Community Bone and Joint offers two board-certified orthopedic surgeons, a doctor of podiatric medicine, a certified physician assistant, and a nurse practitioner who diagnose and treat conditions of the bones, joints and muscles.
Whether you’re experiencing pain in your elbows, wrists, knees, shoulders, hips, feet or ankles, we can diagnose and treat your joint condition. Our team of professionals has years of experience and are exceptionally skilled in a range of general and specialized orthopedic medicine.
