Dr. Hunter is a Board-certified orthopedic surgeon and sports-medicine provider, seeing patients for chronic and acute musculoskeletal problems. He specializes in arthroscopic surgery, a technique that allows the surgeon to view the inside of a joint using a tiny camera called an arthroscope. The surgeon performs necessary debridements or repairs using specialized instruments inserted into a joint through small incisions in the skin. Dr. Hunter uses this technique with many knee and shoulder surgeries, including meniscectomies and meniscus repairs, ACL repairs, and shoulder rotator cuff repairs. He further specializes in total shoulder joint replacements, shoulder and knee reconstructive surgeries, and wrist and hand surgeries including carpal tunnel release and trigger-finger release, done using an open technique.
Dr. Hunter also sees patients for non-surgical orthopedic issues, including sports-related injuries and chronic and acute injuries acquired through activities of work and play.
Dr. Hunter sees patients at our Rio Grande Hospital Specialty Clinic in Del Norte on Fridays. Please call 719-657-4099 for an appointment.
