Welcome To ONE
Ortho NorthEast, founded in 1962, is the area’s premier orthopedic center. With our impressive roster of board-certified physicians, qualified medical employees and satellite clinics throughout the area, ONE is among the largest and most experienced specialty centers of any kind in northeast Indiana. To serve you better, we’ve divided our practice into orthopedic sub-specialty divisions. Although they’re housed together on the same campus, each division has a reputation for excellence that stands on its own.
Over the years, we’ve established an impressive track record of state-of-the-art orthopedic care and pioneering surgical techniques.
Today, we’re leading the way by being the first to offer new minimally-invasive procedures, such as eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion back surgery. And, as part of our full continuum of care, ONE has established the region’s only Cartilage Restoration Center, a center of excellence for advanced cartilage repair techniques. Our areas of expertise include:
- Neck and back pain
- Sports injuries
- Joint replacement surgery
- Spine surgery
- Bone and joint surgery
- Foot deformities
- Hand problems
- Fractures and sprains
- Work-related injuries
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Orthopedics is one of the most rapidly changing medical fields around the world. You can count on ONE to be on the leading edge, bringing the very best care to Fort Wayne, northeast Indiana and beyond.

Miscellaneous Health Topics
At Ortho NorthEast (“ONE”), we are committed to helping our patients make informed decisions. Using the links on this page, you can find information about appointments, billing, insurance, privacy and much more. The information contained here is meant as a general guideline. If you have concerns or questions regarding your account with ONE or about how services could be processed by your insurance company, please contact us at (260) 484-8551 or toll free at (800) 589-8551 so that we can give you advice that is customized to your personal circumstances.
Narcotic prescriptions will not be refilled after 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, nor will they be refilled on weekends. This policy is for the protection of our patients. The physician on call may not be as familiar with your medical history as is your primary ONE physician. An emergency room visit may be required to receive pain medication outside of normal office hours.
Before seeing one of our physicians, we recommend that you contact your insurance provider regarding coverage of services at Ortho NorthEast. Because so many variables exist with insurance plans, knowing your coverage will help insure that you are not left with avoidable out-of-pocket expenses.
If provided with accurate insurance information, we will submit a claim directly to your insurance company for processing. However, the responsibility for payment for services rendered rests directly with you. Patients are encouraged to verify that their claims are processed promptly. After a claim has been processed (or has failed to be processed), the remaining balance will be billed and payment is expected within 30 days.
It is important to realize that most insurance policies do not cover the full amount of physician charges. There often is a deductible and/or co-insurance amount due from the patient.
Notice of Financial Interest in Health Care Entity
Your treating physician and other physicians at Ortho NorthEast (“ONE”) is/are a part-owner(s) of TherapyONE, the Orthopaedic Hospital at Parkview North, LLC. and Kosciusko Community Hospital. The physicians believe these facilities may be an appropriate setting for your medical care. Nevertheless, the selection of a specific health care provider always rests with the patient, and you may choose to be referred to an alternate setting if you so desire.
Liability / Injury Cases
Ortho Northeast (“ONE”) does not accept liability insurance (such as car, business or home owners insurance), unless the patient is also covered by Medicare. Otherwise, all patients are required to utilize their standard health insurance coverage and complete paperwork to allow for the liability coverage to repay the health carrier at a later date.
Liability patients who have no health insurance should refer to our policies for uninsured patients.
If you advise us that your injury/illness is work related, we will obtain verification of this from your employer. You will be required to provide health insurance information as a back up in the event that your workers’ compensation claim is denied. Our workers’ compensation department is willing to help you with any and all questions you might have.
Our office provides care at reduced rates for patients who are low income and who cannot qualify for Medicaid. If needed, please contact our staff members who are trained to help patients through this process. For patients who are not applying for reduced-price care, a $250 deposit at check-in will be required for all offices services. Other services (such as surgery) will be paid at the time of service.
