Lincoln (Neb.) Orthopaedic Center and Nebraska Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine, also in Lincoln, have kicked off the new year as a merged entity.

OrthoBethesda (Md.) partnered with Washington Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in Washington, D.C., to form a 27-physician group.

Brentwood, Tenn.-based 7 Springs Orthopedics acquired Hendersonville, Tenn.-based Sport Ortho Urgent Care.



U.S. Orthopaedic Partners acquired Montgomery, Ala.-based Southern Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Kentuckiana Foot & Ankle Sports Medicine in Louisville, Ky., is partnering with practice management group Podiatry Growth Partners.

Spire Orthopedic Partners, a management services organization, added two practices in its first 2022 deal.

Dallas-based Novum Orthopedic Partners formed a new orthopedic management platform, partnering with three practices.
