Cambridge Health Alliance Opens New Malden Bone and Joint Center
Posted Date: 6/6/2011

Malden, MA...People suffering from assorted aches and pains now have a new place to get expert care. On May 23rd, Cambridge Health Alliance opened the new CHA Malden Bone and Joint Center, located at 195 Canal Street. The center, co-located with CHA's Malden Family Medicine Center, features board certified orthopaedic physicians and other highly skilled providers who will provide a variety of services.

CHA's orthopaedics team diagnoses and treats injuries and conditions that affect the bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and joints. This includes everything from evaluating strains and splinting broken bones to doing complex reconstructive surgeries after an accident. Physicians at the center include experienced surgeons William Lipman, MD, and Eric Launer, MD, who has advanced training in arthroscopic surgery. They are joined by physiatrist Anatoly Shalnov, MD, an expert in non-surgical treatments, along with a group of physician assistants and physical therapists.

Because the CHA Malden Bone and Joint Center is co-located with a thriving family medicine practice, patients will be able to access a wide range of orthopaedics, sports medicine, radiology, rehabilitation, and primary care services all under one roof. To make an appointment, please call 617-665-1566.
