Charles A. Peterson II, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty interest and extensive experience in knee and hip replacement, sports medicine, and shoulder surgery. He has been in practice since 1996.

Dr. Peterson believes it is important to listen to his patients, and fully answer their questions. He takes care to understand how an injury or condition is affecting each patient’s daily life and activities, and craft a a treatment plan specifically suited to that patient.

During his training at the Mayo Clinic and Hospital for Special Surgery (New York), he was a team physician for the New York Mets, New York Giants, the Association of Tennis Professionals, and St. John’s University.

Dr. Peterson also has helped lead Proliance Surgeons, sitting on the Board of Directors from 2004 until 2021, and holding the positions of President and Chairman from 2014 to 2022.  He also served as interim CEO from 2017 to 2019, and in 2021.

A lifelong athlete, Dr. Peterson and his wife enjoy all forms of outdoor sports and activities in the Great Northwest. This dovetails nicely with his love of photography.
