Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gieringer "I am pleased to introduce myself and my staff. I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon. Although I am trained in all types of orthopaedic surgery, I have chosen to limit my practice to the treatment of the shoulder and elbow. I do most of my surgeries with an arthroscope. Sometimes it is not possible to do so, such as with large rotator cuff tear repairs, shoulder replacements or certain types of reconstructions of the shoulder. I have done several thousand shoulder arthroscopies. I was the first surgeon to do arthroscopy of the shoulder in Anchorage, over twenty years ago. I have helped evolve some of the current techniques in arthroscopic shoulder surgery during its early years. Staying on top of current developments in the treatment of shoulder conditions requires that my staff and I take extra effort but we feel that it is a very important aspect to providing expert orthopaedic care."
