I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from the Chicago area, and I earned my dual B.S. degrees in biomedical engineering and electrical engineering at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering in Durham, North Carolina. I began my post-graduate studies at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, obtaining my medical degree in 2007. Following graduation, I pursued my orthopaedic residency training at the McGaw Medical Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. This included level-one trauma experience at three medical centers: Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Children's Memorial Hospital (now the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago), and the John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Following residency, I completed a one-year training program, or fellowship, in orthopaedic trauma surgery at MetroHealth Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. In addition to my clinical interests, I am active in many aspects of medical education. I have delivered several lectures on a variety of trauma topics and authored multiple orthopaedic research articles, abstracts, and textbook chapters. I am particularly passionate about resident education and am currently affiliated with the Residency Program at Rush University Medical Center. In addition to my professional commitments, I stay active through running, biking, and playing sports. I am an avid fan of the Chicago Bears, Bulls, and Cubs. I also enjoy music, movies, and spending time with my family. Please contact me if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at OrthoIllinois. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available. I am looking forward to meeting with you.

Dr. Earhart's Care Philosophy
No one wakes up in the morning expecting to be involved in an accident. I take very seriously the responsibility of providing compassionate, high-quality orthopaedic care to my patients in their unanticipated time of need. My practice is primarily focused on the operative treatment of general limb fractures, peri-articular fractures, complex fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum (hip socket), peri-prosthetic fractures, and the treatment of multiply injured patients. My practice also includes limb salvage treatment for fracture malunions, nonunions, and infections.
