About Us

Let's make it better, together. Next Journey Orthopaedics treats acute injuries and chronic conditions for bone, tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints and nerves.

We focus on improving the ability for patients to connect with their physicians. We also search to constantly improve ways to provide patients with the key information about their injuries and conditions. This leads to a shared decision making experience that allows a greater ability to meet set expectations. We actively aim to ease the navigation not only with our services but also the services of our referral community.

The orthopaedic consultants at Next Journey Orthopaedics are dedicated to providing orthopaedic services in a patient-friendly environment. We make an effort to provide each patient with the utmost access and communication towards their orthopaedic condition. Our providers communicate with our patients through education, support, and empathy. As orthopaedic specialists our primary focus is to help patients with their orthopaedic concerns.

We strive to innovate orthopaedic services by trying to provide accessibility and seamlessness of care. We are striving for this through our active use of technology, providing informational resources and establishing communication lines to remove as much of the anxiety of the treatment and recovery experience.

We provide a superior experience in your steps to recovery by being responsive to your concerns, decreasing the efforts to have those concerns addressed and constantly striving to improve this process. We seek to make your healthcare journey, an informative and efficient process by providing a pathway that directs you to the most definitive care as early as possible. We will empower you with the ability to determine the best course specifically for you.

We affirm your right to make informed decisions and value a patient-centered care approach. Our orthopaedic physicians are focused on helping patients return to their lives as close as possible to the same way they lived them before orthopaedic conditions began, whether that is working or competing in sports or enjoying life with family.

Mission: Quadruple Aim

What is Quadruple Aim?

Next Journey Orthopaedics provides superior patient experience with value based care. We focus on the whole person not just your musculoskeletal condition. It is about empowering you as patients to take control of their own health and giving you the tools you need to stay healthy. The healthcare industry continues to move toward quadruple aim and value based care principles. Quadruple aim is the approach to simultaneously improve patient outcomes, patient experience, reduce costs, and support the staff that take care of you. Value based care is the approach where providers focus on the quality not quantity of care. It encourages providers to focus on delivering the best possible care to their patients, rather than simply providing more services. At Next Journey Orthopaedics, we believe that the quadruple aim and value based care are not only compatible, but essential to providing the best possible care for our patients. At Next Journey Orthopaedics, we believe that the patient experience should be at the center of everything we do. We provide you with the highest quality of care and the best possible outcomes. We continue to work hard to ensure that you have a positive experience throughout your journey with us.
