Hess Orthopaedic Center and Sports Medicine, PLC was founded in 1971 by Irvin Hess, MD. In honor of Dr. Hess, and his service to our community, the practice has preserved the original practice name and its mission to provide the most comprehensive orthopedic care in our area.
Our physicians remain dedicated to providing advanced care through constant training, including minimally invasive surgical procedures.
We have an office-based surgical suite where our surgeons perform outpatient surgeries on-site, giving patients an alternative to the hospital setting. Our focus remains on each individual patient with a primary goal of improving your quality of life, returning you to your normal activities quickly and with as little pain as possible.
Our vision is to be the progressive leader in orthopaedic, podiatric surgery and pain management in our community, so that the healthcare needs of individuals in our community will be met without having to leave our community.
Our mission is to provide the very highest level of orthopedic, podiatric and pain management care available.
