Welcome to

Hendricks Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

M-F: 8am to 5pm

Our Practice

Our orthopedics and sports medicine physicians are devoted to the diagnosis, management, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves that allow you to move, work and be active.

Who We Treat

If you aren’t a serious athlete don’t let the term “sports medicine” deter you. Dr. Waits and Dr. Ritter treat athletes and non-athletes alike. “What I love about sports medicine and orthopedics,” says Dr. Ritter, “is the patients and the variety of care we can provide. Orthopedic patients tend to be extremely motivated to regain their quality of life. People who are dealing with an injury or chronic condition that hinders their ability to move and do the things they love want something better in life. That enthusiasm is inspiring.”

Patients often seek the services of our physicians for injuries from a recent fall or accident, repetitive overuse injuries from daily tasks or sports, progressive pain from arthritis, or simply everyday aches and pains that don’t go away.
“We all have activities that we want to be able to do but sometimes pain or soreness gets in the way,” said Dr. Waits.”The things we do in our practice can help people get back to their normal routines.”

Regardless of your age, fitness level or cause of your pain, you will receive individualized care to help restore your quality of life. Our regular hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm. To make an appointment, call (317) 718-4676.
