Dr. Cha's Approach

Dr. Cha has worked with athletes of all ages and skill levels for years.  He understands the importance of preventative care, which is why Dr. Cha supports youth, high school, college, professional, club, and rec teams in the local community.

Preventative care can help reduce the risk of common sports injuries such as concussions and ligament tears.  When accidents and anomalies occur, Dr. Cha prefers to see patients as quickly as possible.  This allows healing to begin sooner, and reduces an athlete’s propensity for additional injury or complications.

This high level of service and speed to treatment also allows peace of mind for the athlete and their family and coaches.  Beacon Orthopaedics was designed for athletes and provides imaging services (x-ray and MRI), durable medical equipment (DME), physical therapy, and an ambulatory surgery center on site.

This comprehensive offering of orthopaedic services allows athletes of all levels to be diagnosed, treated, and recover in a convenient and patient-centered environment.  Dr. Cha prioritizes personalized, comprehensive care for his patients to help them return to their sport or activity of choice quickly and without pain.

Although some patients require surgical intervention, Dr. Cha recommends starting with conservative treatments, like physical therapy, first.  In most cases, a diagnostic MRI will inform the recommended course of action.
