Reid Orthopedics offers a comprehensive line of exceptional orthopedic treatments in addition to providing you with a wide range of patient-centered services that can make a difference in your life.

Our areas of expertise include:

Shoulder & Elbow

The shoulder and elbow are two of the most complex joints in the human body. Their function is key to many sporting activities as well as many day-to-day activities. Injuries affecting one or both of these joints are common and can drastically affect quality of life. The care providers at Reid Orthopedics are dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive care for patients suffering from a wide range of shoulder and elbow injuries. They are expertly trained in shoulder and elbow surgery and continue to be leaders in the treatment of tendon, bone, joint and nerve disorders of the shoulder and elbow. They provide the most up-to-date treatment for patients, including arthroscopic and reconstructive techniques.

Frequently treated problems:

Foot & Ankle

Foot and ankle pain is a common disorder. Almost 80 percent of the population will experience foot pain in their lives. At Reid Orthopedics, we believe that no one should have to live with pain in their feet. We are trained and equipped to diagnose and treat all problems involving the foot and ankle. We treat people of all ages for problems such as calluses and bunions, as well as serious injuries and disorders. Many foot and ankle problems can be remedied with conservative care, including correctional orthotic devices. For patients with conditions that fail to respond to conservative care, surgical intervention may be necessary. The board-certified orthopedic surgeons at Reid Orthopedics are fellowship-trained in foot and ankle surgery. Their expertise and experience will help you you through every step of your treatment, whether it is orthotic therapy or corrective surgery.

Frequently treated problems:

  • Ankle instability
  • Bunions
  • Calluses
  • Diabetic symptoms
  • Flat foot
  • Foot tingling
  • Fractures and trauma
  • Hammer toes
  • Heel pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Structural deformities
  • Tendon injuries

Hand & Wrist

The human hand is very complex and delicate in structure. Hand surgery requires a totally different surgical approach whether treating fractures, arthritis or deformities. Hand surgery traditionally includes treatment of the entire hand, wrist and forearm. Again, this whole region works as a single unit, and the dysfunction of a single part needs consideration of the whole. An additional year of training (fellowship) is required for those surgeons seeking certification in hand surgery. Reid Orthopedics’ board-certified care providers treat conditions involving the bones, tendons and muscles of the hands, wrist and forearm. Under their experienced guidance, your recovery will be expertly diagnosed and carefully monitored from start to successful recovery.

Therapy may be necessary for any surgery involving the hand, wrist or elbow. The objective at Reid Orthopedics is to provide exercise and activities designed to help return you to an active, productive lifestyle.

If you are among the millions of Americans experiencing hand and upper extremity problems each year, finding expert care is all-important. Whether your pain is caused by arthritis, a sports injury, an accident or a congenital or work-related disorder, you can feel confident in choosing Reid Orthopedics for your care.

Pain Management

School Athletic Training Program

Reid Hospital provides athletic trainers at no cost to public high schools under the Reid Community Benefit program.  The expense is written off to the hospital’s community benefit.

Brian Steele, Sports Health Manager, said the trainers “are a great asset to our regional community.  This program puts medical professionals in the schools where they can greatly affect the health and wellness of the high school population.”  Athletic Trainers provide many important services in the high school setting:

  • Injury prevention – working with athletes, coaches, and administrators to reduce risk factors for student athletes.
  • Injury/illness response – Trainers attend many practices or events and are often the first health care professional to help with an injury or illness.  In this role the Athletic Trainer may be responding to issues with athletes, coaches, other staff or the general public. Being at the school allows the trainer to provide immediate treatment.  In many cases, immediate treatment may lessen the severity of the injury.
  • Injury assessment/triage – Trainers assess the type and extent of injuries and make recommendations for appropriate care.  In some cases that may be treatment in the athletic training room. In others, it may mean a trip to the doctor, urgent care or emergency room.
  • Treatment and rehabilitation –Trainers provide post acute and chronic care for their athletes involving a range of techniques, interventions, modalities, activities and exercises. Rehabilitation may be necessary for a variety of injuries ranging from a simple ankle sprain to complex post-surgical repairs like an ACL.
  • Communication –Trainers function in the context of a highly complex health care system in addition to the stresses of athletic competition.  The trainer is the central hub of communication between all parties in the sports medicine team: coaches, parents, athletes, care providers, doctors, administrators, therapists, nurses and others.
  • Return to Sports – For injuries that require a longer period away from sports, it is important to work back up to the previous level of competition.  Otherwise, risk for re-injury or even a new injury is greater because the athlete does too much too soon.
  • Health care cost savings –Trainers treat and rehabilitate many injuries at the school, helping reduce the need for trips to care providers’ offices or hospitals.  This saves money for the family, insurance, and government. Athletic trainers have a positive impact on health care.

Reid Orthopedics, our team care providers, will continue to provide specific times for athletes to walk in and be seen by a doctor or other care provider.  This allows for quick injury diagnosis and aides in returning athletes to their sport quickly.

“It is our sincere hope that these programs demonstrate the commitment that Reid has for the children of our communities and the commitment to helping them grow up well,” Steele said.
