THE WOODLANDS, TX — Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s new location in Woodforest is a major asset for residents located within the area.

Address: 750 Fish Creek Thoroughfare
Montgomery, TX 77316
Phone: 936-272-0790

The practice has been a staple in the community for fifteen years, with offices in The Woodlands, Spring, and now Woodforest.

“It’s crazy to think that in 2005, I opened with seven total employees, myself included, and now we have three locations and over 100 employees,” said William Hayes MD, senior partner and founder of the practice.

“Our mission statement is just do the right thing, continue to do the right thing, and you'll be rewarded,” he said.

Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine offers:
• Sports Training - preparing athletes to perform their best
• Orthobiologics - PRP therapy
• Injections - cortisone or steroid injections
• Imaging - X-ray services in office as well as Alliance MRI conveniently located just down the hall at Woodforest location
• Bracing & Casting
• Pharmacy - located at the Spring location
• EMG/NCS - nerve conduction study that measures muscle responses

Their physical therapists use the latest techniques, including:
• Physical Therapy
• Dry Needling
• Occupational/Hand Therapy
• Aquatic Therapy
• Myofascial Release
• And Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill

“As physical therapists, we diagnosis movement disfunction,” said Phil Putignano, Director of Rehabilitation. “The goal is to find the impairments or things that might be causing you pain then provide you options to get relief; whether it be through mobilization, massage, exercise, aquatic therapy … all of those different modalities, to get you back to being better.”

In addition to being the first orthopaedic presence in the Woodforest area, Dr. Keith Johnson, who specialized in sports medicine, listed important items that set Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics apart:
• Along with orthopaedic care, all physicians are fellowship trained, meaning they've trained in a subspecialty such as knee replacements or shoulder arthroscopy. This makes them experts and leaders in their field.
• From the initial exam to post operative care, patients meet with their original physician throughout (other than in times of overflow). As opposed to subsequent visits with nurse practitioners and physician assistants, there is continuity with the MD primary physician.
• Same day visits mean injures can be seen the day that they happen.

Looking Forward:
The vision is to create a new medical center in Woodforest within the next 10 to 15 years, with Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine leading as the pioneer.

“This is a 50,000 square-foot building, this is phase one,” Dr. Johnson said. “There’ll be a 40,000 square-foot medical office building, phase two; then there's a third building, which will be about 15,000 square-feet, that’s phase three. We plan to also have a surgery center.”

“Our goal is to surround ourselves with like-minded healthcare providers,” Dr. Hayes stated. “We're interviewing primary care physicians, we're interviewing dentists and such, just to make sure that everyone is on the same page that this is about community … It’s exciting to be able to be first to market and grow.”

“We've created almost a jewel for the Woodforest community” Dr. Johnson noted. “A legacy of sorts, it’s something we’re very proud of.”
