Total hip, knee and other joint replacements are now available at Rooks County Health Center (RCH) via Greg Sarin, DO of Storm Mountain Orthopedics in Steamboat Springs Colo. Along with offering general orthopedic services, Dr. Sarin specializes in all aspects of knee injuries as well as trauma, sports medicine and total joint replacement. He is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon with the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Sarin also serves as a physician for the U.S. Ski Team.
“Dr. Sarin’s surgical services allow those in Rooks County and the surrounding area to have procedures completed close to home,” said Mike Sinclair, RCH CEO. “Patients can take great comfort and trust having their surgical and physical therapy teams in the same facility working closely on the best treatment and follow-up plan.”
RCH’s Orthopedic Clinic provides weekly consultations and procedures by Dr. Sarin as well as Joel McReynolds, PA-C of New West Sports Medicine in Kearney, Neb. The addition of Dr. Sarin to the specialty clinic offerings at RCH comes just as RCH awaits installation of a permanent in-house MRI, which is Phase I of RCH’s expansion project. An in-house MRI will dramatically decrease the time between imaging and surgery and in return lead to more efficient scheduling.
“The need for MRI increases with the pre-operative templating required for replacements,” said Sinclair. “The plans for expansion are now crucial as demand for services throughout the hospital grows.
With the Phase II proposed expansion, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Departments will be able to aid patients sooner after surgery with the new rehab facility and zero-entry hydrotherapy pool.
“Our focus is to bring in specialists along with state-of-the-art technology together with effective facilities to give our patients quality, personalized care in a progressive, nurturing and innovative environment,” said Sinclair. “We believe that health care depends on a combination of medical technology, caring and skilled medical professionals in an excellent medical environment.”
