Joseph McCormick, MD

"I believe that successful treatment is the direct result of a successful partnership between each person and the orthopedic team."


Personal Care Philosophy

"As an orthopedic surgeon, I can help people relieve painful conditions by providing them with excellent surgical and non-surgical orthopedic care.

"I take time to talk to each person. I want to find out what they cannot do now and what they want to be able to do in the future. Then we determine the next best step in the treatment plan.

"Orthopedic solutions require a team approach. The Affinity orthopedic team provides high-quality treatment. When this is combined with the patient’s diligence to follow personalized care instructions, we see the best outcomes.”

The Reason I Choose Medicine

"I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in biology and chemistry, but it was during a summer break while in college, that I considered becoming a doctor.

"Playing ball that summer, I met an emergency room doctor who took an interest in me. As I watched him care for others, I knew I wanted to make that kind of difference in people's lives.

"Having a mentor who believed in me during college and medical school was very impactful. It has become part of my life philosophy to be involved in the lives of young people in the same way."

Clinical Interests

"One of the most rewarding aspects of orthopedics is the ability to see the changes care can make in a person's life. I get to see it; my assistant sees it; my nurse sees it, and the front desk sees it. We feel privileged to play a role in that journey from start to finish."
