Brian W. Hill, M.D.Orthopaedic SurgeonShoulder & Elbow Specialist

Dr. Hill completed his orthopaedic surgery residency training at St. Louis University and following his residency he was fortunate enough to complete a fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at the prestigious Rothman Orthopaedic Institute / Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia, PA. There he learned the most advanced techniques in modern reconstructive and arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgery from many of the world’s experts.

As a shoulder and elbow surgeon, Dr. Hill specializes in the comprehensive management of shoulder and elbow conditions. He utilizes both arthroscopic and open techniques to treat various shoulder and elbow disorders including arthritis, sports injuries, instability and fractures. Dr. Hill has a particular interest in complex shoulder issues consisting of significant deformity, massive rotator cuff tears or failed previous surgery.

During the course of his career, Dr. Hill has authored and published numerous peer reviewed articles and book chapters relating to shoulder and elbow conditions. In addition, he has presented his work at numerous meetings across the United States and internationally. Dr. Hill is focused on treating patients with evidence-based medicine but most importantly he utilizes clear communication and compassion so he and his patients can make shared decision as to their best possible treatment options.
