What Hurts? Beacon Orthopaedics Has the Cure

Beacon Orthopaedics is apart of the #FTMFamily.

You're running on N. Fort Thomas Avenue by Fort Thomas Central and decide that you want to take a look at where Moyer is planning on expanding when the state funding comes through. At the last second you decide you better head home towards Linden Avenue and make a quick turn at the intersection.

That was a bad idea. You twisted your knee and have to hobble home. This is just one example of how Beacon Orthopaedics can help you, the weekend warrior.

In fact, at their newly opened Northern Kentucky facility in Erlanger. Beacon has a specific program to help diagnose and prevent runner's injuries. "We have a treadmill with a slow motion camera that helps doctors analyze our patients' running form and determine if there are injuries we can help prevent," said Dr. Steve Hamilton, a Fort Thomas resident and orthopaedic surgeon at Beacon. "We watch you run and help determine if you're stride is off or where you are stepping that's causing the injury."


Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine physicians specialize in general orthopaedic surgery, total joint replacement, arthroscopic surgery, spine medicine and surgery and sports medicine. Beacon treats athletes and non-athletes of all ages, including children. And they have six convenient locations in the Greater Cincinnati area. 

Hamilton, is also a fellowship trainer for the youth mentoring program. (READ here where Fort Thomas Matters did a story on the Highlands A.P. Anatomy and Physiology trip to Beacon's lab in March). "Inspiring young people to learn and preparing them for their first step in the long road of a medical career is important," said Hamilton. "Beacon is all about community involvement and the fellowship and sports management program is a big part of that."

Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine plans to expand the office in Erlanger by 50 percent, which will result in 10 new jobs. The Erlanger office provides orthopedic and sports medicine evaluation and care, interventional pain management, imaging services, and physical therapy to residents of counties throughout Northern Kentucky."We had to increase the size of our office because so many people were relying on Beacon for orthopedic care," said Hamilton.

Their Northern Kentucky facility is open till 7 PM, M-F. In addition, they open early most days and even have appointments available on Saturday! A rare find in today's medical professional  environment.

Hamilton, who grew up on the westside of Cincinnati, recently stepped into parenthood with the birth of their baby girl.  "My wife and I moved to Fort Thomas after we opened up the Northern Kentucky facility," said Hamilton. "We just knew we wanted to raise a family here."
