OrthoVirginia and Advanced Orthopaedics have announced that their practices have merged effective July 1, 2016. OrthoVirginia has practices in Lynchburg, Richmond and northern Virginia; Advanced Orthopaedics has practices throughout Richmond. “By sharing resources we can offer patients the best of both organizations and can more readily stay abreast of the newest technology in an ever-changing field,” explains Kenneth R. Zaslav, M.D. of Advanced Orthopaedics. “Patients will still have access to our trained sub-specialists who focus on a particular area of orthopaedics, while now also having the convenience of seeing experienced orthopaedic physicians at more locations.” Anthony J. Shaia, M.D. of OrthoVirginia stated that “this merger is excellent news for both of our organizations, and is good for our patients. As our growth continues, our ability to deliver the best possible orthopaedic care in Virginia in the face of a rapidly changing healthcare environment is stronger than ever.” With this merger, OrthoVirginia and Advanced Orthopaedics come together offering the area over 100 physicians with office locations throughout Richmond, central and northern Virginia and Lynchburg.
