Our Specialties & Services

Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is a major part of our practice at BCOS. Our sports medicine specialists are multiple year Top Doc honor recipients and have developed this dimension of our practice into a state-of-the-art programDr. Schwartz and Dr. Bowers routinely perform ACL reconstructions and cartilage surgery in the knee, and stabilization, decompression, and rotator cuff repairs in the shoulder. As a group, we are constantly learning and developing new techniques, keeping up with the latest in orthopaedic and sports medicine technology.

Joint Replacement

Our joint replacement specialists are fellowship-trained and board-certified with expertise in the replacement of the hip, knee, and shoulder joints. We employ 3D computer templating, robotic assistance, and if needed, custom implants to ensure a precise result.

General Orthopedics

While each of our physicians has completed subspecialty fellowship training, we take pride in taking care of the general orthopedic needs of all age groups in our community. We cover emergency room call at Virtua Memorial Hospital at all times. We aim to provide same day or next day appointments for acute fractures or time sensitive injuries.

Fracture Treatment

Many acute injuries, including ligament sprains, muscular strains, and low energy fractures can be primarily evaluated in our office the day of injury. Depending on your insurance, we can help you avoid the cost and exposure of emergency room or urgent care visits. We have on-site x-ray which can help you avoid a second co-pay or the time and hassle of traveling to multiple facilities. BCOS is able to pre-certify stat CT or MRI, and we have bracing, splinting, and casting at the ready. We preserve OR space daily for time-sensitive fractures requiring surgery.
