Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists expands to Newtown-Langhorne area


Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists (BCOS) opened its brand-new office on the campus of St. Mary’s Medical Center in Langhorne on June 20, becoming the fourth office location for the practice, and its first office in the Lower Bucks County area.

Founded over 40 years ago, BCOS is a full-service orthopedic care provider that has been primarily located in the Central Bucks County area with offices in Doylestown and Warrington. The new office on the St. Mary’s Medical Center campus substantially increases its service area, making it more convenient for patients in Newtown, Yardley, Langhorne, Levittown, Bristol, Bensalem and nearby New Jersey towns.

The new office shares many similarities with other BCOS offices. It will offer the full range of orthopedic services including care for chronic issues, acute injuries, pain management, and non-invasive surgical interventions. The office has a variety of private exam rooms and is designed with BCOS’ signature aesthetic.

The primary doctors on-site will be orthopedic surgeons Dr. Joshua Steere, who specializes in joint reconstruction, specifically hip and knee replacement, and Dr. Andrew Ritting, who specializes in hand and upper extremity surgery.

“We are already caring for many patients from the Newtown/Langhorne area,” explains Dr. Ritting. “But we know it was sometimes challenging, especially for our elderly patients, to commute to Doylestown or Warrington. Our new office will make their diagnostics, treatment, follow-up and routine care so much more convenient.”

All BCOS surgeons are credentialed to perform surgery at St. Mary’s Medical Center, Doylestown Hospital, and Bucks County Surgical Suites and if surgery is warranted, surgeons will work individually with patients to determine the most appropriate location for their procedure.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling the central scheduling line at 215-348-7000 and there is ample parking in the St. Mary’s Medical Center lot and garage.
