Midlands Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery is proud that eleven of our physicians have been named 2023 Premier Physicians™. Doctors DaSilva, Fowble, Green (retired July 2023), Gross, James, Kirol, and O’Leary, have each spent decades treating patients in the Columbia area. To build on their legacies, Dr. Ulrich joined the practice in 2016, Dr. Bowman joined the practice in 2018, and Doctors (Walters) Lambeth and Francis joined in 2020. Our seasoned physicians have been honored to care for multiple generations of Midlands families, thereby cultivating meaningful relationships with patients that enhance the treatment process. Our new physicians are eagerly engaging the next generation.

Doctors DaSilva, Kirol, and O’Leary are sub-specialty trained in sports medicine with a particular interest in shoulders and knees. Dr. James is an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in treatment of the foot and ankle. Doctors Bowman and Green are orthopaedic surgeons with specialized training in the upper extremity, which includes hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, and shoulder. Doctors Fowble, Gross, and Ulrich are orthopaedic surgeons specializing in total joint replacement. Dr. Gross is a world-leader in hip resurfacing. Dr. Fowble also has expertise in hip resurfacing and anterior hip replacement, and Dr. Ulrich also has expertise in joint arthroplasty. Dr. (Walters) Lambeth is a pain specialist, while Dr. Francis specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

While these physicians believe in comprehensive non-surgical treatment whenever possible, they are well-equipped to provide surgical intervention as necessary. Advances in pain management, anesthesia, and surgical techniques have shifted the majority of orthopaedic surgeries and an increasing number of spine surgeries to outpatient settings, replacing once lengthy hospital stays with same day alternatives that yield high quality outcomes at a much lower cost.

All of the physicians at Midlands Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery are committed to offering innovative, high-quality care within the context of a private practice setting that promotes patient choice in the selection of healthcare providers while providing some of the most cost-effective, transparently priced treatment options in the Midlands.
