Case Studies


Nilssen Orthopedics is a true industry-leading multi-disciplinary medical treatment and research facility that proudly specializes in all ankle and foot disorders as well as sports injuries, prevention, rehabilitation, athletic performance and much more. It was founded by the esteemed Dr. Erik Nilssen who has completed fellowships in both sports medicine and foot and ankle at the American Sports Medicine Institute.

Nilssen Orthopedics had recently come to the realization that they needed to move forward and position their practice for the modern era but had no real marketing strategy of their own that would enable them to do this. They enlisted the Help of HIP Creative to accomplish exactly that in an effort to not only leverage the power of modern marketing to their advantage but to also make the proactive leap into the world of Inbound Marketing with open arms.

HIP Creative designed a brand-new website for Nilssen Orthopedics from the ground up — one that was built to educate visitors on conditions and surgeries that created a new way to book appointments with Dr. Nilssen and more. We also used Inbound Marketing as a way to help establish their practice as an authority on Ankle and Foot surgeries and launched new testimonial stories where recent patients were able to tell their story and express their gratitude for all that Dr. Nilssen provided.

Educational Website

HIP Creative designed a brand-new website for Nilssen Orthopedics — one that not only acted as a tool to educate visitors on relevant types of surgeries and treatments but one that also made it easier than ever for visitors to book appointments with Dr. Nilssen.

• In addition to being optimized for search engine optimization, the website also used responsive web design practices to increase compatibility with all types of devices including smartphones and tablets.
• HIP Creative also created several different campaigns with content offers, blogs, videos and more.
• There are also testimonial stories built into the campaigns that allow new patients to see existing ones retell their journey, then see how they are now able to enjoy life to its fullest thanks to Nilssen Orthopedics.

Quality Video Production

HIP Creative also created high-end videos that allow visitors to easily learn about and better understand not only who Dr. Nilssen is and what he offers, but why he does what he does. These videos have thousands of views on social media and have been a great tool to stand out among competitors.

Patient Acquisition & Retention Framework™

In an effort to both drive more traffic and increase leads, HIP Creative also created a new Patient Acquisition and Retention Framework for Nilssen Orthopedics. This fully automated solution went a long way toward eliminating human error, provided a consistent flow of quality information to employees, and reduced staff time spent on menial tasks like data entry and upgrades.

This technique made it easier than ever for Nilssen Orthopedics to use patient data to connect to new patients, retain existing ones and grow their practice in the way they needed. It also provided the most important benefit of all: delivering a better patient experience; no exceptions.

How Does it Work?

The Patient Acquisition and Retention Framework maximizes your ability to use patient data to connect with new patients, retain existing patients, and grow your practice. The Framework is an information matrix that identifies, contacts, schedules, and maintains contact with the patient before, during, and after their surgery.

Success Story

Thus far, Nilssen Orthopedics has been incredibly happy with the results of HIP Creative's efforts. The attractive new website not only makes it easier for people to find the essential information they need and to sign up for appointments, but it also has generated a significant increase in both organic traffic and leads (as well as overall lead quality).
