Orthopedic Care Opens at LVHN’s Health Center at Richland Township
Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) opened the Health Center at Richland Township on July 16 to better serve the residents of Richland Township, Quakertown and surrounding areas of Bucks County.
Beginning September 10, orthopedic care for adults will be offered at the health center. Eric Lebby, MD, a resident of the community, and John Klaman, PA-C, will begin seeing patients at LVPG Orthopedics and Sports Medicine–Richland Township. This practice will provide the community with improved access for a spectrum of orthopedic care, including joint pain, osteoarthritis, knee and hip concerns and general orthopedics.
Lebby, Chief, LVHN’s Division of Orthopedic Surgery, is board-certified in orthopedic surgery and fellowship-trained in adult reconstructive surgery with a focus on knee and hip replacements. For patients requiring surgery, Lebby performs surgeries nearby at LVHN–Tilghman in Allentown, the region’s only campus dedicated to orthopedic care.
