Welcome to Bighorn Medical Center, new name same great Care!

Big Horn Basin Bone & Joint is now know as Bighorn Medical center.  The change was made to reflect the growth and expansion of the medical care available in our office.  With Neurosurgery, General Surgery, and Internal Medicine added to our outstanding Orthopedic Surgical clinic, we have the expertise you need for the best possible treatment.

Bighorn Medical Center MRI/CT

This year we installed new imaging equipment to compliment our office.  With a new GE 750W 3.0 T MRI you will get state of the art imaging at a fraction of the cost of the local Hospitals.  We have the 3rd 3.0T magnet in Wyoming, and there is no need to travel long distances to get the best in class imaging available.  We have also installed a new GE 16 slice CT scanner that is perfect for imaging needs of our physicians.  It has been approved by the FDA to scan patients for lung cancer with a lower dose of X-ray radiation than other CTs in the area.  Come see us for your imaging needs at our facility located at 613 Yellowstone, in front of Cody Labs.
