US Orthopaedic Partners acquires 23-physician practice

Alan Condon -  

Huntsville, Ala.-based SportsMed Orthopedic Surgery & Spine Center is the latest practice to join U.S. Orthopaedic Partners, a private equity-backed management services organization.

SportsMed has 23 physicians and operates its own imaging centers and physical and occupational therapy facilities. The acquisition means USOP now supports 89 physicians across 34 locations in Mississippi and Alabama.  

Sixty-three of those physicians are in Alabama, making USOP the largest network of orthopedists in the state, the company said in a May 23 news release.

"We have experienced incredible growth since our inception and are focused on expanding our services to satisfy increased patient demand while building out the full spectrum of musculoskeletal services," said Graham Young, vice president of mergers and acquisition for USOP. "There is no secret to our rapid success over the last 18 months. Our physician partners seek to align with other like-minded physicians."

USOP has acquired eight orthopedic practices since its inception in October 2020.
