How Tidewater Orthopaedics Helps Patients Get Back to What They Love


Sep 04, 2023

At Tidewater Orthopaedics, our orthopedic specialists are committed to helping patients regain mobility and return to the activities they are passionate about. Our providers utilize the latest techniques and treatments to get patients back to living life to the fullest.  

 From avid runners to devoted grandmothers, we understand how orthopedic conditions can limit mobility and keep people from participating in their favorite hobbies. That's why our expert team creates customized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs and goals.  

 Whether you love hitting the links for a round of golf, keeping up with your grandkids at the playground, or simply walking pain-free, our orthopedists will work diligently to help you achieve it. We offer cutting-edge nonsurgical treatments, minimally invasive procedures, injury-specific rehabilitation programs, and, when necessary, innovative orthopedic surgeries.  

For example, we recently treated a 73-year-old grandmother who had been experiencing worsening lower back pain and sciatica for five years. The pain had progressed to severely limiting her ability to perform daily activities and enjoy time with family. Dr. Jonathan Mason thoroughly evaluated her condition and determined she had spinal stenosis and facet cysts compressing her nerves. After exhausting conservative treatment options, she underwent decompression and fusion surgery. Dr. Mason carefully explained the procedure and addressed her concerns, helping ease her fears. Thanks to the successful surgery and thoughtful post-op care coordinated by our staff, she is now 6 months post-op and completely pain-free. She has regained her independence and can take long walks, care for her husband, and fully enjoy retirement again. Read more about this patient testimonial here. 

 We also invest and are committed to using the latest technology to help our patients return to activities they love. That's why we offer Mako SmartRoboticsTM for knee and hip replacements. Mako uses 3D CT-based planning so surgeons can create a personalized joint replacement plan tailored to your unique anatomy. This technology guides the surgeon during the procedure, helping to maximize accuracy and precision. This allows the surgeon to be more conservative in removing bone, helping preserve healthier bone. That's why our experienced surgeons like Dr. Colin Kingston, Dr. Loel Payne, and Dr. Michael Higgins worked to bring this innovative option to our state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center.  

 At Tidewater Orthopaedics, our top priority is getting you back to living life to the fullest. Let our experienced, caring providers help you return to all the activities you know and love. Call today to schedule your evaluation!
