Orthopedic Surgeon Helps People with Injuries, Arthritis
Orthopedic surgeon Brett Young, MD, has returned to New London to continue to provide care with ThedaCare Orthopedic Care at ThedaCare Medical Center-New London. “I live in Appleton but practiced in New London when I first came to the area in 2002,” he said. “I enjoyed it there and when the opportunity came with Dr. Dietrich retiring, I was happy to return to New London.”
Dr. Young, who is from Kansas City, earned his bachelor’s degree at UCLA and completed his medical degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Young completed internship and orthopedic residency training at the John Peter Smith Orthopedic Program where he served as chief resident. After completing his education, he started practice in 2002. He belongs to the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
His orthopedic training was in Dallas/Fort Worth. He started practice in 2002. Dr. Young specializes in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee, and joint replacement surgery of the shoulder, knee and hip. He performs minimally invasive procedures such as rotator cuff repair and ACL reconstruction. His practice also involves taking care of fractures.
“I chose this field because I like to fix things with my mind and my hands,” he said. “It’s incredibly satisfying to help people get better from their injuries or their arthritis.”
Dr. Young enjoys the connection with his patients. “My philosophy of care is to tailor care to each individual patient, always basing my recommendations on the best available evidence from medical studies,” he said.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Young, a father of two, enjoys hiking, biking, golfing, music, movies and travel.
