CANTON — OMNI Orthopaedics offers medical care to people with fractures, sprains and musculoskeletal injuries.

The practice, located at 4760 Belpar St. N.W., has 16 doctors, a well-trained support staff and the latest technology available at the OMNI Medical Center, according to OMNI officials. The center is a 43,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art complex that offers multi-specialty orthopaedic care all under one roof, according to OMNI officials.

Services at the practice focus on sports medicine, joint reconstruction, trauma/fracture care, and shoulder, elbow, wrist/hands, knee, foot/ankle and spine problems, according to OMNI officials.

“We offer comprehensive care for musculoskeletal pain for people of all ages,” said Richard Berube, operations and human resources manager. “We have on staff orthopaedic and podiatric surgeons, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, a rehabilitation psychologist, a physical therapy department and MRI services.”

Berube said patients often begin with a comprehensive physical to get an accurate diagnosis, and then an individualized treatment plan is created to relieve discomfort and restore function while minimizing possible risks.

According to the practice’s website, orthopaedic surgeons on staff keep current on the newest advances in care, including computer-assisted surgery and minimally invasive procedures in treating patients. While surgery is available, OMNI officials said they don’t often recommend surgery and believe in the benefits of physical and occupational therapy.

“We believe in the team approach to patient evaluation and care to provide early diagnosis and successful treatment,” said Berube.

Along with the treatment of immediate or chronic problems, doctors at the practice strive to integrate the doctrine of prevention in all their treatment plans as a way to alleviate possible future difficulties, according to OMNI officials.

OMNI Orthopaedics was named a winner in the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce 2013 Business Excellence Awards. Selections were based on business and employment growth, expansion of operations and efficiencies, consistent outstanding customer service, investments in capital improvements, innovation and expansion of product lines, responsiveness to business and industry challenges and adversity, and consistent community involvement, according to OMNI officials.

OMNI accepts most insurance plans.

The office is open Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. To make an appointment, call 330-492-9200.
