Orthopaedic

Samaritan Medical Center and the North Country Orthopeadic Group offer comprehensive Orthopaedic care for our area. An orthopaedic surgeon diagnoses and treats diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, including the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, spine and nerves.
