William A. Tyndall M.D., PH.D.
Dr. Tyndall is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and fellowship-trained in sports medicine and arthroscopy. He focuses on evaluating and diagnosing sports injuries and disorders of the upper and lower extremities, and providing effective and affordable treatment plans. Dr. Tyndall always considers the traditional nonsurgical methods for effective pain relief. When surgery is necessary to resume a healthy lifestyle, he will perform advanced, minimally invasive procedures that will ultimately reduce the recovery time.
Dr. Tyndall is the first surgeon to complete a NextAR shoulder procedure in the state of Pennsylvania. NextAR is the first platform to offer personalized augmented reality solutions for both joint replacement and spine procedures.
While Dr. Tyndall is recovering from a long work week, he resides in Hollidaysburg, PA with his wife and three children. They enjoy the outdoors, time with family, biking, running, and skiing.

Dr. William Tyndall Is a very sincere and helpful orthopedic surgeon, especially for senior citizens such as I. He listens patiently to the problems that a person has, regarding their pain and makes professional suggestions, with options for what can be done to help relieve the pain.He reviews the x-rays with the patient and explains the severity of the injury as he professionally sees it. I believe that he will do a good job when he replaces my knee in June. I have had great feedback from several of my friends who have had knee replacement done by him in the past!1 – 2
Dr. Tyndall is one of the few doctors nowadays that doesn't treat you like a number. Doctors now a day want to get you in and out. He actually takes time to show and explain what is going on. He replaced my left knee a few years ago, and when the other one needs done, I will absolutely go to him. Thank God there are still doctors like him around.2 – 2
