Allred

Darin W. Allred M.D.

Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr. Darin W. Allred’s comprehensive orthopaedic medical practice includes surgical, arthroscopic, and non-surgical options to treat conditions related to the knee, shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, foot, and ankle. In practice for 17 years, Dr. Allred attended medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at University of Oklahoma Health Science Center in Oklahoma City, completing his Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy fellowship in San Diego, California.

“My love of orthopedics started in high school. I worked in the OR transporting patients and cleaning the floors between surgeries.  When I saw my first orthopedic surgery, I was hooked. It just took one surgery,” he said.

Dr. Allred was born in Utah and grew up in a small town in Southeast Texas. He left to start his medical career which took him across the United States. The first 15 years of his career were spent in Denver, Colorado where he maintained a busy practice treating complex patients that were referred by other orthopedic surgeons. He also spent time teaching and training surgeons from across the world at arthroscopy conferences designed to help them improve their surgical skills. Eventually, he realizing he missed small towns and the people in them, so he made a career change. He returned to Utah and currently flies to smaller towns in Nevada and Wyoming to perform surgery.

During his career, Dr. Allred enjoyed working with collegiate and professional teams such as the Oklahoma Sooners and San Diego Padres. However, he admits his passion revolves around bringing his experience and expertise to patients in small towns who might not otherwise receive the top-level of orthopaedic care he provides without travelling long distances to bigger metropolitan areas.  Keeping his patients’ active members in their own communities is a top priority for Dr. Allred.

“My goal in life is about how many people I can I help, how many lives can I change and can I have a good time doing it. It is really more about helping people and connecting with them and feeling like I can make a difference.”

Dr. Allred is an active member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Arthroscopy Association of North America, and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. He will add his experience and expertise to the SOSI Rock Springs, Wyoming office location.
