About Dr. Behrens
He is known as a compassionate, thorough, and trusted orthopedic surgeon, he cared for thousands of patients in Casper and throughout Wyoming. His character was shaped early on by the courage and determination required of a Navy doctor serving with the Marines in Vietnam. It continues today with his dedication to assisting our military veterans through programs such as the Semper Fi Odyssey transition program and by mentoring active duty servicemen and women.
