Orthopedic Specialists is a comprehensive orthopedic group offering non-surgical and surgical options for injured workers. Our physicians are familiar with occupational injuries and understand the importance of providing effective treatment and addressing work capabilities that apply to each individual’s situation. Our specialists find that communication with all parties involved provides the best outcomes.

Our orthopedic experts include Dr. Michael Chabot, Dr. Matthew Collard, Dr. Richard Howard, Dr. Joseph Ritchie, and Dr. Kevin Rutz. Our physicians exhaust all conservative treatment options before recommending surgery. If surgical intervention is required, our physicians provide minimally invasive surgical techniques.
