The physicians at Summit Orthopedics have extensive expertise identifying the cause of hip problems and determining a course of action that makes sense for you.

Dr. Breien is the best. He has already completed one hip, now on to the next! A good man and an excellent surgeon!
Dr. Daly is an excellent hip replacement surgeon and I have recommended him to two of my siblings both of whom thought he was fantastic, one was a total knee replacement and one was a total hip replacement. They also felt Dan the physician assistant was terrific. I tell everyone how great the team is and what a great job they do in all areas.
Dr. Drogt, PAs, and all staff are very good - Dr. Drogt is SO skilled and has been just wonderful to me through and after my hip surgery! Summit is just excellent!!
Dr. Skendzel performed arthroscopic hip repair in October. I rehabbed hard with his team- started biking again June 15th- after taking 20 years off. Today I completed my 500th Mile on a bike. You guys are amazing. Kudos!
Would highly recommend Dr. Wickum for hip surgery. This is my second.
I had a hip replacement and had excellent care - Dr. Dane Hanson is a wonderful surgeon.
I just recommended Dr. Voight to my friend. Actually, I recommend her to all my friends. I have gone for hip and running issues and the care plan I've gotten has always worked and is easy for me to follow through on. I just looked her up again to give this recommendation and saw that there was a place to leave a comment.
Amy was confident and clear with her appraisal of my injury. She was able to identify the next steps clearly, and was sure to discuss the rational for future assessment. I don't think I have ever felt this confident that I will get the best care, and outcome from a another medical professional.
Dr. Perra and his staff are second to none. Always kind, caring, expedient and knowledgeable.
Dr. Scofield and his team were incredible form start to finish. I can't thank them enough for such great care.
Dr. Stroemer and staff demonstrated not only outstanding professional skills but took the time to invest into me as a 24 hour patient who has just experienced an intense operation procedure.
I can't thank Dr. Warner and his team for the excellent work they did! Because of them I am able to go back and do all things I was doing before my injury. Thank you so much!
Understanding the Hip
In many ways, our hips are the body’s unsung heroes. They carry out a challenging, seemingly contradictory function to support our weight while at the same time allowing for motion in a variety of directions. Hips are critical to our ability to stand, walk, and run.
Though versatile, hips are not indestructible. A variety of problems can develop, including arthritis, fractures, inflammation, muscle strains, and even cancer. Common hip complaints include groin pain, clicking and popping, pain with certain movements, pain that moves into our thighs, and difficulty bending.
Whether you’re seeking to ski the slopes of your favorite hill or simply walk upstairs without pain, we can help.
