Orthopaedic Specialists of Brunswick County To Join OrthoWilmington

WILMINGTON, NC, October 27, 2014— OrthoWilmington, southeastern North Carolina’s most comprehensive orthopaedic practice, is pleased to announce the planned addition of Orthopaedic Specialists, effective January 1, 2015.

Combining with Orthopaedic Specialists will bring OrthoWilmington to 23 physicians, 17 physician assistants, and three nurse practitioners. It will also add seven offices in the five towns of Southport, Leland, Supply, Sunset Beach and Carolina Beach to OrthoWilmington’s six area locations in New Hanover, Brunswick and Onslow counties. “The practices will continue to operate independently until January first,” said OrthoWilmington Chief Executive Officer Stephen L. DeBiasi, CMPE, FACHE. “ In fact, day-to-day operations at all locations of the two practices will not be significantly affected, so patients should continue to contact their current providers at the same locations, by the same means they currently use.

“The real change will be OrthoWilmington’s increased reach into southern Brunswick County, and better access to our range of sub-specialists for people living in those areas,” he continued.

DeBiasi commented that combining practices will significantly augment both practices’ already expansive physical therapy services, and also give OrthoWilmington a significant presence at the two Brunswick County hospitals: Dosher Memorial Hospital and Brunswick Novant Medical Center.

“We are very excited about coming together to enhance orthopaedic care throughout southeastern North Carolina,” said Michael M. Marushack, MD, of Orthopaedic Specialists. “We already refer patients back and forth to each other, so joining forces as a single practice will feel very natural.”

“From both business and clinical perspectives, there is strength in numbers,” said DeBiasi. “By integrating our services, we can create an even more efficient organization to help reduce healthcare costs, improve clinical outcomes, and enhance patient satisfaction.”


OrthoWilmington is the regional referral center for comprehensive orthopaedic care. Through a medical team of 18 specialists, the practice offers fellowship-trained and board-certified experts in a variety of subspecialties within orthopaedics including spine, sports medicine, hip and knee joint reconstruction and revision, hand and upper extremity, foot and ankle, trauma as well as physical medicine and rehabilitation.

OrthoWilmington’s offices are headquartered at 2716 Ashton Drive and 3787 Shipyard Boulevard in Wilmington, with satellite offices in Porters Neck, Brunswick Forest and Jacksonville. In addition to the full range of specialty orthopaedic care, the group offers AccessOrtho, a walk-in clinic for immediate non-emergency care at the Ashton Drive location, physical therapy services through all office locations, and a high-field MRI Imaging Center.


For more than 25 years, Orthopaedic Specialists has provided comprehensive, state-ofthe- art orthopaedic care to southeastern North Carolina through offices in Southport, Supply, Sunset Beach, Carolina Beach and Leland. Offering a range of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, the five physicians specialize in sports medicine, spinal care, joint replacement and reconstruction, fracture care, arthritis, hand and foot disorders, as well as work-related injuries. Additionally, the practice offers physical therapists and pain management professionals who provide a high standard of care from the operating room through recovery.

Orthopaedic Specialists is headquartered at 902 N. Howe Street in Southport, with additional physician offices and physical therapy facilities in Southport, Supply, Sunset Beach, Carolina Beach, and Leland at Waterford Medical Plaza.


Doing Good In The Community Leads To Doing Well In Business

Stephen DeBiasi, chief executive officer at OrthoWilmington, PA, shares with others on WilmingtonBiz.com the benefits of supporting charitable causes and educational programs in our community. Supporting charitable causes and educational programs in our community is not only the right thing to do; it’s a very smart business move.

When the corporate world does its part to build and maintain a thriving environment, employee recruitment and retention are positively affected. We all want to live in a region that offers quality educational options, excellent health and wellness programs, exciting athletic opportunities for participants and spectators, an active arts scene, and an overall sense of caring for those in need. If the business community does not support these vital components of a desirable region, we will find ourselves losing new enterprises and top-level talent to communities that do. We don’t hear much about private medical groups, so I thought I would share a bit about OrthoWilmington’s involvement. To read the complete article, please click here.


Dr. Frueh discusses knee arthritis treatment options, including outpatient knee surgery and partial knee replacement when appropriate, on a Cape Fear Business Break with Meghan Donohue


When non surgical treatment options for knee arthritis do not provide lasting relief, advances in technique and technology have made available new, less invasive surgical treatment options for knee pain. Advances in the anesthesia used can lessen post operative pain and speed return to activity. Experienced knee surgeons now perform replacement procedures using a less invasive technique which in turn results in less blood loss and muscle interruption which can improve recovery times.

In cases where arthritis is limited to one location, a partial knee replacement procedure may be an option.

Dr. Frueh has performed 700-800 knee and hip surgeries, over one-third of the procedures have been performed on an outpatient basis which means patients are able to go home the same day as their surgery to recover in comfort of their own home.
