Granite Orthopaedics

Richard Bassett, DO

Orthopedic Surgeon Specializing in Total and Reconstructive Joints

“I started my career as a physical therapist and enjoyed working with patients who had hip and knee replacements, so I decided to go back to school to specialize in hip and knee arthroplasty as an orthopedic surgeon. I enjoy seeing my patients improve their function and daily activities with less pain.”

“I want my patients to understand their specific orthopaedic condition and provide them with all alternatives of care, including all the available conservative and surgical options. I hope to give my patients improved quality of life with less pain.”

In his free time, Dr. Bassett enjoys following the stock market. He likes boating and snow skiing with his family as well as watching his children in their sporting events.
