Nationally Recognized Orthopedic Surgeon Joins Ivinson
Ivinson Welcomes Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Vivek Agrawal
Ivinson’s new orthopedic surgeon, Vivek Agrawal, MD, has treated patients across the U.S., in Canada, Argentina, Japan, Germany, New Zealand and now, in Laramie, Wyoming.
Dr. Agrawal is a nationally recognized orthopedic surgeon, named 10 Shoulder Surgeons to Know in America by Becker’s Hospital Review. His work in shoulder surgery and sports medicine has taken him around the globe to see patients as far as Saudi Arabia and Australia.
“Dr. Agrawal is highly trained in his field of expertise, and we are excited to offer a specialist of his caliber at Ivinson,” says Chief Executive Officer Doug Faus. “We are proud to offer specialized providers who can provide world-class care right here at Ivinson. Dr. Agrawal’s expertise in his field makes him a great addition to Ivinson and to the greater Laramie community.”
Dr. Agrawal’s interest in orthopedic care was prompted by his own injury. A shoulder injury in a competitive tennis match led him to find a lack of available advanced shoulder treatment options. He received his undergraduate degree from the University Of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Dr. Agrawal went on to earn his medical degree at Indiana University, where he then completed his residency in orthopedic surgery.
After a successful shoulder surgery, Dr. Agrawal pursued fellowship training to specialize in Shoulder and Knee Arthroscopy from California Pacific Medical Center. While also serving as a major in the Air Force Reserves, Dr. Agrawal completed visiting clinical fellowships in both France and Switzerland.
In addition to shoulder surgery, Dr. Agrawal takes special interest in seeing patients with complex and difficult to diagnose cases as well as providing a second opinion in cases that may require corrective or revision surgeries.
“The most important thing to me is to take care of my patients,” Dr. Agrawal says. “The highest compliment is to have physicians and patients refer friends and family to me.”
Outside of work, Dr. Agrawal enjoys golfing, mountain biking and cooking. He is looking forward to seeing more of Wyoming and exploring the Rocky Mountains with his wife in their new RV and their dogs.
Dr. Agrawal is currently seeing patients at Ivinson Medical Group, call (307) 755‑4540 to schedule an appointment today.
