Rick B. Roper, DPM – Owner/Podiatrist

Dr. Rick Roper moved to Cheyenne in 2013 after practicing podiatry for over 30 years in Albuquerque, NM. He and his wife, Ila, are excited about the more friendly community atmosphere that Cheyenne has to offer. His 30+ years of experience have given him great skills in the diagnosis and treatment of foot problems. He is Board Certified in Foot Surgery with the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. Dr. Roper is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and the Wyoming Board of Podiatry. He has surgical privileges with the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and the High Plains Surgery Center. Dr. Roper specializes in bunion, hammertoe, neuroma, talotarsal joint stabilization, and other forefoot surgeries, along with the conservative and surgical treatment of heel pain.
Dr. Roper and Ila have 7 children and 19 grandchildren (and counting). They love spending time with their family and this move has enabled them to be closer to them. Their children are gifted in playing the piano, violin, harp, bagpipes and singing, as well as composing music. Dr. Roper loves being grandpa by spoiling his grand kids and then leaving the repair work to his children who are now “the parents”.

Our Patients Love Us!

"I saw Dr. Roper for help with my recurring shin splints. As a runner with races on the calendar, I can't afford the constant downtime my shin splints cause, so I wanted to look into any possible cause.

I waited less than 5 minutes for my appointment, and his staff did x-rays right there in the office so I didn't have to make extra appointments to check out any problems. Dr. Roper was very friendly and was able to show me right away what the problem was, and offered me a few options to correct it. I had a great experience there and am glad I chose Dr. Roper."
