Dr. Schipper's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schipper "Dr. Schipper completed his medical education at the Georgetown University School of Medicine and attended the University of Chicago for orthopaedic surgery residency. He then completed his orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery training at the OrthoCarolina Foot & Ankle Institute. There he assisted in the care of professional athletes and performed a variety of orthopaedic foot and ankle procedures including primary and revision ankle replacements. He also managed all forms of foot and ankle trauma, including tibial, pilon, ankle, calcaneal, talus, and foot fractures. He is a member of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He has presented both regionally and nationally, including the AOFAS annual conference and at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Dr. Schipper has co-authored book chapters and published multiple papers in orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery, with a focus on ankle replacement. He has produced the lead article in the top foot and ankle journal, Foot and Ankle International, multiple times. His most recent paper was the first to link early ankle replacement osteolysis to implant wear particles, for which he was a Leonard J. Goldner award finalist. Currently, he has an Orthopaedic Research and Education Fund grant underway in collaboration with Rush University comparing ankle replacement implant wear between highly cross linked polyethylene and conventional ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. Outside of the management of ankle arthritis and ankle replacement, Dr. Schipper specializes in lower extremity trauma and foot and ankle sports medicine. Dr. Schipper believes in empowering patients to make the best decision for their life situation. No two patients are alike and therefore each management plan must be tailored to the expectations and needs of each individual patient."

I had an accident recently and wasn't able to walk, and a friend told me I should speak to Dr. Schipper (she had gone to him to fix a problem with her ankle). I'm so glad I did - he talked me through the problem, made me very aware of the choices, and just all around was a pleasure to work with. I...more
