Peter N. Chalmers, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery

Dr. Chalmers is a member of the faculty at the University of Utah within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. He focuses on the care of all shoulder and elbow problems, from young athletes to shoulder arthritis. His practice includes minimally invasive arthroscopy, ligament and tendon repair, and joint replacement. As a former coach and division I athlete, Dr. Chalmers knows the importance of getting back on the field. He sees patients at the University Orthopaedic Center, the South Jordan Health Center, and the Farmington Health Center. He serves as the team physician for Salt Lake City Bees triple-A baseball team and the University of Utah baseball team. He also serves as a team physician for the Utah Jazz.

Dr. Chalmers graduated magna cum laude as a dual major in Biology and Biophysical Chemistry at Dartmouth College. He attended medical school at Columbia University in New York City, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. Dr. Chalmers completed his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, where he received multiple teaching and research awards. He completed his fellowship in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery at Washington University in Saint Louis.

Dr. Chalmers is a native of Portland, Oregon. He enjoys hiking and skiing with his wife, who is an oncologist at Huntsman Cancer Institute.

RESEARCH STATEMENT

As a faculty member at the University of Utah, Dr. Chalmers is involved in clinical research. Dr. Chalmers’ goal is to honestly and substantially improve the lives of those with shoulder and elbow problems. Taking the best possible care of patients is an important part of this goal. Research also helps us to achieve that goal.

As part of this research effort, you may be asked to participate in a research study. If you would like to participate, you may be required to sign specific consent forms, fill out additional questionnaires over the phone, and return for follow-up visits in the future. If you do not wish to fill out questionnaires, do not wish to be contacted via phone in the future to collect research questionnaires, and/or do not wish to return for follow-up in the future, research participation may not be for you.

Some studies may involve randomization. Studies with randomization are performed when there are two possible options and doctors genuinely do not know which one is better. To determine which one is better, patients are randomly assigned to one option or the other option. If you do not want your treatment to be assigned randomly, you do not have to participate in these types of studies. Other studies may require additional x-rays, other types of imaging, electromyograms, or specialized motion analysis studies. All of these research techniques are safe and pose minimal risk to participants; however, they are experimental and will not be performed if you are not a research participant.

If you would prefer not to be involved in a research study, it will NOT influence your clinical care in any way. Dr. Chalmers provides the same level of care regardless of your willingness to participate in research. You should feel no pressure or obligation to participate in any research study. If you do agree to participate, you will be helping tomorrow’s patients to receive better care than yesterday’s patients. We greatly appreciate your support!
