About Us

Our Research Clinic

The ORCA team is built of a diverse group of individuals with different backgrounds working cohesively to fulfill your orthopedic needs. Our office staff leads active lifestyles and includes competitive athletes such as runners and endurance bikers. Their families ski, snowboard, bike, and play baseball and soccer. They understand how important it is for our patients to return to their own favorite activities. That’s why our Orthopedics Surgeon put our patients first.
