Our Boone office is moving

Appalachian Regional Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center, also known as AppOrtho, has moved from its current location on State Farm Road to 194 Doctors Drive in Boone, NC.

“The decision to move the practice was made to improve access for our patients,” said Robert Johnston, Vice President of Ambulatory Services and Clinical Integration at Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS). “The new space gives us the room we need to meet the demands of the local community.”


More providers, more choices

AppOrtho ProvidersStrategically located in the heart of the Boone Wellness District and across the street from the hospital, AppOrtho consists of three orthopedic surgeons, one family & sports medicine physician and three physician assistants who bring new expertise and advanced treatment technologies to the High Country. The “home team” providers specialize in arthroscopic orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, advanced knee and shoulder surgery, total joint replacements (hip, knee, and shoulder) and hand surgery, as well as many minimally invasive techniques.

Since 2013, AppOrtho has proudly served as the official sports medicine provider for Appalachian State athletics. In addition to providing sports medicine coverage for App State athletics, AppOrtho offers same-day appointments and is the only orthopedic practice in the High Country that performs surgeries at Watauga Medical Center.

“Our goal is to provide the best patient care and the best patient experience in a healing environment close to home,” Johnston continued. “AppOrtho works closely with Watauga Medical Center, The Rehabilitation Center, Paul H. Broyhill Wellness Center, and The Foley Center at Chestnut Ridge to make it easier for patients to get the care they need, right here in our community.”
