What We Offer

Healing for a better world.

ARTHRITIS

The pain of arthritis can be debilitating. When that pain is combined with restricted mobility, arthritis can impair your daily activities, making the condition downright disabling.

ELBOW & KNEE

Your elbows and knees are complex and compact hinge joints. Proper functioning of both are necessary to move your legs and arms, allowing you to move and interact with the world around you on a daily basis.

FOOT & ANKLE

Taking care of your feet is paramount to being able to lead an active, fulfilling life. After all, if your feet are not healthy, it can prevent you from walking, working, and engaging in physical activities

HAND & WRIST

You may be surprised to learn about the orthopedic conditions that can affect your wrist and hand. These problems are quite common because of the large number of bones

JOINT REPLACEMENT

Sometimes, the best way to eliminate your joint pain and restore your mobility is with surgery. Ask your Movement Orthopedics provider if you are a good candidate for a surgical approach to either preserve or replace a problematic joint.

SHOULDER & HIP

Your hips and shoulders absorb a lot of impact as you move around and use your body. Each of these joints is a true powerhouse, providing you stability and balance while allowing an amazing range of motion.

SPORTS MEDICINE

No matter how careful you are on the field or how often you train, it’s likely you will experience an acute or chronic sports injury at some point in time. When that happens, you need the best care possible for a proper diagnosis and treatment aimed at a quick recovery.

TRAUMA AND FRACTURES

Although your bones have some flexibility, when excessive force is placed on a bone, it can break. This is called a fracture. Bones can break partially or completely, and in any number of ways. When a broken bone pierces the skin, it is called an open fracture.

Patients Story

Loved by our Patients

Lauren Bowers Patients

I went in for a knee sports injury, and Dr. Jeffrey Carroll was beyond amazing. I’ve dislocated my knee in the past, and the service at a different place was nothing compared to here. I would recommend Movement Orthopedics 10/10 every time.”

Gina Bednarski Patients

I fell and ended up with a pilon fracture. Dr. Carroll did an amazing job with my surgery! I have been following up a lot with Jeff the NP, and I can't say enough good things about him. He's so sincere! The entire staff is so friendly and courteous.”

Angela Lucido Patients

“Dr. Benenati is a very good foot doctor. He is always very caring and careful when working on the feet, and he’s very personable. I’ve taken my mom to many other foot doctors before we met him. My brother, sister, and I all go to him now.

Eileen Patients

I took a family member to see Dr. Benenati. He is the best foot doctor that I have ever been to! Very personable and takes the time to explain everything and also to listen if you have any questions at all. All of his attention is focused on the patient.
