Dr. Mellinger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mellinger "Hi there! I am board certified with advanced (fellowship) training in treating injuries and disorders of the upper extremity. I care for conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers. In addition to the fellowship, I also earned a Certificate of Added Qualification in hand, wrist and elbow surgery. My areas of interest include joint replacement, fracture care, tendon and ligament injuries, athletic and sports-related injuries, nerve disorders and congenital disorders. I also perform surgical arthroscopy, a less invasive form of surgery using small instruments with less trauma to muscle and tissue. Also, WALANT, Wide Awake Local Anesthesia No Tourniquet, is a method of hand surgery I perform in an outpatient setting. Prior to becoming an orthopaedic surgeon, I worked as an optical scientist and optical and mechanical engineer. I made the decision to dedicate myself to medicine while volunteering in surgical clinics serving northern Mexico. I joined Northern Arizona Orthopaedics in 2003. I love spending my time with my beautiful wife, Dr. Kirsten Mellinger, an local optometrist, and my three children. We enjoy all that Northern Arizona has to offer including golf, hiking, mountain biking and photography. I look forward to meeting you!"

I just want to start by saying Dr. Mellinger and HIS immediate staff were all wonderful. However, anytime you need someone's help on the phone (appt. scheduling, billing) good luck getting anyone that isn't incompetent or rude!
