Watch Dr. Colyvas discuss specialities in orthopaedics, and what patients should look for in an orthopaedic doctor.








"My shoulder injury lasted for many years; I was unable to find a doctor who could provide the right level of care and insight that I require.  Dr. LaRoque and her team solved my shoulder injury in a way that inspired my trust and confidence.  She is super friendly, a great listener and an expert surgeon who meticulously laid out various options and procedures that made sense for me.  My road to recovery has been swift and without any surprises.  If I have any orthopedic issues or questions in the future, I will not hestitate to contact Dr. LaRoque and her staff.  I have yet to find another patient or even physical therapist who does not have the utmost respect for her skills."
