Dr. Steven W. Meier is currently treating patients in Honduras with the quality patient care that Meier Orthopedic Sports Medicine is known to provide.

Dr Steven W Meier

Dr. Steven W. Meier is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with special training in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. He founded Meier Orthopedic Sports Medicine in June of 2006 to provide exceptional healthcare to his patients and research the latest in surgical innovation.
Dr. Meier is a leader in his field in the surgical treatment of shoulder conditions and knee conditions, as well as arthroscopic surgical techniques. Dr. Meier uses a multi-faceted approach to patient treatment. Dr. Meier believes that in order to achieve the best possible outcome for any particular patient, a strategic combination of surgical and non-surgical techniques should be utilized. He often uses:
Strengthening and exercise programs
Formal physical therapy and rehabilitation
Minimally-invasive surgery Visit Meir Orthopedic Sports Medicine Website

The regenerative treatment involves injecting a solution into weakened joints, ligaments, and tendons to alleviate pain and stimulate the growth of healthy tissue.

Dr. Meier and his fellow participants are seeing patients at the trip’s temporary clinics in LaCeiba, Olanchito, and Tela. They begin consultation around 8 o’clock every morning, helping individuals who have often lined up for treatment hours before. Once work is done for the day group members meet for dinner and lectures on the newest advancements in prolotherapy.

Joint pain, ligament issues and tendonitis may be effectively treated with prolotherapy and recovery time is generally shorter and less complicated than other surgical rehabilitation. Dr. Meier utilizes prolotherapy in his private practice to aid professional athletes and high-performance individuals who need to keep up with rigorous schedules.

Upon his return on March 23rd, Dr. Meier will bring back an even keener sense of the most current applications of prolotherapy for his patients at home.

The Hackett Hemwall Foundation has been working in Honduras since 1969, fostering a sense of community through decades of reliable care for every person who could benefit from prolotherapy. Although this is his first time in Honduras with the Hackett Hemwall Foundation, Dr. Meier has previously taught and performed surgery internationally, including Europe, Asia, South America and Africa.

In 15 years of medical practice Dr. Meier proves his commitment to caring for patients with the most leading-edge medicine. His ongoing work to heal through multiple therapeutic techniques exemplifies how Dr. Meier’s medical mission is #KeepingYouActive.
