Welcome to High Plains Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, the practice of Dr. Mel Huebner. We hope that this site will provide useful information for you about our practice and the services we offer. Our goal is to provide you with an expert diagnosis and compassionate care for your orthopedic needs. As a conservative orthopedic physician and surgeon, I emphasize nonoperative modalities combined with surgery when appropriate. As much as I enjoy being a surgeon, the majority of our patients get better without surgery. My fulfillment as an orthopedic specialist comes from direct and personal involvement with you, our patient, from first to last. Because of this, High Plains Orthopedics and Sports Medicine does not employ mid-level orthopedic providers. I look forward to personally meeting you and being involved with the diagnosis, treatment, and healing of your bone and joint needs.
