Doctors Michael Archibeck and Charles Pribyl were ranked second and third, respectively, in this year’s Top Doctors annual survey, put on by Albuquerque the Magazine. Dr. Pribyl has previously won the distinction of top orthopaedic doctor in Albuquerque more than once over the last few years. We are proud of both physicians and are glad to see their reputation carries on outside the building, among their peers and the community. Here is a link to the magazine’s web page:
Dr. Joshua T. Carothers was awarded the 2014 British Traveling Fellowship recently by the Hip Society’s Fellowship and Mentorship Committee. The opportunity allows him to travel to Great Britain for a month to visit host institutions and share ideas. Carothers joined New Mexico Orthopaedics in 2008 and quickly became one of the practice’s experts in total joint replacement, including hip and knee procedures.
This is a prestigious recognition of Dr. Carothers’ work in area of hip surgery and reconstruction, as the Hip Society is a small group of hip reconstruction surgeons in the U.S., with a very selective membership. In fact, Dr. Carothers is only the second physician in New Mexico to be invited to do the traveling fellowship. Dr. Carothers commented, “I am honored at having been selected, as only two young surgeons per year are chosen.”
Qualified applicants have to be fellowship-trained in hip surgery, be a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, and demonstrate a willingness to advance hip surgery via research, publications, and/or presentations.
Dr. Carothers also was ranked first in his class in medical school and did his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Duke University. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Carothers as a practicing hip and knee surgeon in the state of New Mexico.
New Mexico Orthopaedics employees plan to run/walk at this year’s Run for the Zoo, on Sunday, May 4th, at the Rio Grande Zoo. In addition to our team of runners, NMO will have an exhibitor booth near the start/finish line, along with other sponsors of this year’s event. Please come by our booth and say hello. We congratulate all the runners in this year’s event and want to remind you that we actively treat all types of sports injuries, including injuries related to running and jogging.
One of our physicians, Dr. Joshua Carothers, recently had an article published on the Op-Ed section of the Albuquerque Journal. We hope you’ll take time to read his thoughtful piece on the value of orthopedic treatment.
Dr. Michael Archibeck was recently named Top Orthopedic Doctor in Albuquerque 2015 in the March issue of Albuquerque the Magazine. Dr. Archibeck received this recognition from his peers, who voted for the top physicians in all specialties of medicine. You can read more about Dr. Archibeck in this month’s edition of Albuquerque the Magazine/Top Docs. Congratulations Dr. Archibeck!
New Mexico Orthopaedics is excited to announce that we are opening a new west side clinic and construction is well underway!
The clinic, located at 2101 Unser Blvd. SE, in Rio Rancho, will service our patients living and working in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque’s west side. We are expecting to open our doors this June and will be able to provide most services our patients receive at our main clinic in downtown Albuquerque. The new site will also house our west side physical therapy office, which will be relocating from its current facility off of highway 528 and Barbara Loop.
Additionally, we are pleased to announce that doctors Hugh Brock and Kevin McGee will be joining New Mexico Orthopaedics on June 1, 2015, and will be the main physicians treating patients out of the west side clinic. Dr. McGee specializes in sports medicine orthopedics while Dr. Brock specializes in total joint replacements. Other New Mexico Orthopaedics physicians plan to see patients on the west side as well.
The new west side clinic will be open Monday through Friday, from 8am to 5pm. You can follow the progress of our building’s construction by clicking on this link: http://1drv.ms/1DwvWBR. Check back frequently for updates on our progress!
