Athlete healthcare services

Sports medicine is specifically designed to treat accidents related to athletic activity.

Maintaining an active sports lifestyle is usually great for your health overall, but it also puts great strain on your bones and muscles, and puts you at greater risk of injury.

Meet the sports medicine team

Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center’s orthopedic sports medicine center is led by Dr. Robert Hunter. Dr. Hunter is a nationally recognized orthopedic surgeon who has written and lectured extensively on sports health. Supporting Dr. Hunter are experienced physician assistants and athletic trainers. Their team believes in creating a close relationship with patients that encourages open communication. In this way our staff can better understand the patient’s goals and plan out treatment with their objectives in mind.

Dr. Hunter's sports medicine practice complements Dr. Steven Jones' total joint replacement practice in the HRRMC Orthopedic Center of Excellence. When patients require a joint implant, we discuss their lifestyle and work collaboratively to design a replacement that meets their criteria.
