SKILL, CARE & KNOWLEDGE THAT ONLY DUAL-FELLOWSHIP TRAINING BRINGS

Dr. Winegar’s first fellowship in Pittsburgh focused on orthopedic trauma,  treating the most complex and severe injuries affecting bones and joints. He developed a sharp eye for the knee, so he pursued a second fellowship dedicated to it, this time in Northern Idaho and Spokane, Washington. With the expertise of Dr. Jeffrey Lyman and Dr. Tim Lovell, he performed hundreds of knee surgeries: complex total knee revisions, replacements using robotics and computer navigation, ACL reconstructions, meniscus tears, sports-related injuries and much more. 

If a knee operation exists, odds are Dr. Winegar can successfully perform it, and his extensive fellowship training is a key reason.

REVIEWS

This is a wonderful place friendly helpful I’m very polite they made me feel at ease each one of them and took the time to explain everything to me and vivid detail I enjoy going there because I know it’s always going to be good positive and uplifting recommended to anybody and everybody.
Spencer H.
Dr. Winegar has a great staff of professionals who provided great support through every step of my surgical journey. I was impressed with their responsiveness and optimism regarding the surgical process and post surgical support.
Stacy P.
Had first knee done 1 April and am back for the second scheduled in a little over a week. They work wonders. It’s great having one good knee can’t wait for the second.
James M.
All the Blackrock staff were very kind and efficient. The front desk staff and nursing staff were great. The x-ray tech was such an encourager and very efficent too- everyone made us feel at ease and among friends!
Suzy D.
Excellent service! I am a physical therapist and had seen how great Dr. Winegar’s patients had done after a total knee replacement, so I decided to send my mother to him for her TKA and she also had a great outcome- she was walking a mile without an issue 2.5 weeks after surgery! Thank you BlackRock Orthopedics!

WHY THE NAME BLACKROCK?

This story comes straight from Dr. Winegar, and explains his passion for getting his patients back to the things they love.

During my first year in medical school I got a package from my dad containing three elements. The first was a piece of wood—brown, rough and splintery. The second was petrified wood, about the same size and color but harder and heavier. The last was unlike the others. It was shiny, black and polished mirror smooth.

My dad is a hard-core rock hound. He cuts and polishes thousands of them. Knowing the typical struggles of medical school and especially with a young family, he wrote a letter using these three objects to illustrate a principle I have never forgotten.

He observed that even though life can be difficult and overwhelming, through these experiences we change. We become better and stronger. He explained that the shiny black rock had previously been a piece of wood. After being buried, pressured, stressed and aged it became petrified.

The petrified wood was further refined by polishing it in a tumbler, causing it to strike against other rocks thus chipping off the rough edges. After months of changing the type of polishing material, the petrified wood was transformed into a beautiful, black rock. Without all the pain and refinement its true beauty would never have emerged.

Life takes hard work and can be overwhelming but these difficult experiences can cause us to change and become better. Stronger.

My dad wrote this letter to help me understand that it was okay to go through this polishing process. Even though the path was long and hard, it would be worth it.

This is the philosophy of Blackrock Orthopedics. The formulas are the same for my patients. Together we can get through hard things. Injuries, pains, aging—life in general can wear on us. When these issues are related to orthopedic pain, we work together to help our patients get through these difficulties and get back to the beauty of living. We want to help patients return as soon as possible to the things they love— sports, family activities, work, hobbies and interests. We want to see them return to the beautiful, polishing process of life.
