Dr. Ashley Ali is a St. Louis based board-eligible orthopedic surgeon fellowship-trained in sports medicine.
As a Division I college basketball player, Dr. Ali understands the importance of getting athletes back on track after an injury. Dr. Ali is the sports medicine doctor at Winsdor High School, her alma mater.
"I love working with tools, building/rebuilding things, and I am extremely meticulous," Dr. Ali says. "With orthopedic surgery, you can see the product of your work; if it’s broken—fix it. The most gratifying part of my job, though, is helping patients get back to what they love to do. I am humbled that patients trust me to help them achieve their goals, and I never take that responsibility for granted.”
Dr. Ali accepts all major insurances. For more information go to our Insurance page.
