St. Luke's Clinic – Alexander Orthopaedics

Our goal is to return you back to full activity–safely, quickly, and conveniently. We provide expert, individualized care to recreational and elite athletes who live in the Wood River Valley and to patients referred to us from throughout Idaho. Our emphasis is on injury prevention and treatment and a physician-patient partnership to get you back to tip-top shape.

We provide musculoskeletal evaluations to patients of all ages, with onsite x-ray and same-day emergency appointments (in most cases). When you come to see us, surgery is not your only option. In some cases, your injury or condition may be healed through rehabilitation and available prescriptions. If you do require surgery, we'll keep you informed of why surgery is required, what will be done in the surgery, and what to expect as an eventual outcome.
