A few decades ago, Southern New Mexico was far behind the times in terms of quality specialized healthcare of any kind, let alone orthopaedic care. Patients had to travel to El Paso or Albuquerque to address their unmet medical needs. Today however, there is no shortage of experts in the field of orthopaedic services.
Founded by Dr. Robert Stack, Las Cruces Orthopaedic Associates is currently one of the top providers of comprehensive orthopaedic care in the southwest and is also the largest orthopaedic group in Southern New Mexico. From conservative to surgical treatments, MRI imaging, pharmacy and custom bracing; Las Cruces Orthopaedic Associates offers a full spectrum of care.
The six board certified and fellowship-trained physicians who comprise Las Cruces Orthopaedic Associates have a philosophy of educating patients to help maximize their quality of life and enhance physical activity. Each of them is considered an expert in their field and they all pride themselves on offering the most up to date treatment options available.
