Where Does It Hurt?

Assured Orthopedics of Kentucky specializes in a variety of clinical, diagnostic, surgical and therapeautic service including:

Elbow & Shoulder Care

Elbow & Shoulder

Shoulder pain and injuries are extremely common – whether due to exercise, age, overuse injuries or trauma. In fact, they account for nearly 20 percent of visits to the doctor’s office. When shoulder pain interferes with your ability to do the things you need to each day, it’s time to seek medical advice.

Knee Care


When the pain is limiting your ability to perform normal daily activities or the ability to do the things you love, it’s time to seek medical advice. This can be due to an athletic injury or just natural wear and tear.

Hip Care


Common hip problems include: arthritis, bursitis, and sciatica. We can diagnose the cause and recommend the appropriate treatment. 

Spinal Care


When the pain is limiting your ability to perform activities of daily living for the things you love, it’s time to seek medical advice. This can be due to a traumatic injury or just natural wear and tear in your every day life.

Wrist & Hand Care

Wrist & Hand

With how much we rely on our hands, there’s no wonder hand and wrist pain can be so disabling and frustrating. When this pain interferes with typing on your computer, spending time on your hobbies or even getting yourself ready in the morning, it’s time to seek medical advice.

Foot & Ankle Care

Foot & Ankle

The average person will walk the equivalent of four times around the world in his or her lifetime. So it’s hardly surprising that nearly three-quarters of Americans will eventually experience some type of foot or ankle problem.

Patient Reviews

“I was seeking treatment for an injury that wasn’t healing properly. Dr. Heilig’s thorough evaluation and treatment plan led me to a full recovery.”

Jen Goodman

“I am very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Heilig.  In 2016 he did total hip replacement on my right hip.  It is now 2019 and I have still have had no pain or problems since having surgery.  He was very friendly, professional and addressed each step in my treatment along the way. Looking forward to Dr. Heilig doing my knee replacement in the near future. I recommend him to anyone looking for an Orthopedic Doctor/Surgeon.”

Teresa Davis
