I was always fascinated with science and anatomy as a student growing up. My first exposure with orthopedics was after I suffered an injury in high school that required surgery and rehabilitation. I was lucky enough to be referred to the team at Orthopedic Institute and felt they delivered the gold standard of care. From reception, X-ray, nursing, PA, surgeon and therapist, I felt that every one of them cared about me as a person. They worked as a team to provide the best possible care to get me back to health. That was my first exposure to orthopedics and I was hooked with the specialty.
I LOVE what I do. Working at Orthopedic Institute is not a job for me. It is an incredible opportunity to be able to provide care to patients that have faith and trust in their surgeon. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to care for people.
About Dr. Adler
Dr. Adler provides general orthopedics, specializing in hip and knee replacement. He trained in joint replacement at the Mayo Clinic and then furthered his education in joint reconstruction at the Florida Orthopedic Institute with an entire year dedicated to minimally invasive hip and knee reconstruction.
He specializes in anterior hip replacement. The approach to the surgery does not cut muscle and therefore reduces healing time. He also specializes in minimally invasive knee replacement. New advances in technology have improved knee replacement to feel more natural with better biomechanics. Hip and knee replacements can wear out over time and need to be revised. He enjoys performing these complex and difficult cases. In addition, Dr. Adler performs sports medicine, including knee arthroscopy with ACL and ligament reconstruction.
Dr. Adler teaches and speaks on a national level about hip and knee reconstruction. This has allowed him to interact and learn from some of the greatest minds in orthopedics today as they share insights on new technology and techniques. He has also contributed to implant and instrument design.
The majority of Dr. Adler’s free time is spent with his family. He and his wife keep busy with their children’s school and athletic activities including basketball, soccer, baseball, softball, wakeboarding, skiing, and snowboarding. He takes every opportunity to coach when he can and loves spending time outdoors

Dr. Adler is a wonderful surgeon and very caring individual. He checked my knee and answered all the questions I had. I will see him again in 7 weeks.
Dr Adler and the whole support team at OI are the best. Can’t say enough good things about all of them.
Dr Adler and his PA Scott are both very personable and take the time to explain everything clearly. The injection Scott gave was pain free which is important to me so he did a great job!
Everyone at OI is very courteous and friendly! I am very satisfied with how my surgery went and follow up care. Dr Adler and any staff that has helped me are outstanding! I saw a personal trainer yesterday and I was very pleased with that visit. I learned new exercises to do and he was very helpful and explained things very well.
Everything was great.
I have the highest regard for everyone I had contact with! I felt well informed when I left Dr. Adler’s office! He has a great PA, too! I know about my knee, and we have a game plan! Thanks to everyone!
I really appreciated how Dr. Adler listened to my concerns. I felt like he was actually listening to what I was saying. He didn’t seem to be in a hurry to just get on to the next patient. Very pleased with my visit!

Outstanding service and even though it was a busy morning the staff did not indicate that they were overwhelmed at all. They are a true well oiled machine.
Received an email for the patient portal but not the temp password as stated in the email. Will call today to access the portal.
The hassle of recordings when calling, irritating and ridiculous. Personal and services very nice.
Dr. Adler appears to be very knowledgeable and did an excellent job on my hip. I would recommend him very highly for hip or knee replacement to others. He has a great personality!

Dr. Adler’s staff at the Orthopedic Institute are all very pleasant, helpful and professional. Always greeted with a smile. I have never had to wait for one of my appointments.

Dr. Adler has down both of my total hip replacements and my right hand knee replacement. He will be doing me left knee when it comes time to do that. Very professional and has a great surgical team assisting him at the Orthopedic Hospital in Sioux Falls S.D.
Dr. Adler was highly recommended to me by trusted friends. He is a very professional and knowledgeable doctor with a positive, confident, and upbeat personality. The care I received at the SFSH during my hip replacement stay was the best I have ever experienced!
Excellent care from Dr. Adler and his staff and SFSH. Everyone was concerned about me and my knee and how I was doing. 5 days from surgery and, so far, I’m pleased. Dr. Adler is highly skilled, great personality and interested in the patient. Doesn’t get better than that.
