Get to know Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Niels J. Linschoten, who serves patients in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Dr. Linschoten is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who has been seeing patients at Baton Rouge Orthopaedic Clinic, LLC in Baton Rouge, Louisiana since 2001. Receiving referrals from all over the state, he ​specializes in hip and knee replacements, hip and knee revisions, and the management of complex total joint situations. 

From routine to complex or rare, he is a master in orthopaedic care. “I will never tire of the joy of helping patients with unique problems who could not get help elsewhere” he stated. He is an enthusiastic proponent of the most advanced technology in joint replacement surgery, and takes his time with each patient to thoroughly address each of their concerns and to ensure accurate diagnoses and an effective treatment plan moving forward.

Born in The Netherlands and raised in the Caribbean, Dr. Linschoten graduated with his medical degree from the State University of Utrecht in Holland in 1983, after which he performed his internship in general surgery at the same educational venue. He then relocated to the United States, performing an additional internship in general surgery and a residency in orthopaedic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. He followed this up with a fellowship in adult reconstruction/joint replacements at The Cleveland Clinic, completing his training in July of 1992.

With over 25 years of surgical excellence, the doctor is board-certified in orthopaedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopaedic residents and surgeons as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopaedic surgeons.

Licensed to practice medicine in Louisiana, Dr. Linschoten is an active member of the Louisiana Orthopaedic Association, the Southern Medical Association, The Johns Hopkins Medical Society, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, and the International College of Joint Reconstruction Surgery.

Orthopaedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Throughout his line of work, Dr. Linschoten has conducted a number of publications and presentations in many areas of his field. He has an impressive history of taking on complex cases that other doctors turn down and turning them into patient success stories. 

On a more personal note, he has been happily married to a nice Cajun girl from Gonzales since 2013.
