Northern Inyo Associates Orthopedics

Comprehensive Care for Bone, Muscle & Joint Conditions

When you are suffering from aches, pains, and reduced mobility, the skilled Orthopedists at Northern Inyo Healthcare District are here to help. We take a holistic approach to care, focusing on the patient as a person rather than a specific symptom or condition. It is our ultimate goal to restore your mobility, minimize your pain, and improve your quality of life.

Our Orthopedists partner with patients to determine the best treatment plan for each person. Orthopedists are trained and experienced surgeons who are prepared to operate if necessary. However, this is considered a last-resort option, and our team always explores the least invasive treatments before considering surgery. We collaborate with on-site Physical and Occupational Therapists to ensure patients are connected the resources they need for holistic healing.

Richard Meredick, MD

Dr. Meredick hails from Northeast Pennsylvania. After completing his undergraduate education, he received his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine where he immediately found himself drawn to musculoskeletal medicine through which he could apply his passion for physics and biomechanics to the function of the human body.

In order to advance his surgical skills and gain extensive hands-on surgical training in Orthopedics, he completed his residency training at the Akron General Medical Center in Ohio where he focused on complex fracture care and total joint replacement.

He subsequently completed an extra year of fellowship training in Arthroscopic Surgery and Joint Reconstruction with a particular focus on the shoulder and knee.
