One area that the city of Austin has always excelled in is its health and medical offerings. Therefore, a recent announcement from Austin Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is a fitting match with the health-conscious, athletic mentality of the residents of Austin.
According to a recent news release, the Austin Orthopedics and Sports Medicine facility has recently opened. The building, which houses 4,200 square feet of office space, is located a Post Oak Center North Building 1, 2200 Park Bend Drive, which is located just across the street from the already existing North Austin Medical Center.
The new facility is run by Kalin D. Kelso, M.D., who is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. Here, patients can receive total management of their care and take advantage of a full range of orthopedic services. These include sports medicine as well as onsite radiology and physical therapy. Dr. Kelso is a specialist in arthroscopic surgery as well as total joint replacement of the knee and of the shoulder.
“I’m going back to my roots – to why I originally entered into the practice,” said Dr. Kelso about his decision to leave his position as the director of sports medicine and chief of orthopedic at the Austin Diagnostic Clinic in order to open the Austin Orthopedics and Sports Medicine facility.
Since starting to practice in Austin seven years ago, Dr. Kelso has already been named Texas Monthly Super Doctor on three occasions. He is also the first to set up an office in the 29,724 square foot Class A medical office building created by Oaks Development Group. The building offers a unique ownership hybrid that is certain to attract more medical professionals.
“The Oaks’ investment model is a stable opportunity for physicians to build equity in their building without cash upfront” said the head of the Oaks’ Austin office, Eric Perardi. “That means the doctors have more money to put into technologies and services that benefit their patients.”
