A Holistic Approach

From head to toe, we’re here for you. Read a little more about what we do below.

Joint Reconstruction

It is an unfortunate fact of life that our joints wear out, often at a faster rate than the rest of our body. Especially vulnerable are the hips and knees, the large weight-bearing joints of the lower extremities. We perform several knee and hip replacements weekly. In fact, our clinic was one of the first in the state to adopt the anterior hip replacement, which allows for faster mobility and decreased risk of dislocation. We also perform more partial knee replacements than any other providers in Alaska. While not as common an ailment, we also reconstruct shoulders, utilizing hemiarthroplasties, total shoulders, and reverse total shoulders when applicable.

Sports Medicine

We’re known in our neck of the woods for living hard and playing harder. Unfortunately that can sometimes come at a cost. From ACL, to rotator cuff tears, from sprains and strains, to falls and breaks, our team is ready to help get back out there doing the things you love. We pride ourselves in doing everything we can to keep surgery as the last resort. Yet if the need arrises, we’ll be there to walk you through, every step of the way.

Foot & Ankle

We care for a wide array of foot and ankle problems including: ankle and hindfoot arthritis, midfoot arthritis, charcot arthropathy, flatfoot deformities, ligamentous reconstruction, tendon repair, cartilage restoration, fracture fixation, and many more.


With Alaska’s world-renown ruggedness, it’s no surprise that emergency orthopedic care is a cornerstone of what we do. We treat urgent and emergent fractures and other soft-tissue injuries from across the state. From simple wrist and ankle breaks to complex pelvic reconstructions, we can help you get back into the wild.

Hand & Upper Extremity

Hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder pain can certainly stop you in your tracks. Patients often comment how much they take their upper extremities for granted until there is a problem. We commonly treat both repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, arthritis, and impingement syndrome, and more acute injuries like rotator cuff tears, tendon ruptures, and fractures.

Stem Cell Cartilage Restoration

There will come a point some day where we look back and marvel that orthopedists once reconstructed worn out joints with metal and plastic. We’re excited about this future, and have been contributing on the front lines of biological engineering. Dr. Rhyneer spent months in Malaysia working with Dr. Khay Yong Saw, a pioneer in stem cell cartilage regeneration. We’ve brought this novel technique back to the US, and have shown amazing results with full-thickness cartilage restoration. Our patients have returned to sport and have reported significant reduction, and in most cases, a complete alleviation of knee pain.

Pediatric Orthopedics

As in with most facets of life, children are not just small adults. The anatomy and biomechanics differ from the skeletally mature. We treat a myriad of conditions specific to the adolescent patient. These include both congenital disorders and traumatic injuries.
