Collaborative care. Inspiring results.

In this unpredictable environment, a group of like-minded innovative caregivers across the country saw an opportunity. They became the five founding partners of the National Orthopaedic & Spine Alliance (NOSA): Cleveland Clinic, The CORE Institute, OrthoCalifornia, OrthoCarolina and Rothman Institute.
NOSA is a network of preeminent orthopaedic professionals who share a genuine dedication for providing the highest caliber of care. NOSA has pioneered a new model for orthopaedics – one that offers the best care and the best results at a predictable price for every procedure, including spinal surgeries and total shoulder, knee and hip replacements. With NOSA’s model, employers can control costs. With fewer complications, employees are back to work sooner. Orthopaedic care becomes predictable, in the best way possible.   Below is a little more about our founding partners:
