Our Physicians and Advanced Practitioners
Dr. James Bowers andDr. Amy Franta with Advanced Practitioners: Laura Dhanansayan, Jeff Kobernusz and Sarah Hittner understand how frustrating it can be when joint pain or an injury interrupts the daily flow of your life. That's why you can count on us to listen to you and thoroughly assess the problem. We'll take time to understand the activities you want to get back to and discuss potential treatment options - such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, strength training and, if appropriate, surgical options.
