Overview

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile on vitals.com. I am an Orthopedic Surgeon with Unity Healthcare, complemented by 6 other Orthopedic Specialists and a Sports Medicine Physician. As an osteopathic physician and surgeon, my goal is to treat you like my own family and empower you to make educated decisions regarding your care. If you have suffered an injury, endured hip, knee, or shoulder pain, or just want to pursue a second opinion, please call (765) 447 4165 to make an appointment. To provide you with expert care, I pursued specialized fellowship training in sports medicine combined with primary and revision joint replacement surgery at Triangle Orthopaedic Associates, P.A. Through this experience, I was fortunate to gain further experience in the muscle sparing anterior approach total hip replacement and partial knee replacements utilizing minimally invasive approaches. Thank you in advance for entrusting me with your medical and surgical care, Joel Virkler, DO
