Fitted Orthopedic Devices Improve Quality of Life

With orthopedic devices, one size fits all just doesnt work, RVP takes a fitted approach to  ensure the best possible outcome. Our orthopedic devices are custom fit to your body. Because of this practice, patients realize shortened rehabilitation requirements, improved mobility and increased use of the surgically repaired limb.

Orthopedic Patient Navigator

The care for broken bones and sports injuries touches many different departments within the health system. In order to improve the patient experience, we now have a patient navigator who acts as the support coordinator for all aspects of orthopedic and sports medicine patients' movement through the health care system. The navigator's role is to promote a smooth and timely continuity of care plan all the way through to recovery. The navigator will make initial contact with the patient at the time of diagnosis and continue through rehabilitation. To contact the navigator, call 330-383-2299.

Continuity of Care


The office for Orthopedic and Sports Medicine care is located in close proximity to the Emergency Department. Patients can receive their x-rays or scans, and meet with an orthopedic specialist to determine the best course of action for treatment. Our patient navigator can schedule therapy and home health care based upon your specific needs.
