Tristyn Richendifer, PA-C​

My name is Tristyn Richendifer and I am a board certified Physician Assistant. I have been working at Thunder Basin Orthopaedics for the last 4 years with my primary focus being in general orthopaedics.

I was born and raised in Wyoming. After undergraduate studies, I attended Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City and completed my Master of Science in Health Sciences for Physician Assistant studies.

My husband, Blake, and I were fortunate to have the opportunity to return to our home state back in 2015. We both enjoy all of the outdoor activities that the great state of Wyoming has to offer, including water sports and hiking. We are also avid sports fans, including cheering on our local sports teams.

New York City gave us the desire and appreciation to travel and try different restaurants. We were blessed in the last year with a baby boy who makes our hearts full and brings a whole new meaning to life.

I embrace the opportunity to treat orthopaedic patients and get them back to their top performance and/or functional level with our talented and exceptional team at Thunder Basin Orthopaedics.
