Our orthopedic care spectrum

We recognize the unpredictability of pain and the urgency of care, which is why we ensure you receive prompt attention. Our physicians are specialists—they focus on specific areas of the body. This began in their fellowship training and extends to their practice today. You are in great hands with any of our physicians.

Occupational medicine—Dr. Malak specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating injuries, illnesses, and harmful exposures in workers and can serve as an employer’s corporate medical director.
Sports medicine—Our physicians treat both athletes and non-athletes for injuries to the musculoskeletal system (your bones, muscles, and joints) without surgery.

Occupational Medicine

We understand the intricacies associated with injuries on the job, and we are here to serve the employer and employee with equal attention. We have a full-time occupational medicine physician available in all capacities.



From shoulder to toe, we specialize in injuries or illnesses that affect muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Including, but not limited to, conditions such as sprains, strains, fractures, hyperextensions, tendonitis, bursitis and arthritis.
