Dr. Mark Carlson - Carlson Orthopedic Clinic

Carlson Orthopedic Clinic is a patient-centered complete orthopedic care facility. We strive to practice the art of medicine by establishing meaningful patient-doctor relationships, which means we listen to our patients, examine the affected area, define their problem, and offer solutions. Most diagnostic testing, such as x-ray, ultrasound, MR, and bone density exams, can be conveniently completed on site. Physical therapy assessment and treatment, orthotics and braces, and osteoporosis care are also offered.

Dr. Carlson, a native of Rockford, completed his undergraduate degree at Wake Forest University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, and his medical degree at the Wake Forest School of Medicine. He received his orthopedic surgery training at the North Carolina Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem and Maimonides Medical Center in New York. He has practiced orthopedics in Rockford since 1986. A leader and innovator in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Carlson performed Rockford's first arthroscopic shoulder and knee reconstructions, hand, wrist, and elbow arthroscopy, endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery, hip arthroscopy, and is accomplished in both biologic and prosthetic joint reconstruction. Dr. Carlson believes that the best way to provide the proper treatment for his patients is to be skilled in all the available non operative and operative options, and then educate his patients to help them choose an appropriate course of treatment.
