Our Services

The main focus at Center for Specialty Care (CSC) is to provide the latest non-surgical and surgical techniques for orthopedics, spine, and podiatry. Comprehensive care starts from the time someone suffers an injury to their bones, ligaments, or muscles and continues through rehabilitation. Our staff is on the field or in the gymnasium at many local sporting events, helping to prevent injury and provide immediate care when an accident occurs.

Consider Us Your Best Option for These Conditions:


There are over 100 types of arthritis. The majority of arthritis patients seen in our offices have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Our staff is knowledgeable in all areas of treatment and solutions to reduce the pain.

Back Pain

Lower back pain prevents people from going to work, participating in recreational activities, and enjoying life. The majority of care provided at CSC is non-surgical therapy and treatments to avoid surgery. Exercise, injections, and therapy help reduce the pain and may be the solution for a patient.


Emergency care for broken bones is provided by Center for Specialty Care physicians at local hospital and our offices. Because many of our support staff are in attendance at local sporting events and are on the field during events, many times we are the first responders.
