Care Philosophy

Although the primary focus of my practice is sports medicine I treat many patients who do not consider themselves athletes. By using a sports medicine approach I aim to avoid surgery but if needed can use minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques in many cases. My previous experience with elite athletes as well as patients from the community allows me to treat a wide range of problems. My research background keeps me on the cutting edge of orthopaedic surgery and provides patients with the latest scientific information and advances. Specifically with regards to shoulder and knee I am able to offer the full complement of treatment options such as cartilage resurfacing and transplants arthroscopic reconstructions and replacement surgeries including total and partial knee replacement as well as traditional and reverse shoulder replacements.

Patient Comments (2)
Raleigh, NC |
Very rude &abrupt. Went back because of continued issues after Arthroscopic knee surgery by Dr. Almenkinders. My knee had given out &I had injured my wrist. He said very loudly outside my room "What does she want now?". Went to a great practice (Emerge Ortho. W/fantastic Dr.Ralph Leibelt), learned that so much "stuff" had been removed from my prior 2 Arthroscopic knee surgeries that I needed knee replacement. Wish Dr A had said that knee replace. was probable,could have saved me from 3 surgery
