This content was provided by Dr. Olson "I am originally from Utah. I went to medical school at the University of Utah School of Medicine, then completed my residency in orthopedic surgery at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Orthopedic Surgery Residency program in New Hampshire, followed by a Fellowship in Hand and Microsurgery at Columbia University Medical Center's Fellowship in New York City. I also have a strong interest in public health and preventive medicine; I studied and achieved a Master's of Science in Health Care Leadership from Dartmouth and a Master's of Public Health from the University of Utah. My orthopedic practice is in surgical and non-surgical management of conditions of the hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow. Additionally, I have several years of training in general orthopedic trauma which is essential considering the active populations in the Park City and Heber Valleys as well as the Wasatch Mountains. My wife Emily and I have 4 incredible children. Besides time with my family, I love nutrition, outdoor sports, and exercise."
This content was provided by Dr. Olson "There are clearly some injuries and conditions that are best treated with surgery. I love to use my hands to help heal people. Several years of surgical training back east at Dartmouth and Columbia have helped me develop this essential skill set to help others through surgical techniques. Having said this, there are other conditions which are best treated with a more holistic perspective in which good nutrition and lifestyle factors make the most difference. Unfortunately, our whole health care model is set up for an intervention approach rather than a prevention approach. We have also become so subspecialized in specific areas of the body that we neglect seeing and treating the whole patient. My training in public health and preventive medicine has helped me with this perspective. Ultimately, it's the body that heals itself. I see myself as a guide for healing."
