Tradition. Trust. Talent. 

That’s what has set Greater Pittsburgh Orthopaedic Associates (GPOA) apart from all others in the field of orthopaedic care for decades and counting.

As the top orthopaedic doctors in the Pittsburgh area, our ultimate mission at GPOA is to provide comprehensive, compassionate orthopaedic care to patients in a wide variety of age groups. We use state-of-the-art technology to ensure that the treatment you receive from our orthopaedic specialists will always be effective and cutting-edge. 

Our approach aims to be as minimally-invasive as possible, often providing treatment that circumvents the need for surgery at all. When we determine that surgery is necessary, our orthopaedic specialists consistently apply new techniques to minimize invasiveness, cost, pain and recovery time. 

We also pride ourselves on having some of the most accessible offices across the greater Pittsburgh area. Within Pittsburgh city limits, patients can receive care at locations in Shadyside and South Side. Outside of Pittsburgh, our office locations provide orthopaedic services in Moon Township, Monroeville, Cranberry Township, Brackenridge, and Sewickley, PA.

As a private practice, it is our privilege to remove cost barriers and accept all major insurance plans across Pennsylvania. This includes insurance from both Highmark and UPMC Health Plan. Our orthopaedic specialists also benefit from hospital privileges at most local hospital facilities, including Allegheny Health Network, Heritage Valley Health System, and UPMC.

Whether it’s a result of an injury, a condition, or natural wear and tear, pain should never stop you from living your life the way you want to live it. If you’re ready to get back on your feet quickly and with long-lasting results, put your trust in the time-honored excellence we offer at GPOA.

  • This appointment was actually for Alex, my husband. We showed up early, by mistake, but they got him in and out in under 15 minutes. He was getting a shot in my knee. Dr. Evans did a great job.
