Our experienced team of more than 75 orthopaedic surgeons, doctors, physicians assistants, and nurse practitioners, offers sub-specialized care in six locations throughout New Hampshire for every type of orthopaedic condition or injury.
A Full Scope of Services
Our goal is to get you back to the activities you enjoy as quickly as possible so we offer a wide variety of treatment options from physical therapy to the newest minimally invasive, muscle-sparing procedures for a shorter recovery time and less pain and scarring during recovery.
Experience You Can Trust
We see over 43,000 patients each year and consistently do more than 33,000 surgical cases and outpatient procedures. With that volume of patients comes experience you can rely on.
Complex Care When You Need It
As an academic health system no matter what Dartmouth-Hitchcock facility you chose, you will have peace of mind knowing that you’ll have access to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the only academic medical center in New Hampshire, if you need care for a more complex condition or injury. As the region’s only Level 1 trauma center, there is no other orthopaedic practice in New Hampshire that treats the number of complex trauma and revision cases than we do and that equals experience that can help you and your family.
A Care Team By Your Side to Improve Your Outcome
We make sure you have all the information and support you need to make decisions that are right for you. You’ll make a personal connection with our nurses to help guide you through your journey back to a comfortable, enjoyable lifestyle.
Bringing New Science to Your Care
Our researchers in Lebanon are helping to develop new techniques, prosthetics, and care protocols that may someday be used across the globe. Patients can take part in these research studies for added treatment options. Plus, we are working with other leading healthcare organizations such as the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic to create the guidelines and protocols for orthopaedic doctors to use across the nation.
We’re committed to getting you back to work, back to sports, back to activities you enjoy… back to life!
Better Than Before Surgery
Dr. Carr was the right surgeon for me. He described all possible treatment options, talked with me about outcomes and how many ACL surgeries he's performed. I credit Steve Vincente, my physical therapist, in getting me on the road to recovery. His positive energy made all the difference. I am happy to say my knee is not only as good as it was before, it's better.Hannah Kearney / 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist and World Champion freestyle skier
No Big Deal
The most surprising thing about having a complete hip replacement was that it really wasn't a big deal. I'd say all through the journey, from surgery to recovery, you've got to remember it takes some effort. There is some discomfort, but it was well worth it and I won't hesitate again to have my right one done.Ted Davis / Total Hip Patient
What Surprised Me the Most
I didn't know I could do what I can do now and that's what surprised me the most. At my age and with the injuries I had, I thought I was done. Being able to sit straight up is a big deal. Being able to nod my head, twist it side-to-side...that's a really, really big deal. I wasn't able to do those things when I got here.Derek Hampton / Functional Restoration Program graduate
Achieving Your Goals
Now I know I can go out and rip turns and feel awesome and feel completely normal again. I felt like the sports medicine department can relate to you...and help you achieve the goals that you want to get back to, and my goals were to get back into ski racing and back to lacrosse, and I've done that thus far.Gunnar / ACL Repair Surgery
