Dr. Andrew Bries, ORA Orthopedics

Andrew Bries

Orthopedic medicine appealed to me for one big reason: my father. He was injured in an industrial accident, which required him to have several orthopedic surgeries to regain use of his arm. This, and various sports injuries in high school and college, gave me an interest in caring for and treating people with musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.
