At Carilion Clinic we have the technology and resources to diagnose and manage the full spectrum of orthopaedic conditions. I strive to use that technology to treat the whole patient, not just the X-ray.

Level 1 Trauma Center
With a Level 1 Trauma Center, we are a regional resource providing the highest level of specialized trauma and critical care services to the Roanoke Valley and surrounding rural areas, supported by three Life-Guard helicopters for rapid response.
We’re prepared to treat whatever comes our way with a team of trauma surgeons, emergency room physicians and other specialists that are available to provide immediate care for critical injuries that must be treated in a very narrow window of time.
Limb deformities can be present from birth; develop over time; or result from fracture, infection, arthritis or tumor. Some limb deformities can be life-altering and others may be more of a cosmetic concern. Because deformities can also affect joint alignment, a deformity left untreated may result in musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis or back pain, and potentially prevent patients from participating in activities they enjoy.
The Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences (ION) is an innovative convergence of leading medical practitioners who provide expert care to patients. ION serves as a model for medical students, research fellows and residents—the next generation of providers. ION provides a shared vision of collaboration and a team-based approach to healing.
The Orthopaedic Department provides fellowship training for surgeons from across the United States to help them provide better care.
