University Orthopedics

University Orthopedics in Providence, Rhode Island, is a regional referral center for adult and pediatric patients with back and neck pain, joint pain, sports medicine problems, shoulder pain, hand problems, hip and knee pain, foot and ankle injury, bone tumors and major trauma.


The orthopedic center includes diagnostics, therapy gyms and more than 25 board-certified orthopedic surgeons. All of the physicians have extensive training in their sub-specialty including the only board- certified pediatric orthopedists in Rhode Island. The physicians are on the faculty of Brown University’s medical school as teachers of other new physicians, and leading the way with clinical research of the latest advances in orthopedic surgery and injury prevention. UOI also has satellite offices in East Greenwich and Newport.


Our affiliation with Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University enables new orthopaedic surgeons to learn the most advanced surgical techniques by working hand in hand with the experienced spine surgeons, hand surgeons, joint replacement surgeons, foot & ankle surgeons, trauma surgeons and sports medicine specialists at University Orthopedics.


We believe that the best quality healthcare comes from a well-informed patient. Consequently, we’ve developed here an online encyclopedia on orthopedic problems and treatments, including the realm of spine problems and sports medicine. Within our website you will find symptom charts, narrated videos on various treatments and surgical procedures, information on when symptoms need to be seen by a physician, and how to choose the best physician for your problem. You will learn how to make better medical decisions for your care, and if you need to get a second opinion for surgery, how to conduct that search for the right specialist.


Because of this super specialization in orthopedics, University Orthopedics is organized into CLINICAL CARE CENTERS which provides patients across Rhode Island — Providence County, Kent County, Washington County, Bristol County and Newport County — the most specialized care related to their orthopedic injury or pain symptom.
