Beacon Ortho is an independent practice that is not owned by a hospital system, offering people a truly different patient-centric experience.
You may have never heard of the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, but you’ve probably heard his words: “change is the only constant.” If the pandemic’s ups and downs have taught us anything, it has been that. We’ve also learned that staying the same doesn’t need to mean that we remain stagnant. We can grow and learn, but still be dependable and steady.
So even as things change, the professionals at Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine continue to offer the best in orthopaedic care to our friends and neighbors in southeastern Indiana. Competitors come and go, but after fifteen successful years, Beacon is still here. Doing what they do better than anyone. Whether treating joint pain, serving as athletic trainers at local high schools or treating injured weekend warriors, Beacon’s experienced one-on-one patient care is simply unmatched. That has not – and will not – change.
Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is an independent practice that is not owned by a hospital system, offering people a truly different patient-centric experience. The practice is here to stay and is entirely focused on patient care. A patient may have a similar injury to another, but each one is in a different situation. Those differences are what structure the one-on-one care plan developed for every patient.
The professionals at Beacon are on the cutting edge of treatments and technology, always leading the way to best benefit patients. People choose Beacon because they want the most current treatment options, provided by professionals dedicated to great patient care. They find those professionals and that dedication at now 26 Beacon locations throughout Ohio, Northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana.
While some providers are still performing common procedures the same way they have for decades, independent practices (like Beacon) are always learning and expanding. That growth allows the flexibility to offer new and advanced options, including some cutting-edge regenerative and restorative medical techniques that might include cartilage transplants, platelet rich plasma, and bone marrow cells to secure better outcomes for our patients. Beacon knows that adding to the arsenal of treatment options multiplies options to increase positive outcomes for patients.
“Because Beacon has a successful local history, our patients are our neighbors, friends and family,” said Dr. David Argo, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine. “Our community needs access not only to that traditional orthopaedic care but also to those advanced and innovative procedures being researched and developed every day.” That mixture of experience and forward-facing care helps patients return to fully work, sports and all the activities they enjoy. Beacon meaningfully offers both.
Beyond Beacon, Dr. Argo is the medical director for Lawrenceburg High School, East Central High School, and South Dearborn High School. Most of the Beacon medical professionals are also working with local student athletes in roles like this. Those relationships help the treatment and healing processes, if and when injuries occur. It is the difference when a care-provider knows you and your situation thoroughly. It won’t prevent injuries or strains.
To paraphrase old Heraclitus: change is inevitable. So we must be ready and change with it. It’s best to work with medical professionals who embrace learning new things. They are the care providers best able to continually put science into practice. That commitment to continually learning what is new and what works means that the care they provide just gets better. Success breeds success. And that is the Beacon difference: the cross-section of advanced medicine and local history and experience.
