Our specialists use advanced surgical instrumentation to correct the injury, enables the patient to go home the same day to the comfort of their home. Every medical specialty has become “sub-specialized” with super specialists that have the most advanced expertise in their particular niche.
University Orthopedics directs many clinical research efforts intended to innovate new orthopedic surgery techniques; new surgical implant devices that improve the success of various procedures; and new ways to prevent orthopedic injury.
University Orthopedics believe that just as they benefited from the educational training they received early on in their careers, they should return the expertise they gain through private practice by educating those coming out of medical schools who in turn take their expertise into the community.
Because of this super specialization in orthopedics, University Orthopedics is organized into CLINICAL CARE CENTERS which provides patients across Rhode Island — Providence County, Kent County, Washington County, Bristol County and Newport County — the most specialized care related to their orthopedic injury or pain symptom.
Spine Center Network
The Center for Spine Health at University Orthopedics is the only spine center in the State of Rhode Island to be included in a national listing of spine centers of excellence by SpineCenterNetwork.com. To be included, a spine center must meet various credentialing criteria, including: a multi-disciplinary team of non-surgical spine specialists working with fellowship-trained spine surgeons and spine therapists; a non-surgical emphasis and philosophy of care; advanced capabilities in minimally invasive spine surgery and artificial disc replacement for motion preservation; and an investment in patient education. This includes providing a symptom guide and a Home Remedy Book as a community service for back and neck pain sufferers across Rhode Island. The internal team of physical medicine and pain management specialists provide spinal injections and other non-surgical treatment options for patients of the spine center.Learn More
