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.

This course is designed to provide a review of current trends in the practice of Pediatric Orthopaedics. This conference is intended to update the knowledge base of practicing orthopaedic surgeons, pediatricians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners on diagnosis and treatment of common hip, spine, brachial plexus and non-accidental trauma in the pediatric population. In addition, we will cover the nursing and rehabilitation aspects for treating scoliosis patients in the perioperative period. There will also be a discussion of the opioid crisis and how we plan to manage pain control in the post-operative pediatric population.

She was the only biomedical engineer to receive this honor. The honorees were selected based on public nominations reviewed by an independent panel of judges, comprising notable female leaders in the sciences. To quote Deborah Breitfeld, Executive Director at the NMTC: “Trailblazers, brilliant, determined, strong . . . is how I can begin to describe this year’s honorees for our Women In Technology awards. These women hold critical technology and education positions throughout New Mexico in private industry, state government, national laboratories, and education.” ... More>

Congratulations Resident Class of 2019

After focusing on hip and knee pathology and treatment during his residency, Dr. Bankhead is starting a sports fellowship at the University of Virginia. Another graduate, Dr. Dollahite, primarily focused on orthopaedic trauma during his residency. His new destination is at Keesler Air Force Base on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Our next graduate, Dr. Gilligan, spent his residency studying the effect of extensor tendon lacerations, cyclical loading, and load to failure to better evaluate when surgical intervention is required. He will now attend West Virginia University for a fellowship in adult reconstruction. Next, after focusing on posterolateral corner ligament reconstruction as well as outcomes after complex spinal surgery, Dr. Johnson will begin a fellowship in spine surgery in Wisconsin. Lastly, during his residency, Dr. Wojcik focused primarily on examining transitional anatomy of the spine and reviewing modern techniques in diagnosing and treating periprosthetic joint infections. He will start a fellowship in adult reconstruction next year in Tampa, Florida.
