A noninvasive diagnostic procedure that uses ultrasonic sound waves to access soft tissue structures such as muscles, blood vessels and organs.
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) - A diagnostic procedure that use a combination of a large magnet, radiofrequencies and a computer to produce detailed images of organs, bones, joints and soft tissues within the body.
  • CT scan (computed tomography) - A noninvasive diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to access bones, soft tissues and joints for damage, lesions, fractures, or other abnormalities, particularly when another type of examination, such as X-ray or physical examination are not conclusive.
