Lisa Longhofer, M.D.

Dr. Lisa K. Longhofer practices Orthopaedics specializing in Orthopaedic Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery.  She grew up on a Texas Panhandle Cattle Ranch surrounded by motivated, hard-working people who simply had to get their jobs done.  This ranch-life philosophy is the foundation of her practice at Amarillo Bone and Joint where she specializes in restoring function to the hand, wrist, forearm, and shoulder for her patients.

This Texas Panhandle native is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons and completed her Fellowship in Orthopaedic Hand Surgery at The Hand Center in San Antonio, Texas after receiving her medical degree from Texas Tech University Health Science Center in Lubbock, TX and then completing her Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at the University of Kansas in Wichita, KS.  She is Board Eligible by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

“I am focused on getting my patients their function back, including seeing each patient through the entire healing process.  We offer a hand therapy suite of highly skilled and qualified occupational hand therapists on our campus for each patient’s convenience and healing.”

Dr. Longhofer was raised on a cattle ranch just outside of Canadian, TX.  She graduated Valedictorian from Booker High School and then proceeded to Texas Tech University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and then a Master of Science in Biology.  She completed her Doctor of Medicine from Texas Tech University Health Science Center with Junior AOA Honors.  She received the Orthopaedic Research Institute Award upon completion of her Orthopaedic Surgery Residency.
