Michael J. Hilts, MD, is board certified in primary care sports medicine and family medicine. His professional interests include sports medicine, family medicine, musculoskeletal ultrasound and functional medicine.

Collaborative and caring, he treats patients as he would family members. For patients with medical or orthopedic problems, he strives to determine the root cause of conditions rather than merely treating symptoms. In addition to nutritional, lifestyle and biomechanical factors, he takes time to understand past personal and family history.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and roasting his own coffee beans. He is actively involved in Bible Study Fellowship.

“From a medical standpoint, I have a strong desire to help patients learn to improve their health and well-being without prescription medicine whenever possible. From an orthopedic standpoint, my goal is to improve or resolve conditions without surgery if possible.” – Michael J. Hilts, MD

Everything was pleasant!!! The Dr was excellent!!! He moved expeditiously in rectifying the problem instead of dragging out the inevitable... He didn't play around bc those x-rays showed him everything he needed to see... Other dr's in the past wanted to play the wait and see game when they knew it was game over a long time ago... I am so glad to be in the care of dr's who seem to geniually care about my now...I may be on my last leg in enjoying my life to the fullest!!!

I truly enjoyed the visit and have already recommended Dr. Hilts to a couple of friends. He took his time to explore everything that occurred since my last visit, go over in great detail my X-rays and the scan and what I was looking at and his thoughts. He factored in all the lifestyle changes and provided great feedback there as well. Very personable, professional and knowledgeable and I'm just so happy I found him and his treatments are already impacting my wellness after almost 3 years in pain.
