Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jaakkola "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."

I had a total left knee recently. I saw Dr. Jaakkola on the first visit and since then have seen Nick his PA. He is wonderful and very patient and very clear with explaining things. I am happy with the orthopedic practice.

Dr. Jaakola is an exceptional surgeon. He takes on challenging surgeries with confidence and dedication. If you spend extra time in the waiting room to see him, it's because his patients needed him; feel fortunate that you are going to receive this same care.
