St. Mark’s Medical Center’s Orthopedic Care Focus

La Grange, Texas – (April 25, 2018) – In an effort to meet the community’s need for quality orthopedic care, St. Mark’s Medical Center is proud to offer technologically advanced Orthopedic Services that extend from the La Grange, Texas hospital campus to Bastrop and Giddings locations.

“We are pleased to provide a full range of general orthopedic and sports medicine services for patients of all ages,” said Russell Clark, M.D., who is board-certified in Orthopedic Surgery and has specialized training and clinical skill in caring for shoulders, knees, hips and trauma/fractures. With more than four years at St. Mark’s, Dr. Clark maintains a full schedule of patient care at the St. Mark’s Orthopedics – La Grange Medical Office Building location, and continues to see patients in both Bastrop and Giddings on a rotational basis.

St. Mark’s Medical Center strives for a high standard of patient experience and quality care as orthopedic services grow to meet individual patient needs, ranging from tendinitis or arthritis management to joint replacement and a range of sports medicine issues.

In January 2018, Orthopedic Services welcomed the addition of Arush Angirasa, D.P.M., who cares for patients’ foot and ankle concerns, also providing surgery and foot reconstruction for advanced needs. In addition, St. Mark’s anticipates adding a physician specialist in sports medicine orthopedics and injuries later this year.

Patients can schedule an appointment for their orthopedic concerns by calling the Orthopedics – La Grange location, (979) 242-2387, where patients and family members will find dedicated physician providers and medical assistants ready to assist.
