NAH welcomes Dr. Adam Schneider to the Orthopedic & Spine Institute in Cottonwood

Northern Arizona Healthcare (NAH) announced that Adam Schneider, MD, has joined the Orthopedic & Spine Institute (OSI) in Cottonwood at Verde Valley Medical Center (VVMC). Dr. Schneider is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in general orthopedic fracture care and also on hand and upper-extremity conditions. He previously worked at VVMC from 2018-2021. 

“The Verde Valley is where my family and I call home and where we belong. I missed the good people at VVMC, who are like family.  When I saw the job opening matching my particular skillset, the decision to return to the place we dearly missed was an easy one, and thankfully all of the pieces fell into place for us to be able to do so,” said Dr. Schneider. 

“We are excited to welcome back the talented Dr. Schneider, as he joins the strong team of OSI orthopedic providers at VVMC,” said Matt Kraemer, administrator for the NAH Orthopedic & Spine Institute. “He is a trusted, talented health care provider who brings extensive expertise in orthopedic care. The addition of his skills will build on NAH’s commitment of delivering a high level of care close to home for Verde Valley residents,” Kraemer added.  

Dr. Schneider earned his medical degree from the University of Queensland School of Medicine in Australia. He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery, as well as a fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He is board-certified in orthopedic surgery and hand and upper extremity surgery with the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.   

The orthopedic care team at OSI Cottonwood consists of a partnership between specially trained physicians, nurses, therapists, care coordinators and technicians, all of whom are prepared to provide the best possible care for every patient.
