JCH Welcomes Orthopedic Surgeon to Medical Staff

Jersey Community Hospital (JCH) is proud to announce that Orthopedic Surgeon Jonathan Blake, D.O.,
has joined its staff. Dr. Blake is seeing patients at the JCH Physician Clinic (located next to Cardiopulmonary).  He is now accepting new patients at his office at Jersey Community Hospital in Jerseyville.

A board certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Blake has experience with a variety of procedures, including partial joint replacements (Hip/Knee), elbow replacements, thumb joint replacements and some types of shoulder replacements. He is trained in adult and pediatric fracture care and sports medicine and is skilled at hand surgery, knee and shoulder scopes, ACL reconstructions and carpal tunnel testing/surgery.

“I am looking forward to meeting new patients in Jerseyville,” Dr. Blake said. “As an orthopedic surgeon, I am trained to determine who might benefit from surgery, but I also offer minimally invasive options, such as pain injections, that will benefit my patients whenever possible.”

Dr. Blake earned his medical degree and completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Health Sciences – College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, Mo. He also completed extra training in pediatric orthopedics at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., and in traumatology at the University Medical Center of Nevada in Las Vegas.
