Biography

I chose to specialize in adult reconstruction because hip and knee replacement surgery allows me the opportunity to provide patients significant pain relief and improvement in function that lets them get back to doing the things they enjoy.

I enjoy getting to know my patients and learning what is most important to them. We can then work together to discuss treatment options and use shared-decision making to identify the best method to achieve their desired result, whether this involves surgery or not. I also feel it is important to keep myself educated on modern techniques and critically evaluate these to ensure I am providing patients with the best and most up to date care possible.

I am an avid fisherman, enjoy spending time outdoors, and huge college football fan. I am a proud husband of my wife, Amy Gabbard (also a physician at IU Health).
