Dr. Richard Cimpl and Kelli Thomazin, PA-C of Columbus as well as sports medicine physician Dr. Dustin Volkmer work closely with primary care providers and surgery staff at Boone County Health Center. Podiatrist Dr. Brandon Borer is also available twice a month. He is able to treat a variety of foot conditions with and without surgery.

Patients who undergo shoulder, hip or knee replacement surgery receive follow-up physical therapy and occupational therapy while at the hospital and after discharge.

For patients considering an orthopedic procedure, there is an orthopedics care class offered. The class helps patients understand the complete process from start to finish when being scheduled for a joint replacement.
