Voted Best Orthopedic Surgeon in Omaha

Dr. Rosipal completed his fellowship under Drs. Charles A. Rockwood and Michael A. Wirth in shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center of San Antonio. He devotes the majority of his practice to problems of the shoulder and elbow with special interest in acute and chronic rotator cuff surgery, shoulder instability and traditional and reverse shoulder arthroplasty (shoulder replacements).

Dr. Rosipal is married with two young girls and enjoys bow hunting, fishing, golf and providing medical coverage for the College World Series.

“Outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and golf provide me with an escape from every day life. These activities also inspire me to get my patients back to whatever it is that energizes them. Young or old, every one has a passion – helping them return to their passion is fulfilling to me on a daily basis.”
