University Orthopedics initiated OrthoDirect to increase patient access to expert orthopedic care when you need it most. This service adds to our regional care of orthopedic and rehabilitation care. With a mission to provide the highest quality orthopedic care integrated with world-class education and research, University Orthopedics includes more than 40 board-certified, fellowship trained musculoskeletal and sports medicine physicians. These specialists are faculty members of the Department of Orthopaedics at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University who teach medical students, orthopedic residents, and fellowship subspecialty surgeons. University Orthopedics leads the way with Basic and Clinical orthopedic research on the latest advances in orthopedic surgery and injury prevention.

OrthoDirect at University Orthopedics offers same-day and next-day appointments, and is staffed by orthopedic- and sports medicine-trained clinicians. On-site x-ray is available to expedite injury assessment. Our physicians are fellowship-trained, board-certified and hold certificates of added qualification in sports medicine. Our providers specialize in both operative and non-operative treatments. Our surgeons specialize in the arthroscopic repair of sports-related injuries, complex shoulder and knee reconstruction, shoulder instability and advanced cartilage procedures. Our physicians understand the impact an injury may have on the patient and the importance of prompt diagnosis and treatment.
