Center for Orthopaedics Announces Expansion Project

Center for Orthopaedics will soon begin construction on additions and renovations to their Lake Charles office, located at 1747 Imperial Boulevard. The addition will add 5600 square feet to the facility’s current 34,500 square foot footprint. The main lobby will be expanded and 16 new exam rooms will be added to meet the group’s growing patient population. As part of the construction, 900 existing square feet are being renovated for a new C-arm imaging suite for musculoskeletal injections. Construction will begin within 30 days and will be completed by the end of the year.

The Lake Charles office has been open for less than three years, but the group has grown rapidly, from just four doctors in 2009, to 11 doctors today, making it the region’s largest, independent musculoskeletal group . The medical staff includes six orthopaedic surgeons, two physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, two foot and ankle specialists and one hand surgeon.
