JACKSON TWP. The Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center has opened a new center at 4466 Fulton Drive NW in Jackson Township. The new location is part of the organization’s plan for expanding throughout the region.


The orthopaedic, plastic and reconstructive clinic, which is the hospital’s first specialty clinic location in Stark County, opened on Sept. 16 and held a ribbon cutting and open house on Dec. 3.


“We serve a growing patient base in Stark County, so our new clinic in Canton is an ideal location for delivering nationally renowned orthopaedic, plastic and reconstructive care,” said Holli Cholley, RN, BSN, M.B.A., chief nursing and operations officer, in a press release. “Patients in Stark and surrounding counties will now have convenient access to world-class care right in their own backyard.”


Outpatient services at the new Canton clinic include assessment, treatment and post-surgical care for the entire range of orthopaedic conditions, whether due to injury, overuse or degenerative disorders. Plastic surgery services include assessment, treatment and post-surgical care for cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, as well as non-invasive cosmetic treatments for the skin, face and body.


The team of surgeons at the Jackson Township location has expertise in diverse specialty areas including total joint replacement of the hip, shoulder, ankle and knee; comprehensive care of the hand, wrist, and spine; sports medicine; pediatric orthopaedics, as well as plastic and reconstructive surgery.


“Our experienced and skilled surgeons provide the highest level of orthopaedic and reconstructive care,” said Cholley. “We are excited to bring this nationally renowned care to Stark County.”
