Meet Richard D. Schroeder, M.D.


“I am fortunate to be one of those people who can say, ‘I love my job.’ I find so much fulfillment in helping people recover from orthopedic injuries and conditions — particularly fractures, fracture complications and sports-related bone, joint and muscle issues. I enjoy seeing the transformation that takes place and the impact it has on people’s overall physical and mental health. My other passion is advancing orthopedic medicine by interacting with future doctors. My wife and I coordinate a summer mentoring program each year for local pre‑med and medical students. Their excitement for the profession and their energy are contagious.”
