That they lead with their humanity, warmth and humor will be the first thing you notice about six of Greater Cleveland’s most brilliant orthopaedic minds.
It’s a refreshing orientation that is predominant not just among NOMS Southwest Orthopaedics, but across the NOMS Healthcare culture.
When I spoke with the orthopaedic team, the conversation continually circled back to the entire patient experience and best outcomes based on deep passion for advanced practices and team collaboration.
“It’s an honor to have a patient place their trust in your care. Every day, we bring our countless combined years’ experience to play in affecting the best possible outcome and fastest recovery for our patients. It’s all very personal; we look at every patient as if they were our own mother, father, sister or son,” said, NOMS surgeon Blane McCoy. “Everything we do is patient-centered –right down to our new location,” added Dr. Larry Lika. The orthopaedists recently relocated from a nearby congested hospital-campus to a spacious, newly renovated facility at 6820 Ridge Rd. in Parma, to place themselves on an easily accessible, main thoroughfare.
Their well-honed craft includes the most advanced: arthroplasty and arthroscopy; total joint replacement including the anterior hip approach and reverse total shoulder replacement; knee reconstruction; hand and upper extremity surgery; cartilage and meniscal procedures; rotator cuff repair; hardware repair and removal; carpal tunnel release; injections and aspirations; chronic back pain treatment; fracture and tendon repair; nerve repair; arthritis care; sports medicine; and, physical therapy.
And that’s not all. The big dogs? They also have big hearts.
For each patient who mentions seeing this in Cleveland Magazine, they will donate to Northeast Ohio SPCA, a no-kill shelter in Parma.
