Orthopedic Treatment

Frye Regional's orthopedics and spine team specializes in a wide variety of sub-specialties in surgical and non surgical treatments. Our goal is to eliminate your pain and restore your functionality as quickly and safely as possible.


Our orthopedic team works with specialists at Frye Regional's rehabilitation center to provide intensive, individualized care at every level, from acute care to inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient therapy. Throughout the process, we focus on lifestyle rehabilitation, including physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapies.

Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation

As part of the Frye Regional's rehabilitation services, our acute care rehabilitation program provides physical, psychological, respiratory, and wound-healing therapies, as well as prosthetic/orthotic and other wound-healing therapies.

Physical and Occupational Medicine

Our physical and occupational therapy programs are about more than restoring functionality to the body—they’re about restoring your lifestyle and ability to pursue meaningful work. That’s why we work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that identifies goals, coordinate efforts, and help to ensure that all therapies are carried through to recovery, whether in our acute care unit, inpatient unit, or outpatient clinic.


Physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, or physiatrists, diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of disorders that affect how you move. The physiatrists at Frye Regional care for sports, spine, orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions and help people get moving again.

Joint Replacement & Preservation

Joint degeneration and dysfunction may arise from arthritis, osteonecrosis, congenital conditions, or injuries. Our orthopedic physicians, nurses, and therapists provide a range of both surgical and non surgical treatments of knee, hip, and shoulder conditions and injuries—from self-care education, physical therapy, occupational therapy and pain management to total joint replacement.

When joint replacement is necessary to reduce pain and restore functioning, our surgeons use technologically advanced prosthetic implants and surgical techniques to maximize the likelihood of a successful outcome.

Sports Medicine

Keeping active in the sport you love can feel like an impossible dream when you’re injured. Fortunately, our team of certified sports physicians, surgeons, trainers, and physical therapists are here to help.


Because the only good injury is one that never happens, the best time to contact us is when you’re active and uninjured. Our team of specialists—using advanced tools such as motion analysis and functional capacity analysis—can help pinpoint where you’re vulnerable, and develop a plan to help you minimize your risks while staying active.


From a sprain to a rotator cuff tear to an ACL injury, our sports physicians, therapists, and athletic trainers have the knowledge, skills, and credentials to diagnose and treat it—often with non surgical or minimally invasive techniques.
