Overview

Our Mission

Be the orthopedic practice of choice for people seeking a personal approach to orthopedic care, empowering patients to play an active role in their treatment.  Our world-class doctors provide an unconditional commitment to patient satisfaction, education, evidence-based quality, cost-effective services and innovative technology to support patients’ needs.

Advancing care one conversation at a time.

Our practice was born out of the consolidation of Blackstone Orthopedics, Foundry Orthopedics and South County Orthopedics and a like-minded focus on providing the very best orthopedic care from providers who understand what it means to be a patient. We’re an independent practice that offers you a high-touch, cost-effective, private practice alternative. Our promise to each patient:

  • You’ll be seen promptly – we understand you’re not only feeling pain, but apprehension too.
  • You’ll get the attention you want from supportive professionals who spend the time to listen and provide you with options and optimism.
  • You’ll get the education you need to be an informed partner in your care.

At Ortho Rhode Island, you’re in the best hands for healing with the most comprehensive musculoskeletal care in Rhode Island and southern New England. We offer you highly trained physicians, surgeons, therapists and trainers, cutting-edge diagnostics, and exceptional aftercare. From your initial physician appointment to your last physical therapy session, you’ll find you are at the center of all we do.
