Why we do:
Each of our physicians chose a different path that led them through years of schooling because of a desire to help individuals find a solution to an issue. The physicians and mid-level providers at APEX, formerly Carondelet Orthopaedic Surgeons, work cooperatively with each other to provide sub-specialty care more efficiently and effectively. We work to give back to the community by giving our time, talent and resources to be a positive change for good. We also choose to develop a healthy workplace environment to provide better healthcare to our patients.
WHat WE DO:
We treat individuals of all ages for their orthopedic and sports medicine needs with a caring, patient-centered mindset. Whether from the aging process, overuse or an accident our goal is to provide a complete and comprehensive range of specialists for your care. We also work to coordinate care both internally and externally with our partner providers, as well as your family, in order to provide the most affordable and highest quality of services available to you.
