  • Biography



    Dr. William Kilgore is an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacements. He also provides fracture care, knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, and hand surgery (like carpal tunnel and trigger finger releases). In addition, Dr. Kilgore provides valuable emergency orthopaedic care for our community through St. Joseph Hospital.

    Dr. Kilgore has been a member of the community since 2006. He enjoys living and raising his family in Humboldt while providing a local option for excellent orthopedic care.

    Dr. Kilgore attended U.C. San Diego, one of the best medical schools in the nation. He then did his orthopaedic training at the Penn State/Milton S. Hershey program in Hershey, Pennsylvania. This allowed him to get a rigorous training while living in a beautiful rural setting.

    Dr. Kilgore’s main interest is providing a local option for minimally invasive hip and knee replacements. He has performed over one thousand joint replacements. He performs anterior total hip and minimally invasive knee replacements. The tissue sparing, anterior hip replacement doesn't cut muscles, and has a faster recovery. Why leave home when cutting edge, minimally invasive procedures are available right here?
