Hickory Orthopaedic Center Merges With OrthoCarolina
OrthoCarolina, the most comprehensive orthopedic group in the Charlotte region, today announced the addition of Hickory Orthopaedic Center in Hickory, N.C.
“We’re eager to partner with the team at Hickory Orthopaedic Center to serve the needs of Hickory and the surrounding area,” said Robert McBride, MD, chairman of the board of OrthoCarolina. “Patients can expect the same top-quality care and service they’ve come to know from the team they trust.”
OrthoCarolina Hickory and its four satellite offices will continue to offer expertise in hand and microvascular surgery as well as access to fellowship-trained specialists in the areas of foot and ankle, hip and knee, spine, sports medicine and non-operative pain management.
The OrthoCarolina Hickory team is comprised of eight orthopedic surgeons, including William Pekman, MD; Mark McGinnis, MD; Peter Hurley, MD; Jeffrey Knapp, MD; William Geideman, MD; Jeremy Johnson, MD; Jason Norcross, MD; and Brian Krenzel, MD. The practice also includes physiatrists Russell Gilchrist, DO, and Kinjal Sohagia, MD.
“Hickory patients can expect us to build on the commitment to quality, service, community and teamwork they know from our team,” said Dr. Pekman. “In addition, we will work with OrthoCarolina to meet the requirements of healthcare reform as efficiently as possible.”
The Hickory Orthopaedic merger is OrthoCarolina’s fourth since late 2010. The practice has grown to include more than 125 physicians at 25 offices located throughout the Carolinas.
