Our Approach

The orthopedic clinical specialists and physicians of CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Health System work with patients to provide the best treatment for your specific needs, with the goal of improving your overall well being. Our orthopedic staff cares for people from all walks of life – athletes, arthritis sufferers, children, diabetics, accident victims, injured workers and senior citizens. More than that, though, the center’s staff treats the patient as a whole, taking into account related medical conditions, such as cancer or diabetes.

We treat injuries and diseases in the following areas:

  • Spine
  • Extremities
  • Muscles
  • Bones
  • Tendons
  • Cartilage
  • Ligaments
  • Joints


With Orthodirect, patients have rapid access to the highest level of orthopedic care. Those experiencing pain or who have an injury can walk in without an appointment to one of several Good Shepherd Family Health Centers to be screened by a physician’s assistant. If needed, the patient will be immediately referred to be seen the same day or next day by an orthopedic surgeon.
