Scott Sorenson, MD Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon

Scott Sorenson, M.D., is a board certified and fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon providing general orthopedic surgery care; including shoulder, knee and ankle sports injuries, hip and knee replacement surgery, scoliosis surgery and pediatric fracture management and deformity correction.

After fellowship he worked as an Assistant Professor at the Penn State Department of Orthopedic Surgery, where he received high marks as an outstanding instructor for orthopedic surgery residents and medical students. He also received awards for patient satisfaction scores in/above the 99th percentile nationally. Dr. Sorenson then worked at the Andrews Institute Children’s Health Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center in Plano, TX where he served as the Chief of Orthopedics immediately prior to moving to Wyoming. Subsequently, he spent an additional year training and gaining increased education in hip and knee replacement surgery. He is now proud to partner with Dr. Israelsen in performing hip and knee arthroplasty at the only Blue Cross/Blue Shield Center of Distinction for joint replacement surgery in the state.  Together they created the Wyoming Joint Replacement Center.

Dr. Sorenson has been the team physician for large high school football and lacrosse teams.  He is accustomed to being on the sidelines during peak sport seasons working with athletic trainers and treating sports injuries.

Uniquely, Dr. Sorenson is the only orthopedic surgeon that is fellowship trained in pediatric orthopedic surgery that resides in the state of Wyoming.  This additional training allows him to expertly treat children’s fractures, youth sports injuries, adolescent ACL injuries, clubfeet, scoliosis and other congenital deformities that would otherwise necessitate long distance travel for local families.

Dr. Sorenson has a special understanding for orthopedic patients as he has had numerous lower extremity surgeries to treat a congenital limb deformity. This understanding of how a patient feels drives his dedication to improving their ability to participate in sports and other physical activities.

He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America, Pediatric Research in Sports Medicine, and the AOA Emerging Leaders. His research has been published in various orthopedic journals.

In his free time, he enjoys outdoor activities such as boating, hiking and mountain biking. His hobbies also include guitar playing and quartet singing. His five children are heavily involved in youth sports so when he is not working, he is usually at a sporting event with his wife cheering for them. He speaks English and German.
