U.S. Orthopaedic Partners, a private equity-backed management services organization, has acquired Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists of Mississippi, its fifth practice in the state and ninth in total.
The platform now supports more than 170 providers across 39 locations in Alabama and Mississippi. Ninety-six of those providers are in Mississippi, making USOP the largest network of orthopedic providers in the state, according to an Aug. 17 news release.
"There is no secret to our platform's success; our physician partners actively seek to align with other like-minded physicians," Glen Silverman, CEO of USOP, said in the release. "We have experienced strong targeted growth since our inception and will continue to stay focused on expanding our footprint with groups like Bienville that are top in class and align perfectly with the USOP platform."
Founded in 1981, Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists has grown to 32 providers with 5 locations across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The group comprises 17 physicians and 15 physician extenders, offering full-service orthopedic care in the specialties of spine, joint replacement, hand and wrist, shoulder and elbow, foot and ankle, sports medicine and pain management. Bienville said it is South Mississippi's leader in robotic surgery of the spine, hip and knee.
"Our dedicated staff work hard to ensure our patients have a great experience with a focus on personalized care," said Will Brancamp, CEO of Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists. "Adding the support from the USOP platform will only further allow our doctors to focus on high-quality, trusted care while maintaining the latest technological advancements that our patients deserve and have come to expect."
