Mammoth Orthopedic Institute

mammoth orthopaedic institute


Drs. Karch and Crall founded Mammoth Orthopedic Institute with the vision of advancing and integrating musculoskeletal care in the Eastern Sierra. With the addition of Dr. Gilmer in 2014 and Dr. Knecht in 2019 and our partners from the Torrey Pines Orthopedic Group in San Diego, we offer a full- service orthopedic department.

The physicians and staff at Mammoth Orthopedic Institute strive to provide the best orthopedic care possible to the residents and visitors of the Eastern Sierra. Like most residents here, our staff likes to play too! We understand what it’s like to be out of the game because of an injury. Our mission is to get you back to the things you love as fast as possible.

The Institute also sponsors educational meetings, research and teaching, to maintain academic vigor in their approach to treating patients.

Our team of surgeons, physicians, physician assistants, athletic trainers, orthopedic technologists, radiologist technologist and our entire office staff consider it a privilege to work with the residents and visitors to this area. Our pledge is to provide meticulous care, in an accessible, down-to-earth environment this area is known for.
