General orthopedics is a specialty dealing with the musculoskeletal system—the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and nerves. A 2016 study estimated that more than 126 million Americans—one out of every two adults—are affected by a musculoskeletal disorder. These conditions cost Americans approximately $213 billion per year.
General orthopedics is the foundation of all advanced and specialized training. Our surgeons who practice general orthopedists have made the commitment to stay up-to-date with the latest research and most innovative treatments for conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
Our general orthopedists are highly trained to deliver personalized care tailored to the particular injury and condition of the patient. We offer both surgical and nonsurgical treatments based on your needs, goals and lifestyle. Our surgeons will use a multidisciplinary approach in the evaluation and management of your condition. We are able to leverage Summit Medical Group’s other outstanding departments to get you exactly the care you need, no matter what injuries or chronic conditions you have.
If you’re ready to improve your quality of life and take the next step in treating your musculoskeletal conditions, schedule an appointment with one of our general orthopedists today.
I’m an active 56 year old in great shape. I tore my supraspinatus tendon completely and thought my right arm would never be “right.” Dr. Garberina successfully repaired my shoulder, even after I waited 5 months to do the repair. Dr. Garberina is a talented surgeon and he gave me my right arm back! I can’t recommend him (and his team) highly enough.

The care I received was stellar! I could not have had a better doctor and staff. Everyone was kind, caring and compassionate. What I found especially nice is the doctor. He called my husband after the operation to let him know I was ok. I felt very cared for and I tell everyone that if they need an orthopedist, he’s the one!
