    • Bill R. of Greybull, Wyoming, was dealing with chronic ankle pain due to arthritis for several years. He managed the pain with medication for some time, later being treated with steroid shots that provided temporary relief. 

    • You may remember Rosie the Robot, the android maid who made life easier for the futuristic Jetson family. While we may be a long way from having our own sophisticated maidbots, many area residents may still long for the simple joy of cleaning their homes themselves but can’t due to severe joint pains and aches. For Sheila Bainter, 71, retired local teacher, grandmother, and chronic-knee-pain sufferer, relief and independence were made possible with a different robot—ROSA—at Casper Orthopedics.

    • As sports competitions move forward for the fall and plans move forward for winter and spring after COVID-19 closures, the Sports Medicine Center doctors at Casper Orthopedics offer health and safety guidance for athletes. Safe, specialized bone, joint and muscle care is available at the practice's locations in Casper and Douglas. Athletes or parents and guardians can call (307) 265-7205 or (888) 317-2343 to schedule a safe in-office appointment.

    • “Dr. Linford was great. The staff was very friendly.”
