Profile

Biography

Alexander Lopyan, M.D., is an orthopedic surgeon with specialized fellowship training is pediatric orthopedic surgery. In addition to seeing patients at C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor and Northville Health Center, he offers a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Clinic at MidMichigan Health Park in Bay City.

As a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Lopyan specializes in all aspects of musculoskeletal care for infants, children and adolescents. “I love working with children because their motivation to get better and resiliency makes my day that much more fun and rewarding,” he said.

Philosophy of Care

“I believe that children and their families deserve a physician who treats the entire patient, not just their broken bone,” said Dr. Lopyan. “What might be the appropriate management for one patient, might be unrealistic for another based on their specific needs and circumstances. I believe in collaborating with my patients and their families to tailor an effective treatment plan for everyone involved.”

Dr. Lopyan’s goal is to foster relationships with his patients built on mutual trust and respect. “Whether I’m seeing a patient for a broken bone or scoliosis, I treat them like a member of my own family,” he said. “The most satisfying aspect of my work is helping my patients reach their goals by giving them the support they need to do so. Whether it be playing as a senior on the basketball team after a femoral fracture, rejoining the cheerleading squad after spinal fusion surgery, or successfully taking those first steps after clubfoot casting, I am fortunate to participate in the path to recovery for these brave and inspiring young people.”

Special Interests and Procedures

Dr. Lopyan has trained with the leading experts in the pediatric orthopedic community, and has completed specialized training at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. He treats pediatric orthopedic conditions ranging from trauma and deformity, to cerebral palsy and hip dysplasia, with a particular focus on the spine. His specific areas of interest include scoliosis, hip dysplasia, cerebral palsy, and fracture management. For scoliosis management, he provides navigated pedicle screw placement through intra-operative 3-dimensional imaging, as well as growth-friendly spinal procedures for our younger scoliosis patients.

According to Dr. Lopyan, the recent developments in magnetic growth technology are incredibly exciting. “We now have the capability to grow bones or modulate the growth of the spine without any external fixators and minimal procedures, and this is a ground-breaking management modality that I can offer to my patients,” he added.

In his free-time he enjoys spending time with his wife and their son who keeps them both very busy while toddling around. Dr. Lopyan also loves biking, playing soccer and tennis, as well as watching movies.
