Excellence in Research, Education & 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.

‘Biodesign’ course teams UNM engineering students, faculty with UNM physician

Collaborative Research on Knee Pain Results in Research Award and Paper Presentation in France


Lauren Eberly, MD

A University of New Mexico School of Medicine alumna who collaborated on a knee pain study during 2013-14 with two UNM Orthopaedics faculty members and a former Chief Resident has earned the 2015 Vernon L. Nickel Award for excellence in research from the Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Association (ORA). Lauren Eberly, who graduated from UNM this spring, was recently notified by the ORA of the award following her submission of a research paper she served as the primary author of titled Psychological and Demographic Factors Influencing Pain Scores with Knee Osteoarthritis.

Eberly, lauds the paper’s following five UNM co-authors for being “nothing but supportive” of her research: Dr. Robert Schenck, Orthopaedics Professor and Chair; Dr. Daniel Wascher, Orthopaedics Professor and Assistant Team Physician of UNM Lobos; and Dr. Dustin Richter, 2015 Orthopaedics Residency Program graduate and current Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellow at the University of Virginia School of Medicine; Dr. George Comerci, General Internal Medicine Professor; and Dr. Gary Mlady, Associate Professor and Chair of Musculoskeletal Radiology.

It gained both national and international recognition from Eberly’s presentation of it at last November’s Annual Meeting of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons in Dallas, Texas and at the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine’s 10th Biennial Congress this past June in Lyon, France. It reports on a year-long pain study which involved an ethnically diverse group of 355 patients with knee osteoarthritis.
