Quality Orthopaedic Care at St. Peter’s
- Specialty expertise: Our orthopaedic surgeons provide services not widely found elsewhere in Montana, including revision surgery for hip and knee replacements and an anterior approach hip replacement. In addition, Dr. Kerry Hale is one of only two pediatric orthopaedic surgeons in the state.
- Tailored non-surgical approaches and surgical approaches: Typically, our APPs will treat you first with non-surgical approaches, including oral medications, activity modifications, joint injections and/or referral to occupational or physical therapy. If those do not provide you with relief, our team will walk you through which orthopaedic surgery options may best fit your situation.
- Pre-surgical education: We are excited to serve you before, during and after your surgery. One of the most important ways we can help you prepare before surgery is by making sure you have the information you need to have the best outcome.
- Quality initiatives: Our team closely tracks a variety of quality measures for orthopaedic care to ensure our patients are receiving the best possible care.
