South Bend Orthopaedics

About our Practice

South Bend Orthopaedics

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 and Elkhart, 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 non-operative spine & 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 Non-Operative Spine & Rehabilitation.

Why We Work as Associates

SBO promises Excellence in Orthopaedics. Patients coming into our locations in South Bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart , Plymouth and LaPorte, Indiana, receive optimum care and doctors benefit from working together as a team.
