First it started with a painful shoulder. Then came the bum knee. Soon after, he was treating people suffering with a degenerated hip and tennis elbow. After that, it didn’t take long for Dr. Brian Rosenberg to fill his days with bones and joints, sprains and strains, breaks and tears.

In nearly 10 years, Rosenberg Bone and Joint has patched and casted, replaced or repaired many a bone and joint at St. Luke’s Hospital. Since locating in Polk County in 2005, Dr. Rosenberg has steadily increased the number of procedures he performs at St. Luke’s Hospital in an area of active retirees and the era of Baby Boomers.

His progressive techniques and individualized patient care have helped to attract patients from across the region and neighboring states, and from several foreign countries.

With a goal to improve and reduce recovery time and post-op pain for his active-minded patients, Dr. Rosenberg has worked closely with St. Luke’s Hospital to create an excellent patient care team including a physician’s assistant and nurse navigator to work with dedicated perioperative, nursing and rehab staff to ensure his patients experience consistent outcomes, reduced hospital stays and a faster recovery.

With the constant flow of patients in and out of his office, it was obvious Dr. Rosenberg needed more space. When the large building at 89 W. Mills St. became vacant, it was a logical choice for Dr. Rosenberg’s new office space. Now renovations are complete and patients and staff are enjoying a spacious, high-tech office environment.

Another St. Luke’s department enjoying the renovations of the Mills Street building is the St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation.

The foundation also moved from the hospital campus to the impressive and comfortable office space with available meeting rooms.

Established in 1991, the St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, is a network of highly respected citizens who have joined together to raise funds for equipment and facility improvements, educational programs, and the foundation’s endowment.

The foundation has raised funds for patient room renovations, hospital beds, heart monitors, automated medication dispensing, central registration and emergency room waiting area and adding digital mammography to the radiology department.

The community is invited to see the newly renovated St. Luke’s Medical Building, which is the new home for Rosenberg Bone and Joint and the St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation at 89 West Mills Street in downtown Columbus on Wednesday, July 10, from 4 – 6 p.m. There will be tours, light refreshments and a chance to meet the staff.

Call 828-894-2408 or 828-894-2693 for more information.
