Dallas, Texas (PressExposure) September 15, 2013 -- Minimally Invasive SpineCARE, a fully comprehensive spine center for surgical and non-surgical treatments, unveiled a new medical services division last week called OrthoCARE. It will enable the nationally acclaimed spine center to better serve patients by offering general orthopedics, foot and ankle care, and sports medicine.
"With the addition of OrthoCARE, Minimally Invasive SpineCARE is now a one-stop shop for orthopedics. We can literally treat patients from head to toe," says Dr. Nere Onosode, a foot and ankle specialist.
Minimally Invasive SpineCARE hired Dr. Onosode and his colleague, Dr. Reggie Alexander, an orthopedist and sports medicine expert, to lead OrthoCARE. In their leadership positions, Dr. Onosode and Dr. Alexander will serve patients with a wide variety of orthopedic needs covering toes, ankles, feet, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows and more.
"I'm excited to be joining the Minimally Invasive SpineCARE team and to be able to help shape the OrthoCARE part of the practice. We hope to develop a world-renowned center for foot and ankle, orthopedics and sports medicine," explains Dr. Alexander.

He holds his bachelor's degree from The University of Louisville and his medical degree from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. He completed his podiatric medicine and surgery residency with a rear-foot and ankle-surgery certification at The University of Louisville/Jewish Hospital.
