Erlanger Orthopaedic Institute Hosts Foot And Ankle, Trauma Open House

Friday, July 13, 2018
Erlanger Orthopaedic Institute will host an open house for its Foot and Ankle, and Trauma programs at the newly remodeled location in the Erlanger Medical Mall next Tuesday.
 
The newly renovated offices keep the specialty teams together for comprehensive orthopaedic care, while keeping other subspecialty providers near. Multiple specialty procedures will be able to be performed in-office, including imaging. The two clinics share a large waiting room.
 
"Some of the most common orthopaedic conditions affect the foot and ankle.
Erlanger’s Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle program offers a range of advanced solutions including arthroscopic procedures and total ankle replacement, in addition to conservative care. The team works to develop an individualized treatment plan specifically designed for each patient. Erlanger offers the only program with two foot and ankle fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons. 
 
"Erlanger’s Orthopaedic Trauma program provides comprehensive care at the region’s only Level I Trauma Center. The four fellowship-trained surgeons provide the highest level of care for patients who sustain trauma injuries," officials said.
 
“We are excited to showcase our newly remodeled space focused on keeping our dedicated orthopaedic care teams together,” said Allen Bible, DPT, FACHE, AVP of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. “Our care teams specialize and focus on their individual areas in an effort to provide the best possible care to our patients. These specialized orthopaedic surgeons are highly trained in their specific field resulting in better outcomes and treatment plans.”
 
The event will take place from 4-6 p.m. in suite C-225 at the Erlanger Medical Mall. For more information about the Erlanger Orthopaedic Institute or to make an appointment, call 778-6784.
