Christopher M Untch, MD

Dr. Untch is a board-certified general orthopedic surgeon. He received his undergraduate bachelor of science degree from the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio in 1990. He then went on to attend medical school at the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. He completed orthopedic surgery residency training at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon, in 2005. After serving over 20 years as a medical officer in the US Air Force, he decided to transition to private practice and he joined Arizona Orthopedics in January 2015.

Dr. Untch has interest and experience in arthroscopy and sports medicine, joint replacement surgery, fractures of the extremities, and various other general musculoskeletal conditions. His practice philosophy is focused on involving the patient and family in their care, ensuring the patient understands their condition and the treatment options and fully participates in their treatment plan. He believes in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. He strives to combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide his patients with the best orthopedic care possible.
