Desert Orthopedic Specialists

Jonathan Fox, M.D. and his team view Orthopedic pain and injuries as opportunities to transform a patient’s perspective from being sick to being well! We are here to help patients realize the potential the human body has to heal itself if given the proper nurturing, nutrition and modern orthopedic care. That’s why in addition to providing the most effective total joint and minimally invasive orthopedic surgical solutions, our practice also offers a comprehensive array of non-surgical and naturopathic evaluation and treatments.
Naturopathic Services
Avoiding surgery is often a high priority for many orthopedic patients. Conversely, some patients who do need surgery simply aren’t healthy enough to undergo the sometimes complex and lengthy procedures required for effective treatment. Desert Orthopedic Specialists’ naturopathic and restorative treatment options are designed to deliver health-enhancing and life-improving results that prepare patients for their surgery and potentially prevent them from needing surgery at all. Having a naturopath on the team at Desert Orthopedic Specialists helps us and our patients think outside of the box when it comes to their health and healing.

  • Sports Medicine & Injury
    Sports Medicine & Injury Treatments
    Orthopedic surgeons and specialists don’t just treat sports injuries that occur during competitive play or practices on a field. There are many “weekend warrior” sports injuries that effect active people while they run, hike, ski or participate in any other rigorous activities that have the potential to result in falls, abrasions or involve repetitive motions.
