Richmond, Va., February 1, 2021 – OrthoVirginia announces that Sideline Orthopedics and Sports Medicine will join the practice effective today, Feb. 1, 2021.

OrthoVirginia is headquartered in Richmond and is the state’s largest provider of musculoskeletal care and therapy. It has offices in Richmond, Northern Virginia, Virginia Beach, and Lynchburg with more than 100 physicians and 28 office locations.

Sideline Orthopedics is headquartered in Blacksburg and specializes in the treatment of sports and work injuries, arthroscopy, fracture/trauma care, shoulder surgery, spine, knee replacement, hip replacement, and foot and ankle care.

“It’s an exciting time here at OrthoVirginia as we officially welcome Sideline Orthopedics to the OrthoVirginia team,” stated John Phipps, MD CEO of OrthoVirginia. “This merger obviously extends our geographic reach, but what it means for the care we can offer our patients goes beyond that. Adding their physicians to our team advances and enhances our ability to provide thorough, high quality, cost- effective care to our patients and communities throughout Virginia.”

“Joining with OrthoVirginia enables us to improve our independent practice and maintain focus on our patients,” said Bart Eastwood, D.O., president of Sideline Orthopedics. “Our community will continue to experience our affordable, high quality care but now have greater access to a larger group of extremely talented physicians and an array of pioneering technologies. Our patients can also be assured that no changes to our office locations or daily operations will be made.”
