Dear Patients:

We, at Southwest Orthopaedic Surgery Specialists, are sad to announce the closure of our practice on August 31, 2018 after 13 years serving the community of Tucson and Southern Arizona.

Dr. Domingo Cheleuitte and Dr. Bradley Norris will be transitioning to Tucson Orthopedic Institute beginning on September 1, 2018.  You may call Tucson Orthopedic Institute at (520) 784-6200 to schedule appointments with Dr. Cheleuitte or Dr. Norris.

The unfortunate and unexpected death of one of the founding surgeons of Southwest Orthopedic Surgery Specialists has led to the decision to join forces with the largest group in Southern Arizona. It was a difficult decision for everyone, but one that will allow continued orthopedic care, now including spine conditions, for all of our patients.

We are still the same physicians who have loved providing you thorough and compassionate care. For us the patient always comes first. We will merely be in a different building under a different name, but still providing the same care.

We will update our website with new contact numbers and addresses of our new clinic locations, so we can continue caring for you. The main clinic address will be 5301 E. Grant Rd., Tucson, AZ 85712.  You can continue to reach us at (520) 327-9677.  Messages left on our voicemail system will be checked daily and responded to within 24-48 hours.

If you have an emergency and need to speak to Dr. Cheleuitte or Dr. Norris, please call (520) 570-7836.  If you have any general questions or requests, please email us at  We will reply within 1-2 business days.

Medical records requests may be made to  Requests will be fulfilled within 15 business days.

Sincerely yours,

Domingo Cheleuitte, M.D.
