His interests include surgical and non-surgical management of fractures and traumatic musculoskeletal injuries involving the upper and lower extremities, periprosthetic fractures (fractures around hip and knee replacements), as well as complex fractures involving the pelvis and acetabulum.

Patient Testimonials

April 1, 2024

June M.

Dr. Gilbertson and his team are incredibly knowledgeable. They took the time to answer all of my questions. I did not feel rushed and the team was very welcoming. I would highly recommend Dr. Gilbertson and his team. His assistant, Amy, was so helpful. She returned my calls in a timely matter and was very personable.

Wayne F.

I’m so grateful for the excellent care I received from Dr. Gilbertson after I fell and rebroke my hip and femur. Because I was a trauma surgery patient, I was apprehensive about the surgery and who my surgeon would be. I realized how fortunate I was that Dr. Gilbertson was the trauma surgeon on call. My recovery has been challenging, but the care received from TCO staff has been great. Dr. Gilbertson’s bedside manner is very good. I highly recommend him and TCO.

Michelle S.

I was referred to Dr. Gilbertson after a fall, which resulted in the fracture of my proximal humerus. His kindness and calm, but confident, demeanor were so very appreciated throughout this process. Very early on we had to switch course from a natural healing approach to proceeding with surgery. I never second guessed his plan, but have looked to him frequently for advice and reassurance regarding my progress as well as struggles. Dr. Gilbertson’s bedside manner is top notch and I’ve truly never encountered a doctor with his level of compassion.
