At OSMC, we take your health seriously. Our goal is to get you the orthopedic care you need, when and where you need it. We offer same-day and convenient telehealth appointments, and our walk-in clinics are available for urgent orthopedic needs – no appointment or referral necessary!
We treat patients with the simplest to the most complex medical needs – from ankle sprains to hip replacement surgery. At our six convenient locations, you can receive physician care, diagnostics, physical therapy, pain management, osteoporosis screenings, as well as care for sports or on-the-job injuries. We even have our own outpatient surgery center for a seamless, hassle-free patient experience.
It is the mission of OSMC to provide outstanding musculoskeletal care to patients and communities where we live and serve.
We chose our mission statement carefully. The above statement helps illustrate that we really listen to and serve our patients – and that we’re integral members of the community you live in. When you get your orthopedic care and physical therapy at OSMC, you are served by healthcare professionals who are your friends and neighbors.

- Teamwork – Everyone works toward the same shared goals.
- Quality – We strive for excellence in all that we do.
In 1973, we established our first office in Elkhart, Indiana. It was called Orthopedic Surgeons of Elkhart, and it was founded by Drs. Durham, Echeverria, and Papadopoulas. That original location was just down the street from our current Elkhart location at 2310 California Road.
Within the next 20 years, we began expanding our service to the Wakarusa and Nappanee communities – as well as adding to the already robust roster of orthopedic services we offer. For example, in 1992, we added physical therapy, with pain management not far behind in 1999, shortly after our surgery center was completed. Our MRI machine was installed in 2004. Podiatry services were added in 2008.
Our expansion continued with the opening of our additional offices: in Nappanee and Goshen in 2006, and in Middlebury in 2008. We added an office at the Elkhart Health and Aquatics Center in 2019 and the walk-in clinic at that location the following year. Most recently, we opened a wonderful location offering appointments and a walk-in-clinic in the Granger-Mishawaka area in October of 2021.
