Bio Summary

Dr. Peter Ross is an Orthopaedic Surgeon who is Board Certified in both Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. Upon completing his Air Force commitment in 2001 at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, he stayed in Alaska and went into private practice in Soldotna, on the Kenai Peninsula. After 16 wonderful years in the Great White North, he and his family made the decision to return to Texas to thaw out and be closer to family.

Dr. Ross is very excited for the opportunity to join the Dedicated Orthopedic Center and brings a wealth of experience in arthroscopic treatment of orthopaedic sports injuries and degenerative conditions and joint replacement surgery. “I believe in personalized treatment based on the nature of the problem and the patient’s unique circumstances. My greatest satisfaction comes from the successful return of an individual to an active lifestyle. Life is Motion.”
