Please use the links below to learn more about our ancillary orthopedic services that are available to you. 

Digital X-Ray

Digital X-ray is used to diagnose conditions by taking pictures of the inside of the body, and it may be requested that you have them done by your orthopedic surgeon. At Orthopedic Associates, we offer a digital X-ray (digital radiology), a type of X-ray imaging where advanced digital X-ray sensors are used in place of traditional photographic film. 

Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

There are times when an orthopedic injury or condition may necessitate the use of durable medical equipment, or DME, to ensure a fast and effective recovery.


At Orthopedic Associates, we understand that acute orthopedic injuries require immediate treatment. That’s why we offer our Injury Access Clinic at our Main Office in St. Louis on Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., and on Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., so when you sustain an injury you can receive the expert orthopedic care you need as soon as you need it. 


The quality of your MRI images is every bit as important as the expertise and care of the professionals performing the tests and assessing your injury or condition, which is why our high-field MRI at the Des Peres Square Imaging Center at Orthopedic Associates provides very detailed images, especially of soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a treatment method you may need if an orthopedic injury or condition is causing you pain or is making it difficult for you to move or complete everyday tasks. As such, the goal of physical therapy is to make movement and activity easier, reduce your pain, restore muscular function and strength, and help you return to your preinjury activities, work, and recreation.
