Getting You Back to Your Alaskan Lifestyle

Small Practice, Personalized Orthopedic Care

Cutting Edge Orthopedics With a Refreshingly Human Approach

Alaska Orthopedic Specialists was founded in 2021 as a merger combining the expertise of Alaska Hand-Elbow-Shoulder (AKHES) and Rhyneer Caylor Clinic. Our focus continues to be personalized, orthopedic care for you and your family, but now we have even more experienced providers to attend to all your needs.

Our friendly staff welcomes patients of all ages — from infants to elderly adults. We offer comprehensive services, including orthopedic diagnoses and treatment for both lower and upper extremities, fractures, joint replacement, joint revision surgery, and sports medicine. Our providers offer a combined specialty to give you the best care in Alaska so you can get back to the active lifestyle you know and love.

Our Values

We strive to care for each of our patients like family. We make it our mission to not just fix injuries and get patients out the door but to heal people. You’ll have the chance to meet with your doctor from the first visit and always be treated with respect. We know you are more than the boxes checked on a form. Don’t be boxed in.

I wish there was a better way to thank you and your entire staff: front, middle, and back, for all you have done for us. Your office has set the bar incredibly high for any and all future medical professionals I will deal with in the future. Each and every member of your staff has been kind and patient, courteous and helpful in every interaction we had, for two years. Thank you all very much!
