CHRISTUS St. Vincent Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Associates

Our Approach

At CHRISTUS St. Vincent Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Associates, our goal to provide the highest quality and most up-to-date orthopaedic care to Northern New Mexico. Our team of board certified M.D.'s, PA-C's and caring staff are located in the Physicians Plaza of Santa Fe near CHRISTUS St. Vincent.

Our orthopaedic surgeons focus on a broad spectrum of specialties, including joint replacement, arthroscopic surgery, sports medicine, trauma/fractures, and general orthopaedic treatment of the arm, elbow, hand and wrist, hip, knee, and shoulder. When surgery is needed, minimally invasive techniques are used when possible. Microscopic capabilities are available for surgery of the hand. Computer assisted surgery is available for joint replacements. We offer full service on-site radiology.

Our physicians and staff take time to answer questions and offer clear explainations so patients understand their diagnosis, treatment options, and their role in the recovery process. Our mission is to provide our patients with the best care and treatment possible.
