Dr. Thompson specializes in primary and revision total joint replacement, limb salvage surgery, orthopedic trauma, and the management of benign, malignant, and metastatic tumors of the musculoskeletal system. “What an honor and privilege it is to be trusted by patients seeking relief from musculoskeletal injury or disease. I enjoy getting to know my patients while learning how their orthopedic condition impacts their overall health and daily life. In this way, together, we can pragmatically weigh and consider treatment options in pursuit of an individual’s specific functional aspirations.” – Dr. Thompson
