Orthopedic Surgery, Hip and Knee Replacement

Dr. Chalmers is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee musculoskeletal care, including primary hip and knee replacement, partial knee replacement, complex and revision hip and knee replacement, and periprosthetic fractures and infections. Dr. Chalmers is trained in manual, computer-navigated, and robotic surgical techniques to achieve individualized patient treatment goals. He uses the latest surgical methods, medical research, and perioperative rapid-recovery and pain management protocols to provide the best possible care and outcomes for his patients.

Dr. Chalmers earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Notre Dame, where he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Science-Business and a minor in Greek and Roman studies. He also received the Senior Award from the College of Science for balanced outstanding academic achievement, leadership, service, and integrity.
