Dr. Billhymer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Billhymer "Dr. Billhymer joined West Valley Hospital in 2014 as the Director of Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery. Having trained with internationally renowned orthopaedic trauma surgeons at some of the busiest trauma centers in New Jersey, New York and Florida, he brings in-depth, broad exposure to orthopaedic trauma care. Trauma became his main area of interest because he found the complex and unique characteristics of each fracture challenging, yet rewarding, to fix. He also found great fulfillment in being able to help facilitate the often dramatic recovery traumatized patients make. Dr. Billhymer has received extensive experience in the polytraumatized patient, fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum, complex periarticular fractures, minimally invasive fracture care, and the correction of complications from these injuries (including bone infections). Prior to moving to Arizona, Dr. Billhymer was an Adult and Pediatric Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery Attending at busy Level 1 and Level 2 trauma centers in Illinois. Dr. Billhymer has served on medical mission trips to Guatemala and Honduras. He has published research and presented research data at scientific meetings. Dr. Billhymer is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. He earned his MD from the Univeristy of New Mexico School of Medicine. He completed residency at Rutgers University in New Jersey and an orthopaedic trauma surgery fellowship at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa, FL."
