Columbia Orthopaedic Group adds podiatry practice

Practice Management

Columbia (Mo.) Orthopaedic Group added podiatry on Jan. 1 when Robert "Scott" Foster, DPM, joined the practice.

The merger with Dr. Foster's practice expands Columbia Orthopaedic Group's musculoskeletal platform and footprint.

"Merging Columbia Podiatry into Columbia Orthopaedic Group was quite easy as our values and commitment to high quality care aligned so easily," said Andrew Lovewell, CEO of Columbia Orthopaedic Group. "Both practices embrace and promote patient-centered musculoskeletal care and believe in delivering the highest quality of care in the market, so there were no challenges."

Dr. Foster has practiced medicine for more than 35 years and opened multiple clinics during that time. Columbia Orthopaedic Group now has 27 physicians providing comprehensive orthopedic and sports medicine care. The practice also has a surgery center and pharmacy, and Mr. Lovewell sees more opportunities for growth in the future.

"Columbia Orthopaedic Group will look to continue expanding its MSK/orthopedic platform by increasing patient access, broadening patient treatment options and continuing to deliver excellent care to all patients that we serve," he said.
