Mitchell S. Wagner, MD, PLLC
I became interested in a career in medicine early on in my college career at the University of New Mexico, where I earned a degree in Physics/Biochemistry. Even before starting my medical school training, I had a strong interest in Orthopedic Surgery, since I enjoyed working with my hands and being able to apply some of the physics I learned in college.
So, I went on to study medicine at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, followed by my orthopedic residency training at The Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. After finishing my residency training, I did additional fellowship training in orthopedic surgery and orthopedic trauma at Tampa General Hospital and New York Medical College.
I have practiced orthopedic surgery for over 15 years in Phoenix and Scottsdale before deciding to move to Wickenburg to help develop an orthopedic surgery program. My decision to practice in Wickenburg was based on my desire to provide a service to a community in need. Wickenburg and the surrounding areas have an abundance of friendly, active senior citizens who should not have to travel all the way to Phoenix to receive orthopedic care.
It has been my pleasure to be part of what is developing into a very successful surgical program in a progressive small community hospital.
