Why Bone & Joint?

Bone & Joint has one of the most comprehensive teams of orthopedic, pain management, and physical therapy experts in Northcentral Wisconsin.  We aren’t a division of another corporate healthcare organization; Bone & Joint belongs to us.  Since many of our orthopedic experts are also owners of the practice, their reputations are on the line.

We are independent.

With facilities in Medford, Merrill, Plover, and Wausau, Bone & Joint is a “pro-active” choice for your family. When injuries or arthritis interferes with your movement, turn to the orthopedic experts at the Bone & Joint Center. Each provider is committed to getting you back in motion and back to an active life.

Our high-quality care costs less.

Because we are independent and operate from a self-contained ambulatory care facility, we are able to keep our costs lower. Unlike large hospitals with massive overhead costs, our practice runs lean on expenses and high on quality. This allows us to pass the savings on to you.

Multi-specialty under one roof.

Having multiple specialists onsite means you won’t have to visit multiple clinics for answers. Our multispecialty clinic offers providers specializing in orthopedics,  pain management, spine, sports medicine, foot & ankle, and podiatry. When you visit Bone & Joint, you receive the benefit of our collaborative, team approach to care.

We provide non-surgical care.

If your condition does not require emergency surgery, we work with you to find the least invasive treatment that will relieve your pain and increase your mobility. Treatments may range from physical therapy, exercise, bracing, medication or injections. If surgery needs to be considered, we have the experts for that, too.

You will be involved in each decision and understand the reason for the treatment and expected outcome of your care plan.

We have open-communication.

We are here to give you answers and guidance through the whole process. From pre to post op instructions, exercises and pain management programs, we will lay out the best path to your recovery.

Your ability to achieve the maximum improvement possible is important to us.

Bone & Joint Technology

For patients who are concerned about viruses or would prefer the convenience of a virtual house call, they can take advantage of our new telehealth service. Through this technology, we can continue to provide you high-quality orthopedic, pain management, sports medicine, and podiatry care. It’s safe, convenient, and easy to use. More

Since MRI images typically provide more information about a condition and can sometimes see things x-rays and CT scans cannot, it is a great tool for detecting bone and joint issues. With an MRI, our physicians and surgeons can diagnosis arthritis, cartilage problems, torn ligaments and tendons, infections, broken bones and more.

Bone & Joint uses the most current digital X-ray technology to offer low-dose imaging services to our patients. Our digital imaging receptor is extremely efficient. The radiation dose is 1/3 less than that of a computed X-ray, which is commonly used in the market today.

At Bone & Joint, we utilize ultrasound for diagnostic imaging technology and to guide pain management specialists in locating areas for local injections. Using sound waves to image body parts, ultrasounds are safe and radiation-free.
