On June 4, OrthoCarolina opened a new office in Lincolnton, located at 441 McAlister Road, Suite 1100A, next to Atrium Health Lincoln.
OrthoCarolina provides medical services that focus on general orthopedics, physiatry, shoulder, elbow, hand, spine and sports medicine.
The physicians that will be primary located in Lincolnton are Verano Hermida, MD, Jason Wong, MD, and Scott Ajela, PA-C. These physicians will also be performing surgery at Atrium Health Lincoln. Dr. Hermida, bilingual in English and Spanish, specializes in the areas of sports medicine, arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery, total hip and knee replacement, and general orthopedics. Dr. Wong specializes in both sports medicine and orthopedic surgery. Along with these three anchor physicians, there will be seven traveling providers to OrthoCarolina Lincolnton, who specialize in physiatry, sports medicine, spine, hand, shoulder and elbow.
It is important to OrthoCarolina that each location has providers who can meet a variety of needs.
“OrthoCarolina’s goal is to expand the services we have in that region of North Carolina and better serve patients in Lincoln County with a broader range of orthopedic care including specialty orthopedics. We also have a Spanish-speaking orthopedic surgeon on our Lincolnton team,” said Bruce Cohen, MD, CEO of OrthoCarolina.
OrthoCarolina chose to open a Lincolnton office in order to serve the local community which was encouraged due to their connection to Atrium Health Lincoln.
“We saw a need for a deeper scope of orthopedic services in Lincolnton, and we are able to better align care for our patients there alongside the team at Atrium Health with whom we work closely,” Dr. Cohen said.
