My name is Peter Lepse. I’m an orthopedic surgeon here at Cotton O’Neil Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. I am board certified in orthopedic surgery and also have subspecialty certification in sports medicine.

Why did you choose to work at Stormont Vail Health?

I chose to practice in Topeka for a number of reasons. We liked the size of the community. The medical community is very sophisticated for a city this size. Topeka is a good place to live. It’s an excellent place to practice. And Stormont has been very supportive.

The group here at Cotton O’Neil Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is excellent. I think the surgeons do a very good job of listening to the patient, outlining treatment plans, and involving the patient in their care.

What procedures do you specialize in?

My practice is almost exclusively knee and shoulder surgery. The procedures that I most commonly do are knee arthroscopy and ACL reconstruction and shoulder arthroscopy, especially rotator cuff repair.

Why should patients trust you with their care?

I think patients should trust me with their care because of the way I do carefully evaluate them. I try to explain in clear and simple language what the problem is, and involve them in the treatment decision, present alternatives and — in conjunction with the patient — arrive at the best plan.
