The Physicians and staff at Pinnacle Orthopedics are proud to announce the relocation and opening of the new medical clinic in the Pinnacle Medical Center building located at 1200 Pinnacle Parkway, Covington, LA.  The facility is a state of the art medical complex containing Pinnacle Orthopedics, Pinnacle Sports Medicine, Pinnacle Physical Therapy, OrthoCare NOW, D1 Northshore Sports Training, and Premier MRI 4U Medical Imaging. With such a diverse group of medical providers and highly trained staff in one location, it was necessary to create the Pinnacle Medical Network to oversee and coordinate the efforts of the medical center.

When the physicians of Pinnacle Orthopedics envisioned a fully integrated center of care to meet the needs of their patients in one central location, they relied heavily upon the feedback from their patients and partners in the healthcare community. From this collaboration came the realization that expanded services were necessary to further meet the needs of the community. Therefore, OrthoCare NOW was created to see and treat non-emergency, walk-in Bone and Joint injuries. All too often, access to an Orthopedic Specialist took several days. Now, no appointment is needed for Bone and Joint injuries as well as any new referral patients to the clinic. The OrthoCare NOW Fast-Track Access concept is new to the Northshore and will serve the community well to meet their orthopedic needs.

The Pinnacle Physical Therapy team comprised of Greg Zelden, PT, Chase Dwight, DPT, and Shawn Skinner, PT is in full swing seeing patients and providing the same great level of care relied upon by so many in the community. The larger facility with additional equipment and expanded services creates one of the most diverse Physical Therapy clinics on the Northshore. "We are proud to provide this great level of care to all of our patients" says Greg Zelden, PT, and Director of Physical Therapy Services.

Building upon the growing trend of integrating Physical Therapy services and Athletic Sport Performance Training, we are proud to have D1 Northshore Sports Training. This collaboration creates a full scale treatment and training system to help many people meet health, fitness, and training needs.  Jason De Melo, D1 Facility Director and Head Trainer brings his team of highly skilled fitness trainers to utilize state of the art strength training equipment and performance techniques combined with a large outdoor athletic field to help athletes maximize the potential of their performance.

Finally, Premier MRI 4U Medical Imaging will be located in the Pinnacle Medical Center building with their new High Field Open MRI which comes with an unobstructed viewing angle and the industry’s most accommodating patient table; no other MRI system of its type enables the physician to capture such detailed images.  Patients can be confident that our technology will accommodate your needs and provide the best details by offering unmatched patient comfort and clinical results.

We are excited, proud, and honored to be able to offer such a high level of services to our patients here at Pinnacle Orthopedics. There is no greater privilege than to be your Orthopedic Services provider of choice.
