From their offices in Rockwall, Greenville, and Kaufman, these physicians can work with almost any insurance or health plan at almost any area facility. A new office in Richardson is also on the horizon.
If rehabilitation is part of a patient’s treatment, Premier Physical Therapy, at the same location as Lake Pointe Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s Rockwall office, creates a seamless delivery of therapy for patients. The skilled physical therapists can follow the treatment plans’ requirements while easing the patient’s journey to whole health. Adam Bruce, Doctor of Physical Therapy, has taken the helm at Premier, leading the team in the newest techniques for physical therapy in orthopedics.
What sets the Lake Pointe practice apart is a focus on spending time with patients. All the combined training and expertise of the physicians, Physician Assistants, Erica Mumford, and Sibu Kuriakase, and staff go into making a positive experience for the patient from start to finish. This work toward positive outcomes also extends to the practice’s employees.
“We’re only succeeding if our patients and staff are succeeding,” says Dr. Aldrich.
The mission at Lake Pointe Orthopaedics is to provide high-quality, efficient, and compassionate care to patients, while fostering a supportive and professional environment in the offices. The physicians and staff strive to treat every patient and employee with respect and gratitude, and work together to achieve goals. This group works collaboratively with patients to achieve health goals and improve quality of life.
A new treatment practiced by Lake Pointe has proved to be a helpful tool for treating a variety of conditions like arthritis and tendinopathies. This orthobiologic treatment known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or bone marrow contents treatment uses patients’ own cells and growth factors to accelerate healing. Blood is taken from the patient and concentrated, then injected into the site of pain or injury.
Issues with the musculoskeletal system can present with a range of symptoms, but most often, it is pain that prompts the search for a medical solution. Lake Pointe Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s range of services is designed to address that pain no matter what the injury.
Not every injury requires surgery. A range of non-surgical options can help increase mobility and reduce pain. The physicians and staff at Lake Pointe Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine will work to develop an individualized plan for each patient, considering specific needs and preferences.
Athletes at every level suffer aches and pains throughout their bodies due to the repetitive stress on muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. With the expert assistance of the team at Lake Pointe Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, sporting goals and peak performance can again be achieved.
The Lake Pointe website includes extensive information on each of the specialties these highly trained doctors treat. Learning about knee, shoulder and elbow, hip, foot and ankle, hand and wrist, fractures, strains, and sprains issues and injuries allows patients to understand better and fully participate in creating a treatment plan to restore painless movement and strength.
