Orthopedic Surgeons

Blake Gillette, M.D.

I’m an orthopedic surgeon providing comprehensive orthopedic care to children and adults. I really enjoy helping people recover from sports injuries and specialize in using minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle so my patients can recover faster and with minimal pain. I’ve worked with athletes at all levels, including professional athletes in the NBA, NFL, MLB, and PGA. I graduated from the University of Utah and then attended The Ohio State University for medical school. After graduation, I completed an orthopedic surgery residency at the Mayo Clinic and trained with world-renowned experts and published multiple articles in joint replacement surgery and sports medicine. I completed an additional year of specialized training in sports medicine and arthroscopy at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute and have published textbook chapters focusing on the shoulder including complex rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon injuries.


Daniel Hoopes, M.D.

Dr. Hoopes focuses on surgical and non-operative treatments of lower extremity injuries, especially those involving the foot and ankle. Dr. Hoopes has degrees in Microbiology (BS), Business Management (Minor), and Information Technology (MS) from Brigham Young University. He then earned his MD degree from the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Hoopes then completed an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque. His Fellowship sub-specialty training in Foot and Ankle at the University of Washington and Harborview Medical Centers in Seattle, WA allowed him to work with the most knowledgeable and venerated surgeons in this unique aspect of Orthopaedic Surgery. By taking the time and effort to figure out why a patient has their injury, Dr. Hoopes hopes to not only treat the current symptoms but also the root cause of the condition. This unique approach to medicine sets Dr. Hoopes apart from the many doctors and physicians who eagerly jump on a diagnosis and offer operations that may provide some temporary relief, but often lead to a recurrence of the original problem as time passes.


Matt Poulsen, M.D.

Dr. Matthew Poulsen is a Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in Sports Medicine, with a primary focus on knee and shoulder surgery. Dr. Poulsen focuses on surgical and non-surgical treatments for adult and pediatric sports medicine-type injuries, including fractures. After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology at Brigham Young University (BYU), he earned his Doctor of Medicine degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He then completed his Orthopedic Surgery Residency at the University of Missouri in Kansas City. Next, he completed his Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship at the University of Kentucky, where he worked closely with the university’s sports teams and physicians. While in Kentucky, Dr. Poulsen learned the latest techniques relating to knee and shoulder surgery.
