Specialities: Orthopedics, Sports Medicine


Physician Bio

We are pleased to introduce Dr. Nicholas Pearson, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with a specialty in sports medicine.

Dr. Pearson’s father, a physical therapist, was one of his main inspirations to study medicine. “I saw how my father helped to improve people’s lives and well-being, and I knew that was something I wanted to do as well.” He also spent many years working construction and was amazed how the skillset and working with his hands easily translated into being an orthopedic surgeon.

Because of Dr. Pearson’s sports medicine fellowship, he is expertly trained to care for the needs of all community members and athletes. In addition to the procedures a general orthopedist performs, he specializes in minimally invasive shoulder, knee, elbow, and hip arthroscopy and is able to perform life-changing surgeries with significantly decreased healing times. He brings to South-Eastern Idaho many state-of-the-art procedures such as hip arthroscopy and other new and innovative techniques in shoulder and knee surgery. Such procedures help patients continue their active lifestyles and preserve the patient’s native anatomy and function, promoting overall joint health. In addition to treating on-the-field injuries that keep athletes sidelined, he also treats the nagging injuries and pain many people suffer from simply living life.

As a Blackfoot High School graduate, Dr. Pearson looks forward to providing medical care to his hometown community. His wife, Lacie, is originally from Arizona, but they met at BYU-Idaho. Together, they have five children: four boys and one girl. When he’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Pearson enjoys spending time with his family and friends and being outdoors—camping, hiking, biking, fishing, and golfing. And, having participated on the rodeo team in high school, he also loves riding horses.
