Our practice is within the Baton Rouge Orthopaedic Clinic facility, which includes advanced technology and state of the art medial equipment and techniques to enhance the healing process. Our radiology equipment and staff are in-house which reduces the time you have to wait for a diagnosis. 

Even more important than that is the fact that we take the time to focus on your individual care needs. Your first orthopedic appointment will include a comprehensive medical history evaluation, diagnostic imaging (X-rays and/or MRI), and physical tests. From these, we design a treatment plan for you to help you heal as completely as possible, with surgery as a last resort if necessary.


Dr. Niels Linschoten takes his time with each patient to thoroughly address each of their concerns and to ensure accurate diagnoses and an effective treatment plan moving forward. Dr. Linschoten's office works as a team to provide the highest quality care.

In his heart, Dr. Linschoten sees his career as a physician as his calling to help people heal, and he really cares about each patient he meets.
