About our Practice
Since 1947, South Bend Orthopaedics has focused on providing every patient the best orthopaedic care available. A Tradition of Excellence in Orthopaedics is our mission, and is reflected in our relationship with the University of Notre Dame. South Bend Orthopaedics, with additional locations in Mishawaka, Plymouth, La Porte, Elkhart and Bremen, Indiana has provided the orthopaedic surgeons for their athletic department since 1949.
But you don’t have to be a trained athlete to benefit from our expertise. At SBO our goal is to get you back in the game, whether that means sports, work, or just everyday life. We provide specialized care for our surgery and rehab patients, as well as those suffering from work-related or sports injuries. We are experts in joint replacement, sports medicine, trauma, hand, spine and foot/ankle care.
Our Physicians are Board Certified
Board certification is an important achievement in the world of orthopaedics. To become board certified, our surgeons and physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians completed undergraduate work, four years of medical school, and five years of postgraduate study, which includes internship and residency programs. They have also been practicing orthopaedic physicians for two years and passed the exam from the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons or the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
