About the Practice

A Little Bit of History
In 1964, Dr. A. Louis Mariorenzi, a lifelong Rhode Island native, began practicing Orthopaedic Surgery in the Providence area. His practice became a corporation as soon as eligible in 1969. Throughout the 1960’s and 70’s, Dr. Louis Mariorenzi pioneered multiple new orthopaedic procedures. Specifically, he was the first to perform joint replacement surgery in Rhode Island. He was one of a few individuals in the country given special approval by the US FDA to perform this procedure. Additionally, he introduced and advanced arthroscopic surgery in Rhode Island during the late 1970’s and early 80’s.
The practice, now Orthopaedic Associates, Inc., relocated to its present location in 1988. Over the following 15 years, highly qualified and carefully selected board certified orthopaedic surgeons either joined the group after completing their orthopaedic training, or merged their practices with Orthopaedic Associates. These affiliations created a diversified and skilled orthopaedic surgery group spanning all of central and northern Rhode Island.
Our practice offers individualized, cost effective service in both the surgical and non-surgical care of all disorders and ailments of the musculoskeletal system. Additionally, the practice offers on-site physical therapy, two MRI scanners, x-rays and in-office operating facilities. Our belief is that by offering the combination of skilled physicians and extensive on-site services, we are able to provide efficient, cost effective delivery of high quality care to our patients.
