Daphne, AL (September 11, 2020) — Daphne, Al-based, Baldwin Bone & Joint is excited to announce the opening of its new Osteo Health Clinic, a comprehensive, patient-centered care facility to help clients develop and maintain optimal bone health. Under the leadership of Clinic Coordinator Holly Scott, CRNP, the Osteo Health Clinic specializes in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and other related bone conditions.

Our goal is to be proactive advocates for our patients by utilizing our skills and knowledge to lower their risks for bone loss, fractures, and other health issues. We provide each patient with a personalized treatment plan and preventive care to put them on the path to better bone health, ultimately keeping them in the game of a healthy and active life.”

Long-term Mobile, Al-based Orthopaedic Specialist Moves Practice to Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C.
DAPHNE, AL (June 26, 2020) – The physicians and staff of Baldwin Bone & Joint are pleased to announce the association of fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. William I. Park, IV, FAAOS.
Park brings to new and current patients of Baldwin Bone & Joint more than 20 years of experience and fellowship-training in treating complex, lower extremity issues whether congenital, degenerative or traumatic. With a wide range of experience and skills, Park additionally treats everything from bunions and hammertoes to tendon reconstructions, ankle and foot arthritis and trauma to arthroscopic knee surgeries and knee replacements.
“The most important lesson I have learned is that orthopaedic issues must be managed within the context of each patient as an individual,” says Park. “That is why I will spend the necessary time with each and every patient determining the correct diagnosis and maximizing conservative treatment while being fully proficient in state-of-the-art arthroscopic, minimally invasive, and complex reconstructive techniques that may be required to speed along that patient’s recovery, optimize their function and return them to a healthy, active lifestyle.”
Park completed both his medical residency and fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery at the University of Tennessee’s renowned Campbell Clinic in Memphis, TN. He is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Through his more than two decades of orthopaedic practice, he has become adept at treating patients of all ages, and activity levels from children to weekend warriors to competitive athletes.
After spending his formative years in Mobile, Al, Park received his undergraduate degree in zoology from Duke University to maximize his exposure to anatomy and biomechanics which transitioned into his passion for orthopaedics. He then completed medical school at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 1997. His fellowship-training in foot and ankle surgery took place at the Campbell Clinic, Memphis, TN.
Park comes to the Baldwin Bone & Joint team of fellowship-trained othopaedic specialists following over 20 years of practice based in Mobile, AL. Park will continue to see patients from Mobile and Baldwin Counties as well as surrounding communities, at Baldwin Bone & Joint’s Daphne, Al office.
Appointments with Park may be scheduled by calling 251.625.2663 or visiting baldwinboneandjoint.com.
To all our patients and their families, please know your health and well-being continue to be our top priority. The physicians and staff of Baldwin Bone & Joint remain committed to taking extra precautions during this historic COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak as we continue the gradual process of easing restrictions and lifting the State’s “stay at home” order. Please take a moment to read helpful information below to keep in mind as you prepare for your next visit with us.
Screening patients who may be at risk for COVID-19 (Coronavirus): All patients will be screened for COVID-19 exposure. Our automated pre-registration system will guide each patient through a series of questions that will help identify those risks. Patients with COVID-19 symptoms may be asked to reschedule their appointment as a remote telehealth visit.
Curbside check-in: To maintain additional social distancing, patients can now choose to “skip the lobby” and wait in their vehicle until called back to their exam room. Upon arrival in our parking lot, patients may simply call our front desk (625-2663) and one of our associates will provide instruction.
Telemedicine visits: In many instances, our physicians can serve the needs of patients remotely, using live audio and/or video. Those who choose this option will still receive the world-class care Baldwin Bone & Joint is known for. When scheduling an appointment, please ask an associate if interested in telehealth services.
Available masks for patients and guests: Consistent with Alabama Department of Health guidelines, face coverings are recommended but not required. Patients and guests are welcome to arrive with their own masks or we can provide a disposable mask.
One guest per patient appointment allowed. We ask our patients to limit their appointments to a maximum of one additional person.
Hand sanitizer and wipes available in our lobby and exam room areas. We continue to maintain the highest level of cleanliness and disinfection throughout all our clinic locations. Our lobby areas and exam rooms are adequately stocked with the supplies necessary for our patients and guests to maintain proper hygiene (hand sanitizer, wipes, gloves, tissue, etc.).
This continues to be an uncertain time for all of us but know that Baldwin Bone & Joint remains committed to your health. Until this crisis has passed (and it will pass), our staff remains committed to striving to maintain the same friendly, professional and safe environment you have come to rely upon.
DAPHNE, AL (April 10, 2020) – The continued spread of COVID-19 has called on everyone—and especially the healthcare system—to quickly adapt. Many hospitals have postponed elective surgeries to be rescheduled later as they deal with the current crisis. Elective surgeries are surgeries that are not life-threatening and can be scheduled in advance. The patient chooses to have the surgery to better his or her quality of life. Many orthopaedic surgeries fall under this category even though the underlying conditions can be very serious and the discomfort to the patient can be significant.
What can a patient do when his or her surgery is postponed due to COVID-19 safety measures? Though many orthopaedic conditions are not life-threatening, they can be painful and restrict your movement. Here’s some helpful advice on how patients can alleviate their pain while they wait for surgery.
- For certain sports injuries, you’ll want to participate in a physical therapy program to maintain strength and range of motion as you await your surgery.
- For knee injuries, you may need to minimize movements that use your knee, such as jumping and running—and also consider using additional knee support in some cases.
Due to Increased Need for Patient Safety, Orthopaedic Physicians Respond with Real-time Video Appointments for Patients
Daphne, AL (April 6, 2020) – This is an unprecedented era in medicine, and while COVID-19 (Coronavirus) requires everyone to take extra precautions to remain safe, the health and well-being of our patients is still top priority for Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C. The physicians of Baldwin Bone & Joint are now available to their patients through a secure Telehealth app (IM Your Doc) – similar to a FaceTime call.
With this tool, patients can connect with the team of orthopaedic specialists using real-time video, allowing them to service their individual orthopaedic needs while offering maximum protection for health information.
