Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Lionel Gottschalk Joins Centura Health – Siena Medical Clinic

Centura Health – Siena Medical Clinic is pleased to welcome Dr. Lionel Gottschalk to its orthopedic staff.

Gottschalk, who will handle sports medicine and general orthopedics three days a week at Siena, has taken over the care previously provided locally by Dr. Clay Greeson.

Gottschalk, who started his new job Jan. 13, specializes in sports medicine, pediatric sports orthopedics and hip preservation, which focuses on repairing and restructuring the labrum in order to avoid hip degenerative disease or a hip replacement for young, active patients.

With training similar to Greeson’s, Gottschalk doesn’t expect there will be many changes within the clinic.

“I mainly want to just try to keep doing what he was doing,” Gottschalk said. “I just have a little bit of extra specialty training in pediatrics, so there might be a few procedures that he didn’t do that I would be doing. I think he was doing a great job, and I want to just kind of keep up what he was doing.”

Gottschalk completed multiple fellowship trainings with the University of Colorado, where he served as a CU sports team physician, and at Children’s Hospital Colorado. As an undergraduate, he was a rugby national champion and two-time NCWA Western Conference wrestling champion.
