Bone & Joint Institute opens as complete musculoskeletal care center
"Our new location offers what some might call ‘one-stop musculoskeletal care shopping,’ including physical therapy, access to a surgery center, easy surgery scheduling, X-rays and imaging," said David Lichtman, MD, chair of the UNT Health Science Center’s Department of Orthopaedic Medicine.
The group has 10 orthopedic surgeons, a primary care sports medicine physician, a rheumatologist, an osteopathic manipulative medicine physician, three podiatrists and a physician assistant. UNT Health’s orthopedic practice on the Health Science Center campus moved into the new facility.
"We are creating a new environment for our patients," Lichtman said of the 7,400-square-foot facility. "Bringing the full spectrum of bone and joint care together in a location that’s conducive to improving the patient experience is the core reason we made the move to the Ben Hogan Center."
