FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Dr. Bret Peterson of the Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies (OCR) has achieved board certification in orthopaedic surgery.

Dr. Peterson recently passed his board certification examination administered by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. The exam consists of a lengthy written exam and an intensive interview and review of patients’ surgeries.

He has patient appointments at OCR’s offices in in Fort Collins and Loveland.

Dr. Peterson, a native of Fort Collins and graduate of Rocky Mountain High School, joined OCR in August 2013 as a specialist in surgery for the hand and upper extremity (arm, wrist, elbow).

Prior to joining OCR, he completed a fellowship training program in hand and upper extremity at the University of Washington in Seattle (2012-2013).  Fellowships provide a sixth year of highly specialized training for orthopaedic surgeons following the completion of their residency program. The additional training gives a surgeon the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge and skills in their area of interest.

Dr. Peterson completed his five-year orthopaedic surgery residency at Duke University in Durham, NC (2007-12). He earned his medical degree from the University of Colorado (2003-2007), where he served as president of his class for four years. He also obtained his undergraduate degree from CU (1999-2003).
