During that time, he was awarded the 2010 OREF/MTF/Charles H. Herndon Resident Clinic Scientist Training Grant for his research on tendon repair and regeneration. Dr. Keller's interest in Sports Medicine evolved through experiences with injuries of his own and after taking care of athletes as a resident physician. During that time, he volunteered his time as an assistant team physician to local high school football teams and authored several publications pertaining to Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy. Following residency, Dr. Keller completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy with the Santa Monica Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group in Santa Monica, California. His focus during that time included: hip, knee, and shoulder arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repair and cartilage restoration. As a fellow, Dr. Keller was an assistant team physician for the US Men's and Women's National Soccer Teams, LA Galaxy, Chivas USA, Pepperdine University, and Santa Monica College.
