Welcome Dr. Bentley
Ivinson Welcomes Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Roger Bentley
Ivinson’s recently announced orthopedic line, Orthopedics at Ivinson, has welcomed orthopedic surgeon, Roger Bentley, MD, to the group.
Dr. Bentley comes to Ivinson from Montana, where he practiced in a large orthopedic group, specializing in sports medicine and hip arthroscopy.
“We are excited to have a highly trained specialist at Ivinson like Dr. Bentley,” Chief Executive Officer, Doug Faus said. “His expertise is a wonderful addition to our new orthopedic clinic and our community. At his previous practice, Dr. Bentley was able to bring minimally invasive hip surgery options to the Billings community and we are looking forward to introducing this service here in Laramie soon.”
Dr. Bentley completed his undergraduate degree in neuroscience at Brigham Young University in Utah before returning to his home state of Arizona to go to medical school. After completing his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Bentley went on to complete additional sub-specialized training at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute for his fellowship in sports medicine.
“I went to college in Utah and I just fell in love with the mountains and the mountain west. There is so much natural beauty and great people,” Dr. Bentley explained. “My training took me elsewhere – Arizona, Oklahoma, and finally California – but I always knew I would end up back in the Rockies.”
Outside of practicing orthopedic care, Dr. Bentley leads an active lifestyle and enjoys snowboarding, backpacking, rock climbing and hiking. It is his love for staying active that brings him the same satisfaction in his work.
“I think the most rewarding part of being a sports surgeon is seeing patients get back to what they enjoy doing,” Dr. Bentley said. “Watching them go from the frustration of having an injury to the elation they feel once they are back to doing what they love makes it all worth it.”
Dr. Bentley is currently seeing patients at Ivinson Medical Group, call 307−755−4540 to schedule an appointment today.
