Name Change Highlights Cutting-Edge Practice At Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists

Press release

New physicians, advanced medical training and surgical procedures, and customer service initiatives have led Orthopedic Professional Association, in partnership with LRGHealthcare, to update their name to Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists. The name was selected as best describing physicians highly skilled in traditional and groundbreaking surgical procedures, offering patients a broad scope of treatment options.

“We feel that the new name more accurately reflects the experience of our board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians,” said LRGHealthcare President and CEO Tom Clairmont. “We are fortunate that as top professionals in their field, who have worked in cities like Boston, our physicians have chosen to live and practice medicine in the Lakes and Three Rivers Regions of New Hampshire for the quality of life.”

Founded more than 50 years ago, Orthopedic Professional Association has evolved over time, keeping pace with innovative medical procedures and technological advances to treat the full range of musculoskeletal conditions. New physicians have joined the group, and services available to the community have expanded, including direct anterior hip replacement, the new GetAroundKnee knee replacement, and cutting edge ultrasound. With specialty training in current treatment options involving sports medicine, arthroscopy, back and spine problems, neurosurgery, and hip and knee arthritis, patients can expect world class surgical and non-surgical orthopaedic care close to home in the Lakes and Three Rivers regions.

The flagship facility, located at Hillside Medical Park in Gilford, offers onsite surgical services, x-ray, chiropractic, as well as rehabilitation services, including a state-of-the-art aquatic therapy pool. Satellite practices, located in Franklin and Meredith, also offer diagnosis and treatment, as well as onsite and nearby surgical and rehabilitation services.

As a department of Lakes Region General Hospital, Advanced Orthopaedic Services is backed by the comprehensive LRGHealthcare network, which provides access to advanced diagnostic technology, resources, and educational training.

Customer service improvements are underway, including a new and innovative Web site which offers the latest orthopaedic news and events, as well as patient resources such as online appointment requests. Patient reception areas in all three offices are also being updated.

Not just a pretty name, the team at Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists remains dedicated to providing a welcoming place for patients, where all are treated with respect and compassion. To learn more, please visit or call 528-9100.
