In June, four physicians with Adena Bone & Joint Center (ABJC) will begin delivering care at Adena’s new health center in Hillsboro, providing services in the areas of sports medicine; and hand, spine and orthopedic surgery.
“Adena has a longtime commitment in delivering close-to-home care for our patients in and near Highland County,” said ABJC Clinic Director Sandy Zickafoose. “Over the past 10 years, our sports medicine and orthopedic specialists have delivered safe, quality care, and advanced surgical procedures in sports arthroscopy and total joint replacement to patients in the region. With the recent opening of Adena-Hillsboro Health Center, we will continue to provide these important services to our patients, and also expand our services to include rehabilitation and care from the area’s top spine and hand specialists.”
Spine Surgeon Dr. James Fleming Jr. will see patients at Adena Hillsboro beginning June 16. Fleming is board-certified in orthopedic surgery, with concentration on spine and neck surgery and treatment. Fleming is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine in Cleveland. He performed his internship at University Hospitals in Cleveland, his residency at Cleveland Clinic, and his fellowship at Weill Medical College of Cornell University’s Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, N.Y.

Effective June 5, sports medicine physician Dr. Bradley Strauch will begin seeing patients in Adena’s Hillsboro facility, with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Brian Cohen seeing patients there effective June 28.
Cohen and Strauch have provided comprehensive orthopedic and sports medicine care for patients in Highland County for nearly 10 years. The duo will transfer care for their established patients in Highland County, with the ability to see new patients in Hillsboro as well.

The team also works closely with local school athletic trainers to provide quality care and treatment for student athletes.

These are physicians who know the community and the people they are here to help. By expanding our services within our new Hillsboro location, we can assure patients have a one-stop option for primary and specialty care in Highland County.”
