Providing Excellence in Patient Care


For more than 40 years, our physicians have provided bone and joint health care to New Mexicans. We specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, including bones, ligaments, muscles, joints, tendons, and nerves. Our orthopaedic physicians are experienced in treating patients of all ages who have broken bones, foot/ankle/hand/shoulder problems, spine injuries/deformities, or need joint replacement and reconstruction.

To provide you with the most comprehensive care possible, our faculty specialize in pediatrics, trauma, oncology, rehabilitation, and physical therapy. Each patient visit ends with a discussion of medical findings and treatment options. We look forward to providing you with optimal care and attention.
