Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, uses a magnetic field and a sophisticated computer system to create detailed, intricate images of the body’s internal organs, structures, and tissue.
In orthopedics, we use MRIs to produce high-quality images of soft tissue areas such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. MRIs produce extremely clear images of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, spine, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.
Our MRI services are provided by Imaging Partners of St. Peters. They are conveniently located in the same building as our St. Peters office, so you don’t have to worry about going anywhere else. Please call their office at (636) 229-4247 to make an appointment or find out more.

Radiography, or X-ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. X-rays are diagnostic images that are created by passing small, highly controlled amounts of radiation through the human body to capture the resulting shadows and reflections on a photographic plate.
The most common use of X-rays is to assist in identifying and treating bone fractures. Diagnostic X-ray images of your injury can reveal the tiniest details – even very fine, hairline fractures or chips in bone.
When X-ray images are taken after orthopedic treatment, it is done to ensure that a fracture has stabilized, is properly aligned, and shows signs of healing. Bone X-rays are an essential tool for orthopedic surgery as well and may be used in conjunction with joint replacement or fracture reduction procedures.
X-ray images of the spine, joints, and extremities are performed every day at Advanced Bone & Joint offices in St. Peters and O’Fallon, Missouri, eliminating your need to travel to another diagnostic facility.
