State of the Art Facility

In an effort to continue our long tradition of excellence in all aspects of orthopaedic care, we want you to be aware of the advancements that have been made to our practice. We have combined our three offices into one large facility located a couple of miles from our surgery center in the Carolina Forest area.

In order to more efficiently serve you, our x-rays are fully digital. This will make it easier for you to obtain copies if you should need them. Our state-of-the-art imaging suite features Siemens 1.5T Symphony MRI. We will also continue to offer Bone Density exams through our Delphi Hologic DEXASCAN.

The new facility is easily accessible off Hwy 31 coming from either direction, located just off International Boulevard.

Consisting of ten board-certified and one board-eligible orthopaedic surgeons, the group is representative of some of the finest medical schools in the nation. Strand Orthopaedic provides the best care from simple sprains to the most complex spinal or sports related injuries. It is our mission to get patients "back to life" and "back in the game" and help them resume normal activities in the safest and shortest amount of time.

As the first Orthopaedic group to treat sports related injuries in the area, Strand Orthopaedic Consultants has consistently been the leader in our field.
