After operating the only orthopedic practice in Fauquier County, Va., for more than 40 years, Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center in Warrenton will soon face competition, the Fauquier Times reports.

Precision Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, a 25-physician group with 13 locations in Maryland and the District of Columbia, is opening its first Virginia clinic in Warrenton in mid-January.

"People like to have options," total joint specialist Rajeev Pandarinath, MD, told the news outlet, as healthcare continues its shift toward a more consumer-driven market. "Warrenton is a growing community. We look forward to providing the best patient-focused experience we can."

Three more orthopedic surgeons will join Dr. Pandarinath at the new facility: Rishi Bhatnagar, MD; Satheesh Ramineni, MD; and Kristen Cadieux, DPM.

Surgeries will be performed at nearby Fauquier Hospital, a Center of Excellence for joint replacement.

Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center is a 10-physician group with locations in Warrenton and Gainesville, Va., according to its website.
