Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) June 26, 2009 -- The expert-care physicians at Arizona Orthopaedic Associates at Gateway believe no one should have to wait when they need expert orthopedic care.
Ensuring every patient, young or old, receives priority treatment and expert care has been a cornerstone of the Phoenix practice since the first partners came together more than 20 years ago. To that end, patients are seen in a timely manner, in a professional and friendly environment where comprehensive orthopedic care, including x-ray, casting or bracing and surgeries, if necessary, are provided promptly.
âMy whole experience was favorable,â said Terry Watson, a Gilbert resident who visited AOA's Dr. David Ott for knee replacement surgery. âDr. Ott talks to you like youâre a friend and explains everything in plain, understandable terms. He explained what I could expect and it went as exactly as he said.â
AOA doctors are highly trained and can handle anything from a simple break to the most complex reconstruction, including total joint replacement, arthroscopy and sports medicine.
For Valley mom Nicole Yule, that care and expertise was the deciding factor during her Valley wide search for care of her infant daughter. She ultimately chose AOA orthopedic surgeon Dr. Delwyn Worthington.
âDr. Worthington, I felt, had a better rapport with my child,â said Yule, who believed Dr. Worthingtonâs experience helped to make the entire family feel more comfortable during a difficult time. âI felt he was willing to try everything to avoid surgery, which I appreciated as a parent.â
Dr. Worthington had come highly recommended when Yule was researching Valley orthopedic surgeons. âWeâd heard wonderful things,â Yule said.
In fact, many AOA orthopedic surgeons consistently rank among the top doctors in the state and all AOA surgeons focus on comprehensive, high-quality, cutting-edge orthopedic care.
AOA specializes in orthopedics and has tailored its practice to provide the best possible quality of care available. The orthopedic surgeons at AOA pride themselves on keeping up on the latest advancements in the field and history demonstrates that.
AOA physicians have implemented several innovative procedures in the past decade, including anterior hip replacement, the Oxford Knee replacement procedure and advanced arthroscopic surgery. The idea is to provide superior care at all times.
AOA provides in-house physical therapy services that tailor treatment plans to the therapy needs of each individual patient. AOAâs physical therapy department focuses on restoring, maintaining and promoting overall fitness and health. Also available on-site are an ambulatory surgery center and MRI facilities.
Put it all together and patients are able to receive the comprehensive care and treatment that Arizona Orthopaedic Associates has become known for, making it the first stop for thousands of Arizonans.
