Dr. Zachary Thielen, who has been practicing orthopedic surgery in Maui for three years, is opening his own Maui Family Orthopedic Institute in Wailuku. The new clinic begins to receive patients on Monday, October 11.
Dr. Thielen has spent the last three years specializing in total hip and knee replacements. The new clinic provides care for arthritis, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of acute injuries, including fractures, sprains and torn tendons.
The clinic is located at 1830 Wells St., Suite 103 in Wailuku. For more information call 808-649-1487, visit www.mauorthopedic.com or send an email [email protected]
Dr Zachary and his wife Annie, the clinic’s business manager, moved to Maui three years ago but have island roots. Annie is a former student of Lahainaluna and her immediate family also lives in Maui. Dr Thielen’s grandparents have been part of the Windward O’ahu community for decades and his parents live in Kaua’i, where he graduated from Waimea High School.
Dr Thielen is a graduate of the University of Hawai’i School of Medicine. He completed his surgical training at the University of California, San Francisco for residency, with a one-year fellowship focused on hip and knee replacement surgery at the Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, California.
The Thielen family returned to Hawai’i to raise their young family.
“Dr. Thielen wants to create a practice where our community can feel like they are receiving world-class medical care here at home, without having to fly,” according to a press release from the company.
