Doctor Patient Trust Day was established to raise awareness of the ethics and code of conduct that all healthcare professionals adhere to.

It is a day to raise awareness of the significance of providing accurate information to physicians.

It is also a day for physicians to ensure they adhere to the most recent standards for maintaining patients’ trust.


We are here for all you ‘bum knee’ needs!

Happy Friday, folks!

National Athletic Training Month is celebrated every year in March.

It is celebrated in recognition of the expertise and efforts of athletic trainers across the globe and is dedicated to all those who play a vital role in the development and health care of athletes at various levels.

Shout out to the OM AT’s! You are the best! 🌟

A fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon elects to spend an extra year after their required five years of general orthopedic surgery training, focusing on a specific ‘specialty’ in orthopedics like sports medicine or total joints.

This allows the fellowship trained physician to become an ‘expert’ in their chosen specialty field.

Congratulations to Tami Keller on her 25 years of service at Ortho Montana today!

We are very fortunate to have Tami on our team. She has served in a variety of positions with multiple providers though the years. She always demonstrates dedication and a work ethic that is exemplary. Tami is a wonderful example to all of us on how to treat patients with humility, kindness, and generosity.
