Ian A. Stine, M.D.
“Individualized and compassionate patient care with a modern approach”
Dr. Stine is a fellowship-trained board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, trauma, and joint reconstruction. He has a passion for treating athletes ranging from the pediatric to the aging athlete. Whenever possible he utilizes non-surgical rehabilitation to return patients to pain-free activity and high-level performance. For more severe injuries, he performs arthroscopic surgery of the elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle. ACL reconstruction in recreational and competitive athletes is a common but significant injury which Dr. Stine treats with the latest scientifically proven arthroscopic techniques. He has a special interest in the field of joint preservation with significant experience utilizing cartilage restoration to keep patients active with their native joints for as long as possible. Hip arthroscopy is a new and exciting field in orthopedics that allows a minimally invasive approach to the treatments of many hip conditions. Very few surgeons have experience or training in this technique. Dr. Stine is proud to offer patients this innovative solution to hip problems that don’t respond to conservative measures. When necessary, Dr Stine performs joint replacement of the hip, knee, shoulder for severe arthritis. After training at a large joint replacement center, he offers patients minimally invasive incisions to speed recovery and utilizes cutting-edge implants to ensure the longevity of the new joint. Trauma and fracture care is a common orthopedic problem that needs to be handled with a modern approach as well. Dr Stine is a surgeon that our local Emergency rooms call on regularly to handle simple and complex orthopedic fractures.
