Tim Lenters, MD
Dr. Lenters chose to specialize in orthopedics because he saw multiple positive opportunities in the field: the ability to bring dramatic change to patient’s lives; the chance to constantly learn new medical care treatments, surgical techniques, orthopedic technology, and devices; and the opportunity to teach residents and other physicians.
The shoulder creates multiple challenges and he relishes the opportunity to help develop and teach innovative treatment options. Dr. Lenters was the first shoulder subspecialist in West Michigan. This allowed him to fulfill a void in the West Michigan area at the time. He has been with River Valley Orthopedics since 2005. It has been fulfilling to him to bring a level of expertise previously unknown in the area. He continues to bring new technologies and surgical techniques to his patients to achieve more reproducible and excellent outcomes.
When Dr. Lenters isn’t working with patients and innovating breakthrough orthopedic techniques, he enjoys spending time with his wife, twins – son and daughter – and the family’s growing pup. His hobbies include fitness, cycling, P90X, golf, spending time in the woods, and enjoying time vacationing with his family.
