Our Orthopedic Services
State of the Art Environment
NOI has designed its facility to accommodate the entire spectrum of a patient’s orthopedic care. In addition to our sub-specialty trained physicians, we offer the latest technology with on-site digital x-ray and high definition MRI. For the convenience of our patients we also have physical therapy and a surgical center at our facility. Each physician has a dedicated support team to address the questions and concerns of patients. Even the acoustic environment throughout the facility features music and a sound masking system to ensure patient privacy and the confidential verbal exchange between staff and patients.
Orthopedic Specialty Hospital
The physicians of NOI have developed a unique partnership with Hoag Memorial Hospital to create a patient centered value based facility dedicated to the orthopedic patient, called Hoag Orthopedic Institute. This orthopedic speciality hospital is the first of it’s kind in the area. This facility, created for and dedicated to the orthopedic patient, specializes in the most advanced orthopedic surgery, total joint replacement surgery and spine surgery. Hoag Orthopedic Institute provides patients with one-on-one care with an Orthopedic Nurse Navigator. These Nurse Navigators stay with the patient throughout the course of treatment and serve as the patient’s advocate, communication hub, and clinical resource. Along with receiving care from a top-rated surgeon, patients are surrounded with a support staff specifically trained in orthopedic care. This expertise in orthopedics translates to better results and fewer complications.
Other Hospital Affiliations
All NOI physicians are on staff at Hoag Hospital. NOI physicians are very active in the Medical Staff organization, serving in various capacities in Hoag’s Orthopedic Department leadership and working cooperatively with the hospital to assure a high quality of care. Hoag Hospital was recently recognized by the independent research firm, Health Grades, as receiving 5 Five Star ratings in Orthopedic Services, making it the top program in the state of California.
Outpatient procedures are conducted at the Orthopedic Surgery Center (OSC). Located on-site at the Newport Beach location, OSC houses four state-of-the-art operating rooms, all fully equipped to utilize the advanced technology that supports the orthopedic expertise of NOI physicians. Located on the first floor of NOI’s facility, OSC offers a patient-friendly environment and high quality care to create a calming surgical experience for patients and their families. OSC is Medicare-certified and fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Technology For The Digital Age
NOI offers the latest in diagnostic imaging services on-site, as well as digital storage of patient information.
- State-of-the-art digital X-ray — Significantly faster and more accurate than traditional X-ray, superior digital images are acquired in less than 10 seconds and reduce the need for duplicate tests when images are unclear. Digital X-rays are electronically transmitted to a computer workstation in each exam room for review by the physician, eliminating delays.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) — Powered by High Definition technology, the scanner delivers extraordinary quality and detail to assist physicians in appropriate diagnoses. The system is extremely fast and quieter than most MRI scanners, providing a better, more comfortable experience for patients.
- Digital and filmless environment — By storing patient records and images electronically, NOI physicians can access medical records immediately during the visit, enhancing the time patients spend with their physician.
So impressive is the array of technology, NOI has been designated a GE show site for the latest in imaging systems.

Physician assistants (PAs) are health care professionals who are licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. As part of their comprehensive responsibilities, PAs conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions. Within the physician-PA relationship, physician assistants exercise autonomy in medical decision-making and provide a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. A PA’s practice may also include education, research and administrative services.
PAs are trained in intensive, accredited education programs. To maintain their national certification, PAs must log 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years and sit for a recertification every six years. NOI is pleased to work with these professionals on extending health care to the community:
- Justin Anderson, PA-C
- Ray Contino, PA-C
- Wendy Delgado, PA-C
- Megan Ellwanger, PA-C
- Eric Glassman, PA-C
- Kathy Rabago, PA-C
- Cecil Reyes, PA-C
Patients suffering from back or neck pain now have a comprehensive medical resource to help alleviate their discomfort. The Spine Center can help patients find relief from low back pain or neck pain that has lasted longer than 6 weeks.
At the Spine Center, patients can be evaluated and treated in one convenient location. The goal is to take a more holistic approach to relieving back and neck pain. The center is directed by physiatrists, medical doctors who specialize in the treatment of all neurologic and orthopedic disabilities, from traumatic brain injury to lower back pain.
Treatments available through the Spine Center include the administration of epidurals and pain injections, referrals for chiropractic evaluation and treatment, and physical therapy. Those patients who require surgery will be referred to specialists.
Patients who will benefit most from the services offered at Spine Center are those who have been treated conservatively with anti-inflammatories, home exercises and physical therapy but have seen limited improvement. The Center strives to use the latest accepted guidelines for the management of back and neck pain in order to enhance the quality of care and patient satisfaction.
We offer convenient locations in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, and Irvine to serve patients living or working along the Coast and Orange County.
