Introducing the NEW Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists


New physicians, advanced medical training and surgical procedures, and customer service initiatives have led Orthopedic Professional Association, in partnership with LRGHealthcare to update their name to Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists.

Following comprehensive research that included feedback from patients and community members, the name Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists was selected as best describing physicians highly skilled in traditional and groundbreaking surgical procedures, offering patients a broad scope of treatment options.

“We feel that the new name more accurately reflects the experience of our board certified and fellowship trained physicians,” said LRGHealthcare President & CEO Tom Clairmont. “We are fortunate that as top professionals in their field, who have worked in cities like Boston, our physicians have chosen to live and practice medicine in the Lakes and Three Rivers Regions of New Hampshire for the quality of life.”
