ON A MISSION TO RESTORE PATIENTS’ QUALITY OF LIFE IN JOPLIN, MO AND THE ENTIRE FOUR STATE AREA
Orthopaedic Specialists of the Four States (Ortho Four States) is the largest and most comprehensive neck-to-toe orthopedic, spine, sports medicine, physical therapy, aquatic rehabilitation, and interventional pain management care group and facility serving Joplin, MO and the entire Four State Area, with a compassionate, patient-first approach to world-class orthopedic care.
Unlike the hospital system, Ortho Four States was founded and is operated by fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic, spine, and sports medicine doctors and surgeons, focused on a mission to restore patients’ quality of life. Many Ortho Four States physicians grew up in the Joplin area and returned home after training and working their residency in larger cities around the country. While away, Ortho Four States’ doctors acquired advanced medical and surgical techniques and identified various ways to best care for patients. Each with their own area of orthopedic specialty, Ortho Four States physician-architects came together to collectively forge a master plan to build Ortho Four States’ patient-centered practice and orthopedic facility.
Uniquely structured to maximize patient benefit and choice, our orthopedic, spine, and sports medicine doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, athletic trainers, and physical therapists, work together to provide patients and their families with individually created care plans targeted at correcting and eliminating the pain and suffering caused by injuries and disorders of the spine and joints.
Designed for total comfort and convenience, Ortho Four States is located only minutes from downtown Joplin, MO, and is the regions’ full-service and easy-access orthopedic, spine, sports medicine, physical therapy, aquatic rehabilitation, and interventional pain management campus, including state-of-the-art equipment, HydroWorx therapy pools in the nationally recognized rehabilitation center, imagin center, as well as a pharmacy, outpatient surgery center, and hospital.
Also differentiating Ortho Four States is our ability to take the confusion out of navigating the complex insurance and healthcare system, with patient service from a staff that’s always friendly and available to help.
From medical treatments and physical therapy, to non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures, to the most challenging musculoskeletal surgeries, Ortho Four States serves those needing neck-to-toe treatment for accidents, injuries, sports medicine, athletic training, physical therapy, aquatic rehabilitation, pain management, joint replacement and revision, bone health, falling risk assessment, PRP injections, medical conditions, disease processes, and infection.
Patients don’t need a referral to receive care at Ortho Four States, which accepts most insurance plans including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare, and many Freeman and Mercy directed plans.
We are honored to have been voted “Best of the Four States” as well as in 417 Magazine’s “Top Doctors,” and selected as “One of the Best Places to Work” by the Joplin Regional Business Journal.
