Orthopedics is an area of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation of injuries and diseases within the musculoskeletal system. This system is made up of muscles and bones as well as joints, ligaments, and tendons.
Graham Health System’s orthopedic specialists are highly skilled surgeons who combine modern technology and compassionate care to offer quality orthopedic services close to home. Treatment plans are formulated with the patient including both surgical and nonsurgical means to provide pain relief and promote return to function. Our orthopedic surgeons offer advanced robotic assisted knee surgery as well as traditional surgery methods. Our orthopedic team Brett Barnhart, M.D., James Queenan III, D.O. and Anthony Scardina, PA-C offer you an individualized care plan to ensure the best outcome for you, our patient.
Reasons to visit our Board Certified Orthopedists:

We are excited to offer our patients robotic assisted knee arthroplasty (knee replacement). Getting a precise knee implant fit is important to your comfort and overall experience following surgery. Robotic technology uses data collected before and during surgery to inform your surgeon of many details related to your unique anatomy that may affect your implant fit. By using this data to make more informed decisions, your surgeon is able to plan for and carry out a personalized surgery based upon your individual needs.
Do I need a referral?
Referral requirements vary by insurance carrier. Patients are encouraged to call their insurance plan to verify requirements. If a referral is required, patients may need to call or make an appointment with their primary care provider. As a reminder, it is very beneficial to discuss any musculoskeletal symptoms or concerns with your primary care provider at your routine visits.
Do I need an x-ray before my appointment?
The need for an x-ray varies based on the reason for the appointment. When a referral or appointment request is received, the orthopedic team will determine the need for imaging. If imaging is performed prior to the appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists, additional views or repeat imaging may be necessary at the time of the appointment and varies by case.
What if I have had orthopedic care, treatments, or surgeries outside of Graham?
If patients have been evaluated and/or treated by another orthopedic surgeon outside of Graham, it is beneficial to obtain those records prior to your appointment including any imaging. If patients have had surgery for an orthopedic condition outside of Graham and are requesting a consultation for the same area/condition, additional review may be required prior to scheduling.
