Mark Ritter

Specialist in Orthopedic Sports Medicine & Trauma

Dr. Mark Ritter honed his skills as a team physician in a sports arena destined to create trauma: the American Hockey league with the Providence Bruins. He continually applies lessons learned from treating serious athletes to his work with orthopedic patients who may never have set foot on a field or court.

Dr. Ritter received his bachelor’s degree from Luther College, where he was an all-star swimmer and swim team captain. He received his medical degree from the University of Iowa School of Medicine in 1999.

He completed both his orthopedic residency and orthopedic trauma fellowship at Brown University, and then accepted a sports medicine and arthroscopy fellowship with Dr. James Tasto and Dr. James Esch at the University of California in San Diego. He gained more sideline experience with the San Diego Padres at San Diego State University, and the San Diego Gulls.

Dr. Ritter uses downtime to read, travel, and spend time with his children. He is happily married to Hadley Ritter, MD, an endocrine surgeon who specializes in thyroid and parathyroid cancer cases. They are the proud parents of two girls and a boy.
