    History of Mercy Orthopedic Associates

    Mercy Orthopedic Associates was founded in 1962 under the name Durango Orthopedic Associates. As the first orthopedic practice in the Four Corners, it was established by Dr. William Krauser whose commitment to providing the highest standard of orthopedic care to the community has remained unchanged.

    In the sixty years since inception, Durango Orthopedic Associates and Mercy Regional Medical Center have worked closely to improve patient experience and clinical quality of orthopedic care. Mercy’s Orthopedic Center of Excellence was born from a collaborative effort between the hospital and physicians to enhance clinical outcomes and customer service provided to patients who receive care at both the physician clinic and the hospital. In 2015, physicians and staff of Durango Orthopedics joined the new specialty clinic Mercy Orthopedic Associates. Today, the clinic has evolved into a technologically advanced, patient focused center of excellence in orthopedic care, benefiting thousands of patients in the Four Corners region.
