“Orthopaedic surgery to me, represents a truly dynamic specialty in the field of medicine; the opportunity to link the investigation and diagnosis of medical pathology with the restorative outcome of surgical management.”
Dr. Robert A. Vande Guchte is board certifiied in orthopaedic surgery. He hails from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and joined Lincoln Orthopaedic Center, P.C. in November of 1997. He is a graduate of the University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine. He completed his Orthopaedic residency at the University of Alberta and a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the University of Calgary Sports Medicine Center. He has also completed a second fellowship in Spine Surgery at the University of British Columbia Spine Trauma and Disease Center.
Dr. Vande Guchte is on staff at all Lincoln hospitals, several surgery centers in Lincoln, and outlying community hospitals in Nebraska. Dr. Vande Guchte serves as Team Orthopaedic Surgeon for the Lincoln Stars hockey team and the Lincoln Saltdogs baseball team.
Dr. Vande Guchte’s decision to choose medicine and ultimately orthopaedic surgery as a career path developed early in life; guided by his Christian faith to help his fellow man, and influenced by his father, a dedicated and caring family physician. His own widespread involvement in many sports fueled his interest in orthopaedic sports medicine and the desire for challenges led to his major interest in spine surgery. In his free time, his hobbies include golf, ice hockey, and skiing.
