Complete Orthopedic Care
Orthopedic trauma is an injury to a part of your musculoskeletal system – such as bones, joints, muscles or ligaments. Traumatic injury requires immediate medical attention. But no matter the severity, urgent and expert care is needed. At Integrated Surgical Specialists, we provide expert operative and nonoperative care for patients with musculoskeletal injuries and related complications. Our team is a regional resource for patients challenged by complex orthopedic trauma cases.
At Integrated Surgical Specialists, there are two types of sports medicine physicians. Dr. Phillips and Dr. Tiedeken are orthopedic surgeons that have completed a fellowship in sports medicine and upper extremity surgery. Dr. Brayford is a primary care physician that has completed his sports medicine fellowship at St. Luke’s Hospital.
This dual approach provides our patients with top notch care for both operative and nonoperative sports medicine injuries. Our fellowship-trained orthopedic physicians are here to care for your injured hands, elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles and feet.
We are committed to providing care to injuries sustained at all levels of physical activity. Whether you are professional athlete or a recreational sports enthusiast, we offer innovative, advanced and minimally-invasive treatment options to get active individuals “back in the game.”
Sports related injuries may occur at any age. Not only do we treat injuries after they occur, but we also strive to prevent injuries through educating our patients on proper equipment, training and exercises that can help avoid injury. While Dr Phillips and Dr. Tiedeken are trained to perform surgery, Dr. Brayford manages nonoperative sports injures, but will referral to one of our orthopedic surgeons if needed.
Our physician team work alongside physical therapists and athletic trainers to create rehabilitation protocols and develop an appropriate care plan.
Hand surgery is a complex and intricate sub-specialty in orthopedics. Dr. Nathan Tiedeken completed his fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. At Integrated Surgical Specialists, we work with dedicated hand therapists to provide a comprehensive treatment plan from the time of injury until final healing. We recognize hand pain can be debilitating and impact your life and work, and Integrated Surgical Specialists will work with you to restore hand function and quality of life.
HIP ARTHROSCOPY (HiP SCOPE)
Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat problems of the hip joint and surrounding soft tissues including muscles, ligaments, tendons. This allows doctors to view the hip joint without making a large incision through the skin and other soft tissues. Minimally invasive procedures such as hip arthroscopy can improve recovery time and restore function. Dr. Jason Phillips completed his sports surgery training at The Steadman Hawkins Clinic. He is one of the few orthopedic surgeons that provides this specialty procedure. He has instructed other surgeons on hip and shoulder arthroscopy and courses around the nation. Dr. Phillips continues to provide state of the art care for his hip pain patients in the field of hip arthroscopy.
