Welcome to WMed's Orthopaedics Clinic
WMed Orthopaedic Surgery Clinic is a residency training program that offers you subspecialty-trained surgeons who can take care of your orthopaedic problems. Our team of board-certified surgeons and residents are committed to delivering personalized, state-of-the-art services and quality care to every patient. Each patient is treated as an individual and our patient evaluations and treatment are tailored to address your needs and concerns. We take the right amount of time to adequately evaluate each patient's conditions and problems.
As an orthopaedic care center, our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries of the bones, muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments in adults and children. In addition, we are also trained in complex orthopaedic procedures that may require subspecialty skills, including treatment of children's orthopaedic disorders, sports medicine, complex shoulder and elbow problems, joint replacements, and fracture care.
Our residents have graduated at the top of their medical school class and help to provide the specialized care for each patient while training to become orthopaedic surgeons. Resident physicians participate in a comprehensive five-year training program under the supervision of our WMed faculty and our superb community of orthopaedic surgeons in Kalamazoo. We also teach WMed and Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine medical students and Western Michigan University physician assistant students in our orthopaedic program.
We make every effort to render compassionate and timely care to reduce patient stress and anxiety. Through teaching we are constantly incorporating new ideas and novel technology into our day-to-day practice to provide you the best care possible. We provide 24-hour coverage at both local hospitals, Borgess Medical Center and Bronson Methodist Hospital, with a physician on-call at all times.
