Programs are one of the cornerstones of Summit Medical Group’s continuum of care. We understand that some conditions like arthritis, fractures, back pain and others are complex enough that patients benefit the most when multiple specialties work together. That’s why we’ve created our programs. Programs are a formal embodiment of one of Summit Medical Group’s core values: working together for the good of the patient.
A Team Approach
When you’re involved in one of our programs, you won’t just see your orthopedics specialist. You’ll have access to the experts you need, whether they’re in acupuncture, endocrinology, rheumatology, urgent care or other departments. And, you’ll never have to worry about your doctors not communicating with each other, thanks to Summit Medical Group’s secure electronic medical record system. See below for a list of our programs and why one might be right for you.
Arthritis is a term for more than 100 diseases that cause joint pain. Treatment of arthritis at Summit Medical Group can involve endocrinologists, nutritionists, physical therapists and more, in addition to nearly any of our orthopedics specialties.
Fractures are painful and can be difficult to treat. Our orthopedics department works with urgent care, hand therapy, physical therapy and more in order to put you on the road to recovery.
Integrative Neck & Back Pain
Back and neck pain are some of the most common conditions in the U.S., and are also some of the most costly and debilitating. Many back and neck issues have unknown causes, making them especially difficult to treat. That’s why you need a team of physicians working on your back and neck.
Osteoporosis is a common issue for people over age 65, especially women. It’s also responsible for a significant number of falls and fractures. That’s why we take a multidisciplinary approach to treating osteoporosis at Summit Medical Group.
Sports Center of Excellence
Athletes put their bodies through stresses that most other people don’t have to deal with, and they have special considerations when they get injured. Summit Medical Group works across departments throughout the network to give athletes the care they need and help them get back to peak performance.
Sprains & Strains
Surgically repairing a sprain (damage to a ligament) or a strain (damage to a muscle or tendon) is just the beginning. Our orthopedics specialists work with physical therapists, physiatrists, massage therapists, urgent care physicians and more in order to speed your recovery and help prevent future injuries.
