Dr. Adam Lindsay is a Board eligilbe orthopaedic surgeon. During residency at the University of Southern California, Dr. Lindsay spent countless hours at the renowned Los Angeles County Hospital, one of the largest level 1 trauma centers on the West Coast. He received extensive training in the care of fractures, soft tissue injuries, and arthroplasty.

After residency, he pursued a Sports Medicine fellowship at the University of Colorado, where he completed over 700 cases under the guidance of world-renowned orthopaedists. It was there he honed skills in arthroscopy and shoulder arthroplasty (replacements), and developed a passion for complex knee, hip, and shoulder pathology.

Recently, Dr. Lindsay had the opportunity of a lifetime to move to the Gunnison Valley and practice with VSON/Alpine.  Dr. Lindsay is thrilled to be working alongside renowned Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Gloria Beim, and to have the opportunity to work and live in a region that he loves. He is looking forward to providing for a thriving and growing community and could not be more honored to serve this area.

When not in clinic or the operating room, Dr. Lindsay can usually be found out with his wife Rachelle and dog Khione, mountain biking the endless trails around the Valley, and skiing (both on resort and backcountry) every chance he can get.
