Kristin Nesbitt, M.D., F.A.C.S., is board certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and specializes in Hand and Upper Extremity Disorders.  Dr. Nesbitt is a firm believer in conservative care and makes use of physical therapy as a first step.

  When surgery is required, for most procedures she utilizes minimally invasive techniques that lead to an easier, faster recovery with an earlier return to work and activities.

James Steinberg, D.O., is board-certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and specializes in sports medicine. He has special interests in reconstructive procedures of the knee, including joint replacement surgery.  Dr. Steinberg is one of the few local orthopedic surgeons to perform Total Joint Replacement surgery as an outpatient procedure.  He is the lead of the joint replacement program at PSCF.

Matching a highly skilled anesthesiologist with expertise in performing blocks is his priority as this significantly reduces post operative pain after knee or hip replacement.
