Dr. Daniel Liechti is a fellowship-trained sports medicine surgeon who specializes in sports injuries and total knee, hip, and shoulder care, including joint replacement. As a former collegiate athlete, Dr. Liechti understands the desire to recover from pain and injuries. He is a team physician for the Wyoming Mustangs, and he works closely with his patients to get them back to doing what they want to do, and to be able to do so for a long time.

A graduate of The University of Iowa in Iowa City, Dr. Liechti earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from The University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago. He went on to train in general surgery through his internship at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Next, he completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown. Dr. Liechti finished his advanced specialty training through a yearlong fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at Twin Cities Orthopedics. 

Getting patients back to doing the things they love to do is always the goal Dr. Liechti has in his practice. In his own free time, he enjoys weight lifting, golf, snowboarding, and hiking. He is also an avid runner and Boston Marathon qualifier. In fact, Dr. Liechti’s interest in orthopedics began with his own treatment for stress fractures as a Division I athlete in cross-country and track and field.

Dr. Liechti is available to see patients in Gillette, Buffalo, and Sheridan, WY.
