Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) July 26, 2011 -- If you've ever broken a bone and struggled with getting a qualified doctor to treat you or your family, Arizona Orthopaedic Associates at Gateway has a solution.
The orthopedic surgeons at Arizona Orthopaedic Associates offer same-day appointments for Phoenix residents who are suffering from a broken bone emergency, joint sprain or other painful mishaps. From complex fractures to simple breaks, the AOA staff is well qualified to handle your emergency.
The doctors at Arizona Orthopaedic Associates are consistently voted some of the best doctors in Phoenix and several have appeared in PHOENIX Magazine's annual "Top Doctors" issues.
With full x-ray, MRI and physical therapy departments on site, the doctors at Arizona Orthopaedic Associates can have you or your loved ones examined and treated in a much more efficient manner by some of the best doctors in the state.
"We believe in providing the best care possible and that extends to ensuring that initially each and every patient is treated by one of our nine orthopedic surgeons, not by a mid-level provider such as a physician's assistant," said Dr. Douglas Hartzler of Arizona Orthopaedic Associates. "It's about quality of care to us and making sure that your medical emergency is treated with the utmost professionalism and timeliness."
Arizona Orthopaedic Associates has a long history of innovation in orthopedic care. The Phoenix-based surgeons' group introduced the anterior hip replacement to Arizona and has now completed more than 1,000 such surgeries.
The group also introduced the Signature Knee procedure, which allows for a higher level of detailed information for positioning a knee replacement, thus reducing premature wear and ensuring a more accurate fit.
"At the end of the day, you want to receive the best medical care available," Dr. Hartzler said. "Our same-day appointments make that a realistic possibility for all Arizona residents."
