Who We Are At Orthopedic Specialists

Dr. Wilsterman  - Orthopedic Specialists in Falmouth, MA
Owning and Operating Orthopedic Specialists for more than 20 years, Dr. Wilsterman is the area's senior orthopedic surgeon, specializing in total joints, arthroscopy and sports medicine. Dr. Wilsterman is the only orthopedic surgeon at Falmouth Hospital who performs the rapid recovery/minimally invasive technique of hip replacement called The Direct Anterior Approach. He also does more arthroscopic knee surgery than any other orthopedic surgeon in the area.
Dr. Wilsterman shares his practice with two, board certified Physician Assistants, Mark Colucci, PA-C and Brian Bird, PA-C, who are fully qualified to diagnose and treat orthopedic injuries and conditions. Both Mark and Brian have worked with Dr. Wilsterman for more than 12 years. They see patients, develop treatment plans, prescribe medicine as needed, and follow up until normal activities are reestablished.
With a great spirit of teamwork and enthusiasm about caring for our patients, we have a fantastic office environment. We are so proud of our entire staff – Bridget Ellis our Clinical Manager, Heidi McLean, who welcomes patients at the front desk, Lindsay Marks our Medical Assistant and Surgical Scheduler, and Josh Woodis, our x-ray technician. Our billing manager, Denise Baumann works with insurance companies and patients to ensure timeliness and accuracy. And finally, Connie Wilsterman who focuses on bill paying, trouble shooting and smooth sailing.
