WLM | my Wyoming craving WLM: If you could demonstrate Wyoming in one image, what would it be and why? DO: I’m sure a lot of people equate Wyoming with the Tetons or Yellowstone. (I will not tell you that I’ve never been to either place even though I have lived in this great state for 38 years.) Many people equate Wyoming to Frontier Days. To me, however, Wyoming is about the big, open spaces. It’s about the beautiful skies that we have. To me, Wyoming in one image would entail big, fluffy white clouds in an amazingly blue sky, above a prairie of tall grasses and wildflowers...and maybe throw in a bison or antelope. “I needed to be HeRe, not In a HospItal In denveR .” Vincent Carrethers fell and severely injured his shoulder. With his wife just finishing up chemotherapy and three grandchildren in their custody, he couldn’t be far from his family. Vincent turned to Dr. Scott Croft, one of Wyoming’s most experienced fracture care Orthopedic Surgeons. Dr. Croft trained at a Level 1 Trauma Center, and then practiced Level 1 Trauma orthopedic surgery for 15 years in the Phoenix area. Dr. Croft says that “the advantage of having an experienced orthopedic trauma surgeon here in this area of Wyoming is medically stable patients don’t have to travel for treatment of their complex fractures. They can stay here, close to home, for their surgery and their followup appointments. It’s much less disruptive to their lives.” Scott Albrecht Sales Associate 307.413.3785 scottalbrecht@yahoo.com jacksonholeobsidian.com Dr. Croft also has an interest in joint replacement and sports medicine.
