Eric Varboncouer, M.D.


Orthopedic Surgeon Eric Varboncouer, M.D., cares for patients at Lake Regional Orthopedics - Osage Beach and Lake Regional Clinic - Lebanon.

Dr. Varboncouer provides surgical and nonsurgical repair of broken bones and torn ligaments and cartilage. He also treats osteoarthritis and repetitive use injuries. Common procedures include arthroscopic (minimally invasive) surgery to repair joints and total joint replacement surgery. He has a special interest in repairing shoulders.

Being a physician was a childhood dream for Dr. Varboncouer.

"I wanted to help people, and that continues to hold true," he said. "I was drawn to orthopedics because I wanted to fix, not just manage, health problems. Through surgery, we often can immediately improve someone's quality of life."

Dr. Varboncouer added he takes time to listen to patients and explain their treatment plans.

"I want patients to be fully informed in regards to their conditions and their treatment options," he said. "They need to be comfortable, and I think they'll find I'm very approachable and willing to answer their questions."

Dr. Varboncouer is board-certified in orthopedic surgery. He joined Lake Regional Orthopedics in 2018. Learn more about orthopedic care at Lake Regional.
