Schedule Your Consultation
Dr. Larson knew from an early age he wanted to be a doctor. A picture when he was three years old shows him wearing a white doctor’s coat and a play stethoscope around his neck. Upon receiving his doctorate of medicine from the University of Utah, he was able to don that white coat for real. He continued his Orthopaedic training at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, but he has never stopped learning and expanding his knowledge of medicine. Dr. Larson has been at the forefront of the profession. He is a leader in meniscal allograft and was the first surgeon in Utah to use Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation, where the patient’s own cartilage is grown in a lab than implanted back in to their knee. Dr. Larson continues to research and work as a consultant to develop new technology to improve on procedures and to aid in patient recovery. Dr. Larson has made it his life’s pursuit to help people with their musculoskeletal needs. At AOS he has found the perfect match for this desire.
