Learn about this doctor

Dr. Schepsis' Care Philosophy

My focus is on providing the optimal care for your knee, shoulder, elbow, or ankle problem. I have been in practice over 25 years, and when there is a nonsurgical approach available that will work in the patients best interest, I will choose that rather than jumping the gun and performing surgery prematurely or unnecessarily. On the other hand, when a surgical solution is the best, as well as most expedient way to handle the problem, I will present this to the patient. I have been in an academic position for most of my practice years, and have a vast knowledge and experience with cutting edge orthopedics.

    I tore my sternal chest tendon, but the first surgeon did not fix it. Dr. Schepsis fixed my chest tendon 4 years after my original injury.
