Dr. Robert Hunter, director of the Orthopedic Sports Medicine Center and
Orthopedic Center of
Excellence at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center (HRRMC), has
been selected for the Best Doctors in America’s most current database.
Only about five percent of U.S. doctors are granted this honor.
Leading medical practitioners, researchers and teachers elect the physicians
being considered for this distinction. Doctors cannot buy listings and
are not paid for being included. Only physicians who earn the consensus
support of their peers are recognized.
The Best Doctors database at
www.bestdoctors.com connects patients around the world to expert medical care. To date, the
physicians recognized in the Best Doctors database have reviewed tens
of thousands of patient cases and have provided invaluable diagnostic
and treatment recommendations.
Last year Dr. Hunter was named president of The Arthroscopy Association
of North America (AANA). He has been an AANA member for more than 30 years
and has served in various leadership roles. He continues to represent
the association at academic conferences around the world.
Dr. Hunter is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon
who specializes in treating knee and shoulder conditions, performing arthroscopic
and open repair of torn ligaments, and managing athletic injuries. Every
fall, Dr. Hunter teaches two highly sought-after shoulder and knee clinics
for medical professionals in Colorado that focus on honing anatomy skills
and exam techniques.
Before joining HRRMC's medical staff in 2009, Dr. Hunter was director
of the Division of Sports Medicine for the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He also served as the orthopedic
surgeon for the University of Arizona's intercollegiate athletics
and as team doctor for the Chicago White Sox during their spring training.
Prior to that, he spent 14 years with an orthopedic group in Aspen.
“Dr. Hunter is a great asset to our medical team. We are grateful
to have a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon recognized year after
year as a leading physician in the U.S.,” said hospital CEO Robert Morasko.
