Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sutker "At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you."

Examined my hand/thumb, gave me a diagnosis, explained it, then gave me an injection using ultrasound as a guide for the needle. 100% success! Felt so much better & still do.
