Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine

About Us

What began with James Grimes, MD and Albert Volk, MD joining practices in 1999 at Flagler Hospital, has become the premier North Florida orthopaedic practice known as Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine. 


Dr. Grimes and Dr. Volk made the perfect pair to launch their orthopaedic practice. Dr. Grimes is board certified in orthopaedic surgery and has a sports medicine subspecialty. Over the years, he has become a recognized joint specialist in the medical community. Dr. Volk also received board certification in orthopaedic surgery. He was fellowship trained in shoulder reconstructive surgery and sports medicine and is one of the leaders in arthroscopic shoulder surgery in the area.


Kurtis Hort, MD was the next addition to the Orthopaedic Associates team, providing the practice with a specialty in disorders of the foot and ankle. Dr. Hort is board certified in orthopaedic surgery and is fellowship trained in foot and ankle surgery. 
A brand new cutting-edge facility was opened in September of 2004 to accommodate the growing practice, and soon after, Brian Haycook, MD joined the team. He is the only fellowship trained orthopaedic spine surgeon in St. Johns County and specializes in neck and back disorders.


To further expand our practices’ capabilities, John Stark, MD came aboard in 2006. Dr. Stark has fellowship training in hand & microvascular surgery. Following this addition, Sina Kasraeian, MD, specializing in arthroscopy and sports medicine and board certified in orthopaedic surgery, brought unique experience in extreme sports to our staff. Beth Pearce, DPM joined the Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine team with a subspecialty certification in podiatric surgery. One of the most recent additions to our staff, Casey McClone, MD, is a primary care sports medicine doctor.


Our practice continues to grow and thrive with the addition of a second office located in the St. Johns County/Jacksonville area. We are constantly adding to our industry-leading staff in order to bring you specialized care to all areas of the body. Our expansion allows us to better serve you by acting as a comprehensive solution for all orthopaedic issues.
