“I strongly believe in back-to-basics care – a human voice on the phone, a smile to greet you and a staff member to help you with complicated forms. "

"We treat each patient as we would want a family member to be treated – with high quality, personalized care uncompromised by medical politics or financial incentives."

"The biggest joy of my practice, however, is helping patients get back out there and watch them enjoy life.”

John S. Rogerson, M.D., graduated Phi Beta Kappa magna cum laude from Dartmouth College with a Bachelors of Science degree and as a Rufus Choate Scholar. He received his medical degree from the University of Iowa Medical School and was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. His internship was completed at McKennan Hospital in South Dakota and his orthopaedic residency the University of Wisconsin Hospitals. Dr. Rogerson is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and has served as a clinical assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin – School of Medicine.

Dr. Rogerson has practiced orthopaedic surgery in Madison, Wisconsin for more than 34 years. A fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dr. Rogerson specializes in care of the hip, shoulder and knee with expertise in hip resurfacing and replacement and arthroscopic surgery.  He has been one of area’s more active total joint replacement surgeons, utilizing state-of-the-art laminar air flow and hood filtration systems in all of his cases to lessen the potential for infection. He was one of the first surgeons in the region to utilize computer-generated, custom, total joint replacements in selected cases. Currently, he is a leader in Birmingham hip resurfacing.  In 2006, Dr. Rogerson testified before the FDA to gain approval for use of the BHR in the U.S. and was the second U.S. surgeon to perform a BHR resurfacing. More recently, he presented his BHR data before the FDA “Committee on Metal on Metal Bearings” to verify it’s success rates in younger active osteoarthritis patients and advocated for it’s continued use in the United States which was confirmed.

Dr. Rogerson has also been an innovator in the area of arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and has introduced several new techniques to the National Shoulder Arthroscopy Study Group.

In addition to authoring several chapters in orthopedic textbooks on arthroscopic surgical technique, Dr. Rogerson has given many presentations to national physician groups and has been particularly active in the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA). He enjoys teaching other surgeons about arthroscopic surgical techniques and has been a Master Instructor at the Orthopaedic Learning Center in Chicago on numerous occasions. For a detailed listing of Dr. Rogerson’s publications and presentations please visit his Curriculum Vitae tab.

As an active member of AANA, Dr. Rogerson served on the Association’s Board of Directors from 1996 to 1999. He also served on the Education Committee from 1991 to 1993, and as chairman of the Membership Committee from 1995 to 1999.

Dr. Rogerson was the secretary of the Board of Directors of AANA from 2005-2007, vice-chair of the Orthopaedic Learning Center Committee and a member of the Health Policy Committee in 2003 and 2004.

Dr. Rogerson and his wife, Cindy, have two children: Kyle and Joanna. Kyle works for Apple and lives in Miami with his wife and son. Joanna is a certified physician assistant and has been working in Dr. Rogerson’s office for over ten years. Cindy has been an active volunteer in the Madison community since arriving in 1976. She worked as the Director of Tourism and Volunteers for the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center for three years. She presently enjoys playing golf and hanging out with her grandkids as often as she can.

In his spare time, Dr. Rogerson enjoys tennis, boating, paddle boarding, sailing and sculpture.
