New London Area Residents Do Not Have to Travel Far for Orthopedic Care

ThedaCare Orthopedics Plus team

ThedaCare Orthopedics Plus in New London has all the services a patient needs for quality, local care.

The practice recently welcomed John Lindstrom, MD, an orthopedic physician/surgeon. He shares the practice with Terry Dietrich, MD, orthopedic surgeon, and Rick Canlas, MD, musculoskeletal and sports medicine physician. Also in the office, located in New London Family Medical Center, are Teasha Kaepernick, physician assistant, and Kim Kandler, licensed athletic trainer.

Dr. Canlas said having all the services under one roof and locally is a benefit to patients. “You don’t have to travel far for the very best care when musculoskeletal and sports conditions make it hard to live a full life,” said Dr. Canlas. “We provide excellent care for these problems right here in New London.

“I’m dedicated to providing comprehensive and quality care to the non-athlete (or ‘the average Joe’), athlete (all abilities and levels), and industrial athlete (or workers compensation) to help maximize function and minimize disability and time away from daily living, school, sport or work,” added Dr. Canlas.

Dr. Lindstrom, who began in July, said the team gives a presence in New London, adding to the quality of care already available locally. “This is a renewed presence for orthopedics in New London,” he said. “The folks in the New London area are very fortunate to have that choice and that opportunity.”
