Sun City Orthopaedic’s First Steps
Sun City Orthopaedic & Hand Surgery Specialists was established by Dr. Eric Sides in 2012. Dr. Sides had already practiced for the El Paso Orthopaedics Surgery Group for over 16 years when he decided to go out on his own. Dr. Sides ran Sun City Orthopaedic by himself for 5 years. But, a few years later, Dr. Sides discussed the possibility of Dr. Daniel Vande Lune, a fellow residency student, perhaps moving down to the Southwest to join Dr. Sides at his practice. Just a few months later, what they discussed during this chat came to fruition!
How Our Team Came To Be
On April 18th, 2016, Dr. Vande Lune moved from Iowa to El Paso to join Dr. Sides at Sun City Orthopaedics. Their team welcomed another specialist, Dr. Paul Chubb, on April 25th of the same year. In November, Dr. Michael Mrochek split from the El Paso Orthopaedics Surgery Group and joined Sun City Orthopaedic. Today, the team is able to see patients on the same day or the very next day. Sun City Orthopaedic & Hand Surgery Specialists is made up of highly experienced surgeons. Their practice is able to treat all aspects of orthopaedic surgery and rehabilitation. Simply put, the Sun City Orthopaedic team is able to see and treat everything.
What Exactly is Orthopaedic Surgery?
Orthopaedic surgery deals with injuries, disorders, or diseases of the body’s musculoskeletal system. The Sun City Orthopaedic team specializes in all aspects of orthopaedic surgery. It’s important for patients to know that type of surgery can be categorized as “elective surgery.” This means that, although the surgery is beneficial for the patient, it does not have to be done at any particular time. This freedom allows patients to schedule their surgery at their leisure. In many instances, surgery won’t be necessary. There are various treatment options available, such as rehabilitation and medications that can restore your musculoskeletal system. If surgery becomes a necessity, you can rest easy knowing it won’t be required as an emergency. You can schedule your surgery whenever you so choose. Our team will be glad to help guide you throughout the entire process. We accept all forms of insurance as well. Contact us today to learn more about what we have to offer!
