Now Seeing New Patients – Mesa View welcomes new Orthopedic / Hand Surgeon to Mesquite!
Mesa View Regional Hospital in conjunction with Mesa View Medical Group is proud to welcome Douglas J. Seip, M.D., Board Certified Orthopedic/Hand Surgeon, to the medical community in Mesquite!
Now seeing new patients, Dr. Seip is providing full-time orthopedic services right here in Mesquite. He comes to Mesquite from the Las Vegas valley, where he has been elected by his peers for inclusion in “Best Doctors in America”, from 1996 to 2012. Having grown up in small-town Indiana, he is pleased to return to a smaller community environment for his practice.
Dr. Seip is an expert in the latest procedures and techniques for a host of orthopedic procedures including total hip replacement, total knee replacement, computer-assisted surgery, minimally invasive knee replacement, shoulder arthroscopy, knee arthroscopy and complex wrist and hand surgeries.
He received his medical degree from the Indiana School of Medicine in Indianapolis then completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Following that he earned a second residency in hand and trauma surgery from the University of Louisville, Kentucky School of Medicine and is also fellowship trained in hand surgery.
As an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Seip’s focus is the treatment and prevention of injuries to the musculoskeletal system. He also believes the work of an orthopedic physician involves the body’s entire musculoskeletal system including bones, muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. Orthopedic problems may be congenital (from birth), degenerative due to aging or disease, from an accident, or from over-use.
As a philosophy of care, Dr. Seip regards his patients as part of his extended family and believes that each patient is entitled to the very best care he has to offer. Honest two-way communication is one of his primary concerns, and by sharing information he works to find solutions and resolve the problems that bring patients to him.
