    Eric Freeh, D.O.

    Meet Dr. Freeh | Specialties | Education | Memberships | Member

    image to comeEric J Freeh, D.O. arrived from Phoenix in 1996, he currently practices with New Mexico Bone and Joint Institute. He is a Board Certified orthopedic surgeon, with subspecialty fellowship training in trauma and fracture care. He has achieved national recognition as a true expert in the field. As a faculty member of the International Trauma Society, the AO Foundation (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen), he is frequently invited to give lectures and instruction on trauma care and surgical technique to orthopedic residents and surgeons. You can always count on Dr. Freeh understanding the most current treatment options available in the world today. Right here in Alamogordo you can truly expect world class care!

    Dr. Freeh actually assisted in the training process of Dr. Dodson. They spent time together in Phoenix while Dr. Dodson was in medical school. They were both more than ecstatic to renew their friendship as peers when Dr. Freeh relocated to Alamogordo from his very successful practice in Arizona. His experience in Phoenix was invaluable as a member of the orthopedic group that took care of the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Coyotes, spring training camp for the Oakland A's and the Seattle Mariners, as well as many local high schools and colleges.

    Along with his highly regarded fracture care treatment, Dr. Freeh also enjoys many other aspects of orthopedic surgery including sports medicine. He is the only surgeon in this area that has mastered arthroscopy of the shoulder. He also performs arthroscopy of the knee and enjoys surgery of the hands and upper extremities, frequently taking care of such problems as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, ganglion cysts, arthritis, meniscal tears and ligamentous injuries.

    Dr. Freeh is one of the founding members of the Southern New Mexico Surgery Center, a two time winner of the APEX Quality Award from CTQ solutions. His professional ratings from patients are quite exemplary. Dr. Freeh is known in the area as a surgeon that takes time to listen. He then creates an orthopedic game plan with the patient that strives to achieve rapid healing and return to routine activities such as sports, hobbies and occupation.

    For those that don't know, Dr. Freeh is an excellent musician, playing many string instruments such as guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele. He has truly enjoyed passing on that love to his children. His knowledge base on antique cars is also impressive, and in addition to knowing about cars, he enjoys his hobby of fixing up and rebuilding cars of many types. This is also a great source of "family time" for him.
