Nationally recognized group forms newly created

Aria 3B Orthopaedic Specialists practice and the Aria 3B Orthopaedic Institute 

Robert E. Booth, Jr., MD, Arthur R. Bartolozzi, MD, and Richard A. Balderston, MD, of Booth Bartolozzi Balderston Orthopaedics, along with their highly experienced partners, Philip M. Maurer, MD, Russell R. Bear, DO, FAAOS, Catharine Mayer, MD, Jason J. Waterman, MD, and their clinical and operating teams will join Aria Health, the largest healthcare provider in Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County effective January 1.

The Aria 3B Orthopaedic Institute will have sites at Aria’s Bucks County Campus in Langhorne, PA, as well as in the Curtis Center located at 6th and Walnut Streets in Center City, Philadelphia, and in Cherry Hill, NJ.

“This new partnership provides the unique opportunity to not only grow orthopaedics, but also broaden Aria Health’s footprint in the region,” said Kathleen Kinslow, CRNA, EdD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Aria Health. 

“Teaming with Aria and creating a new Bucks County practice location will enable us to simultaneously expand our reach, while maximizing the patient experience,” said Dr. Booth.

Recognized as leaders in their fields, the “3Bs” have practiced in the region for many years delivering high quality care with expertise in joint replacement for hip and knee, sports medicine and surgery, and comprehensive spine care including complex reconstruction and minimally invasive procedures.  In addition, they have developed leading-edge techniques and devices moving the field of orthopaedics to new levels.  Examples of these accomplishments include advancements in minimally invasive surgical techniques for joint replacement and the development of the first custom knee replacement designed primarily for women, and the first implantation of the world’s newest knee, the Persona™ from Zimmer®.

“We look toward fostering the growth of the Aria 3B Orthopaedic Institute in existing and new markets,” added Kinslow.
