Dr. Li completed his first fellowship in Sports Medicine at the prestigious Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, a world-renowned sports medicine fellowship program. During his fellowship, Dr. Li worked with many experts in the field of sports medicine and served as the assistant team physician for the New York Mets professional baseball team. After his sports medicine fellowship, Dr. Li completed a second fellowship in Shoulder & Elbow surgery at the Harvard Medical School (Massachusetts General and Brigham & Women's Hospital). During this time, Dr. Li spent additional time traveling to France to work closely with two world-renowned shoulder surgeons, Dr. Laurent Lafosse (Annecy) and Dr. Gilles Walch (Lyon) to further advance his training in complex arthroscopic shoulder surgeries and open shoulder reconstruction. Dr. Li graduated summa cum laude from Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC and earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, VA. He went on to complete a six-year academic Orthopaedic Surgery residency program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, MA. In addition to the five-year clinical residency, Dr. Li also completed an additional year of orthopaedic surgery research fellowship in Tissue Engineering.
