What Our Patients
Are Saying

Dr. Cash recently did a total hip replacement for my left hip and prior to surgery he went over the whole procedure. He told me that my hip area pain would be gone ...he was right. Very caring and will trust him completely with any surgery.


Dr. Braaton treated my grandmother who suffered from dementia with respect and dignity. He thoroughly explained her injury and provided multiple options in a clear and compassionate manner.


I was having trouble with my right foot, I had already seen a specialist about it. I was talking to one of his patients, my brother in-law, and he told me before I do anything I should really come talk to this guy, and that’s what I did...I’m pretty satisfied with what was done to my foot and that’s basically what it’s all about... I can’t stress enough for people if they want to get foot surgery done this is the gentleman they need to talk to.

“Dr. Purnell took very good care of my 5 year old daughter with a tricky break near her shoulder. Previous doctor was going to allow it to heal with 100% fracture and 30% offset. He did such a good job that she is now 11 and an excellent pitcher playing fast pitch softball.”

“Dr. Purnell has done both of my knees and did an awesome job. I was back in the saddle and out hiking within 12 weeks. I highly recommend him!”

Why go to OrthoMed Center?

At OrthoMed, all our orthopedic surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS). ABOS Certification demonstrates an orthopedic surgeon’s attainment of high standards for education, knowledge, experience, and skills.

During an appointment at OrthoMed, our team of specialists will provide you with an immediate diagnosis of the injury, corrective treatment, and medication, if needed. We’ll also discuss your long-term options for recovery.

In other clinics, you are likely to be referred to a specialist for examination at a later date, prolonging wait times and increasing costs in physician visits. By going directly to OrthoMed’s orthopedic specialists, you can avoid extra appointments, as well as the typically higher costs of emergency room visits for non-life-threatening injuries.

OrthoMed is your one-stop shop to consult qualified specialists from the beginning of your treatment for better outcomes and less hassle –getting the care you need when you need it. It is a more cost-effective way for integrated, streamlined care.

Does OrthoMed Center offer Regenerative Medicine services?

Yes, OrthoMed Center offers Regenerative Medicine treatment options for patients that are between conservative therapy and are not ready for major invasive surgery.

Patients of all ages experience injuries or orthopedic issues that cause them discomfort. Usually, the first line of treatment is conservative interventions like physical therapy, corticosteroids, and viscosupplementation. When these options are no longer effective, patients suffer from debilitating pain, reduced quality of life, and significant financial burden.

Regenerative Medicine offers viable treatment options that can amplify our natural healing processes and improve our health and function. 

At OrthoMed Center, we provide the latest affordable, minimally invasive therapies that replace, repair, or promote tissue regeneration for acute and chronic orthopedic conditions. Our physicians are experienced in Regenerative Medicine and advanced interventional pain management techniques, including Orthobiologics, Lipogems, and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
