Dr. Hoopes' Care Philosophy

One of Dr. Hoopes' mentors, Dr. Sigvard T. Hansen taught Dr. Hoopes the principle of identifying the cause of an ailment and to not just focus attention on the symptoms. As Dr. Hansen likes to say "Nothing happens for no reason." By taking the time and effort to figure out why a patient has their injury, Dr. Hoopes hopes to not only treat the current symptoms, but also the root cause of the condition. This unique approach to medicine sets Dr. Hoopes apart from the many doctors and physicians who eagerly jump on a diagnosis and offer operations that may provide some temporary relief, but often lead to a recurrence of the original problem as time passes.

    I have had a series of lower leg injuries that Dr. Hoops has treated including ankle surgery. I have seen multiple Doctors, multiple PTs for my treatment and I feel that Dr. Hoops approach to medicine and treatment has been extremely thorough and exactly what I have been seeking. He spent a lot of time focusing on prevention before going invasive. He works with and recommends physical therapists who are willing to use therapy techniques proven best for healing (this has been a big deal for me).

    I shattered my ankle about a year ago, and I have had three surgeries with Dr. Hoopes. He is very detail-oriented and excellent at what he does. I genuinely feel that he wants to do the best work that he possibly can. He has been helpful in addressing the issues I have ahead of me as well as treatment options, and answering any questions I may have. His demeanor very professional, and he's pretty handsome. haha. Definitely would recommend to anyone struggling with their ankle/foot.

    Dr Hoopes was great: knowledgeable and transparent; thorough yet fast. I love that he kept surgery as a last option, and emphasized lifestyle -- including a list of more suitable shoes on his website.

    He performed on my moms broken femur and was so helpful and willing to help us understand what was going on. He is an amazing surgeon

    Wait times are atrocious. Would consider looking into another MD that manages office better. Last appointment waited over an hour to get in. Appt was scheduled at 1:15 PM and not seen until after 2:30 PM. All appointments have had a high wait time of 20 minutes at least to over an hour. Have been back for multiple (5 with more to come) follow up appointments. Feel Dr. Hoopes is a good MD but office is not run well. Patient's time is important too!

    Dr. Hoopes treated me for a broken Calcanus (heel). Two fractures and a major surgery. He did an excellent job and I was walking again in 3-1/2 months. It appeared to have a lot of hardware (screws) in my foot, but it was necessary. The IHC hospital told it would take 9 months to return to normal activities.

    Dr. Hoopes says...

    Dr. Hoopes has a special interest and in-depth knowledge on chronic and acute running injuries and injuries in other endurance athletes such as cyclists. As a former Cat 1/2 Pro Road Bicycle and Expert Mountain Bike racer, he understands the desire of an athlete to stay active and get back to their sport as soon as possible. He is pioneering a way of thinking about and treating chronic injuries to runners that goes back to the roots of biomechanics and seeks to exploit the unique endowments of human physiology. While many try to treat and prevent injury with always more expensive and more complex shoes and other equipment, Dr. Hoopes first looks to careful examination of form and stride and simplicity. However, when non-surgical measures have proven ineffective, he is able to perform operative treatment that gets you back on your feet.
