At Teton Orthopaedics, we take a highly individualized approach to patient care, which we believe provides the best possible experience and outcome for each of our patients.

This is best accomplished through a two-way discussion and careful listening on the part of a sports medicine physician. Every patient is unique, and every situation has many nuances and variables that must be taken into account. This can contribute to the treatment process to achieve overall wellness, and also help to reduce future injuries.
