While Dr. Hinton is in solo practice, our staff and facility are oriented toward personal attention to each and every patient. Providing the best care possible is essential for a quick and speedy recovery.


We care about our patients, and we want them to know it. When you call our office, you will speak to a person, not a machine. When you come in to the office, you will see the doctor, not a nurse practitioner. We want to make sure that your experience with Hinton Orthopedics is nothing short of exceptional.
