David Allmacher, MDKnee and Hip Replacement Surgeon
Dr. David Allmacher joined Missoula Bone & Joint in 2014 after years of practice following medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and completing his internship and residency at the University of Iowa. He specializes in total joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee. This type of surgery removes damaged pieces of the joint and replaces them with alternatives called prosthetics. These devices are a replacement for the original joint, which mimic the natural movement and function of the joint. Ultimately, this allows pain free movement and a return to activities that may have been stopped as a result of hip pain or knee pain.
While it can be intimidating or scary to undergo surgery, it helps to know you are working with a surgeon who is up to speed on the latest research. His experience and individual evaluation of each patient has benefited many active people over the years. Dr. Allmacher likes to discuss all treatment options with his patients and help them choose the most appropriate plan. The right time for a joint replacement surgery is typically when the hip or knee pain is stopping you from enjoying your normal activities.
Dr. Allmacher also has expertise in revision joint replacement of the hip and knee. That means that if the initial joint replacement wears out, he can help you through this more complex replacement surgery as well. Wear on joint replacements is normal over time with typical use, so just like with your car’s brakes or your home’s furnace, these parts might need to be replaced at some point. That’s why working with a skilled surgeon like Dr. Allmacher is especially important for this procedure. He will discuss your options and the techniques available to give you the smoothest experience and help you down the route to quickest healing.
Dr. Allmacher is also vested in the well-being of our Missoula community. He is an active recreationist; enjoying skiing, mountain biking and trail running. He and his wife have three active children, so you may also see him on the sidelines of soccer games and other community activities.
