You want control of your healthcare decisions. So if you have a chance to not only make an appointment with a doctor, but an owner, why wouldn’t you? The owner: the one who ultimately makes the decisions, the one who knows the answers to your questions and concerns, and then has the power to do something about it.

That’s how it is at doctor-owned Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists (OSMS). When you come to OSMS, you see one of our doctors: one of the owners. And each and every OSMS doctor is focused on the same mission – getting you back to the life you love with:

1. Comprehensive orthopedic care
From initial visit through rehabilitation. From urgent care to diagnostic services to surgery to physical therapy, everything you need for complete care is at one place: OSMS.

Whether it’s a broken bone, a hip replacement, a rotator cuff tear, a sprained ankle, or other orthopedic issue, OSMS has everyone and everything you need to get you back to the life you love.

2. Savings
Because OSMS offers you comprehensive care from diagnosis through therapy, you’ll save time and maybe even a few tanks of gas because you don’t have to go from place to place for care.

If you need an outpatient procedure, having it performed at the on-site surgery center in Green Bay can decrease costs by 40 percent on average (versus having it done in a hospital), and oftentimes results in a shorter recovery and less time off work.

3. A referral isn’t usually necessary
Finally, most people don’t need a referral to come to OSMS. A person’s insurance dictates that, but if you see a primary doctor and he or she recommends you see an orthopedic surgeon, you have the choice to see us. Even if a primary doctor doesn’t recommend OSMS, you can still make the choice to come see us!

4. See a physician every time
We believe establishing relationships goes a long way in helping with recovery. That’s why at OSMS, every patient sees a physician every time they come in. This allows the physician to know the problem and concern right away and then direct the patient experience that is personal to the patient.

5. Community
Several OSMS physicians grew up in Green Bay and many are from Wisconsin. They are all raising their own families here. They know and appreciate what it’s like to live and thrive in Northeast Wisconsin and want nothing else but to keep you enjoying all the activities, events and adventures available to you here.

OSMS and its physicians love their communities, and give back to them through volunteerism as well as monetarily. Last year alone (2018), our doctor-owned practice donated time and/or money to over 40 different organizations, including raising over $20,000 for the Arthritis Foundation of Wisconsin.

There are so many benefits to seeing an orthopedic surgeon at doctor-owned OSMS. And OSMS is proud to provide such specialized, personal care. It allows OSMS to be truly patient-focused and able to get you back to the life you love.
