We have some exciting news – MCJR is partnering with a hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder specialist, Dr. Peers, to see patients in our office! Dr. Peers is from Reconstructive Hand to Shoulder of Indiana (RHSI) in Carmel, but will begin to see patients out of our office several times a month in order to reach people in the south-central area of Indiana who suffer from upper extremity joint pain. His first day in clinic at MCJR is Friday, March 31.
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with him here, call his office at 317-249-2616!
Dr. Peers was raised in Goshen, Indiana, then went on to study chemistry at Wabash College where he also helped found the college’s first competitive cycling team. Then, he attended Indiana University School of Medicine where he became interested in orthopedic surgery. After medical school, Dr. Peers completed a five-year orthopedic surgery residency program at William Beaumont Hospital in Detroit.
After residency, Dr. Peers had the privilege of completing a two-year hand, elbow, and shoulder fellowship at Cleveland Clinic. During his two years in Cleveland he trained with world-renowned experts in all areas of the upper extremity. He has particular interest in minimally invasive shoulder procedures, including arthroscopic shoulder repairs and total shoulder resurfacing replacement surgery. Because Dr. Peers lives an active lifestyle, he therefore takes pleasure in getting his patients back to their own active lifestyles as quickly as possible.
When he is not working, Dr. Peers enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife, Mary, enjoy taking their two children outside every chance they get. He also enjoys cycling, trail running, and tennis.
