Established in 2000 as Alpine Orthopaedic Specialists, AOS was founded by six physicians who saw a need for a higher level of orthopaedic care in Northern Utah. They sought to create a practice where doctors would be free to pursue sub-specialties to their fullest. A state-of-the-art facility where innovative treatments would be encouraged and employed. A center of excellence where patients would be not only treated, but educated. Now, nearly a decade later, AOS is that center of excellence, with a well-deserved reputation as one of the premier orthopaedic practices in Utah.


360-degree healing is our philosophy and our promise

The musculoskeletal system is astonishingly complex. Twenty-six bones, connected by a myriad of joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles, comprise one foot alone. Each part of the system links to another, the components joining to form a unified whole – a human body that can run an errand or a touchdown, play hopscotch or the harp, drive a golf ball or a car. These activities and so many others depend on the musculoskeletal system functioning properly.

Any of the musculoskeletal components can suffer an injury or be afflicted with a disorder, compromising the body’s ability to perform at its best, and often causing debilitating pain. That’s when it’s time to turn to Alpine Orthopaedic Specialists, where 360-degree healing is our philosophy and our promise.


…A Complete Spectrum of Care

AOS offers orthopaedic specialists for each area of the body, conveniently located under one roof. Whether a patient has an isolated injury or a disorder affecting various parts of the body, our experts work separately or together to make the correct diagnosis and implement the best treatment plan. Patients appreciate the ease of access to various experts in one location. Should the need arise to seek care for a new injury in the future, AOS patients have a trusted place to return to.

…Comprehensive Capabilities within Specialties

Each specialist at AOS is keenly familiar with all aspects of his or her area of expertise. Orthopaedic treatments are continually evolving and improving; no single orthopedist could keep abreast of all the advances for all areas of the body. Specialization allows AOS physicians focus solely on the developments in one area, staying at the forefront of new technologies and procedures. Our doctors provide an extraordinary depth of care within their specific domains.

…A collaborative approach

Complex problems call for collaborative solutions. The AOS team includes the leading physicians and surgeons in the Intermountain West, whose shared vision is of the patient as a whole, active and vibrant individual. Our physicians’ ability to consult with one another and take advantage of each other’s experience shortens the diagnostic period for our patients, leads to correct diagnoses, and increases accuracy of predictions about outcomes. Just as the body is a unit, so is AOS – everyone working together with one common purpose: to provide the best possible orthopaedic care and treatment.

…Full-circle recovery

Perhaps most importantly, 360-degree healing from AOS brings our patients full circle – back to where they want to be. AOS gives patients ability in place of immobility, activity in place of incapacity, and ease in place of pain.
