David Paul J. Almdale, MD (Retired)

Dr. Almdale recently retired from Fort Wayne Orthopedics, however he will continue to offer his expertise in Bone Health services at The Orthopedic Hospital beginning in January 2021.

For Dr. David Almdale, working on hips, knees and shoulders is like clockwork.

Dr. Almdale’s studies in biomedical engineering at Northwestern University led him into a career related to mechanical principles. However, this piano enthusiast isn’t about solos. He wants his patients to feel comfortable with their choice of treatment whether it’s therapy, medication, or surgery.

During his off time he is out in the garden, running for exercise, reading, or busy with church activities and mission work.
