Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Seyler I am an adult reconstruction surgeon here at Duke. I completed graduate school and residency training at Wake Forest University followed by a fellowship in adult reconstruction at Duke. My choice to pursue a career in adult reconstruction was based on my passion for patient outcomes. I was truly inspired by patients satisfaction and the drastic improvement on their quality of life after total joint replacement. I enjoy the systematic approach to problem solving and the complexity of cases in adult reconstruction especially in the setting of revision arthroplasty. My clinical and research interests are centered around periprosthetic joint infections a disastrous complication which continues to pose a challenge to the orthopaedic community. Despite the progress made our goal to prevent infection following arthroplasty surgery remains unaccomplished. It is not an exaggeration to claim that fear of infection lives in the heart of every arthroplasty surgeon who steps into the operating room. My mission is to provide a personalized assessment and treat each patient individually based upon their condition and needs.
