LOVELAND, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. Joshua T. Snyder has joined Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies as a surgeon specializing in the care of adults with hip injuries whose surgery can be done using tiny incisions and a specialized surgical scope and camera.
Appointments with Dr. Snyder may be made at OCR’s office in Loveland. Call 970-419-7050 or 1-800-722-7441.
“I truly enjoy helping the individuals I take care of, who used to go to Denver for this surgery,” Dr. Snyder said. His patients may have suffered a torn cartilage in the hip, or have conditions like bone spurs or tendon damage, which don’t require hip replacement surgery.
“We’re pleased to have Dr. Snyder’s expertise in hip arthroscopy as part of our office,” said Dr. Robert Benz, OCR’s board president.
By performing surgery with a scope and other instruments through tiny incisions, Dr. Snyder’s patients can recover and return more quickly to work, sports, and activities, compared to the recovery time with traditional open surgery.
Dr. Snyder has previously worked as an orthopaedic surgeon with other medical groups in northern Colorado from 2009-2015.
He and his family moved here from Chicago, where he completed fellowship training as an orthopaedic sports medicine surgeon at University of Chicago Hospital, 2008-09.
During fellowship, Dr. Snyder assisted in treatment of Chicago Blackhawks players. He also worked as team physician for athletes at University of Chicago, for high school football players, and for the Chinese women’s Olympic volleyball and diving teams.
During fellowship, Dr. Snyder gained expertise in hip arthroscopy, and is now one of the few orthopaedic surgeons in Colorado qualified to treat many hip injuries arthroscopically.
Prior to fellowship, Dr. Snyder completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, IL (2003-08).
He earned his medical degree from Chicago Medical School (1999-2003).
Dr. Snyder also received master’s and bachelor’s degrees from University of Illinois.
