Orthopedic Surgeon at Rogue Valley Orthopedics
Michigan State University of Human Medicine
Some people follow a lifelong calling to medicine. Dr. Perry was motivated by bad luck. He broke his leg playing college rugby and was treated by a doctor who was not very good. Reflecting on the experience, he realized he could do the job a lot better—and that he wanted to. Dr. Perry then switched from marine biology to pre-med and has never looked back.
In almost three decades since he finished my residency, he has been driven by that desire to be better. That means he never stops trying to improve his own techniques and he never stops learning new ones. Dr. Perry works hard to stay on the leading edge of research and development and when he believes a new procedure has been adequately tested and proven effective, he gets the training he needs to perform it.
Dr. Perry wants each of his patients to get the very best treatment possible—both personally and medically. His goal is to treat each patient with respect and compassion, from the baby born with a clubfoot to the 90 year old who wants to keep dancing. He loves being able to make a positive difference in his patients’ lives and help them resolve problems that hold them back from enjoying the activities they love.
