Meet Eric Khetia, M.D.

Dr. Khetia’s approach: “My goal is to lead an active, healthy life and to allow my patients to do the same. Restoring them to pre-injury levels of functioning and allowing them to pursue the activities they enjoy inspires me.”

Dr. Khetia’s education: Dr. Khetia completed his undergraduate and medical studies at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, Missouri. For his residency, he participated in the Orthopedic Surgery program at the University of Kansas in Wichita, Kansas. He then went on to complete an Arthroscopic Surgery and Sports Medicine fellowship at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Meet Brent Warner, M.D.

Dr. Warner’s approach: “As an athlete, I understand the profound impact that an injury can have on a patient’s life and well-being. My goal is to return people to activity as quickly and safely as possible, whether that’s training for an ultramarathon or walking the dog around the block.”

Dr. Warner’s education: Dr. Warner received his undergraduate degree from Duke University in Durham, NC. He completed his medical doctorate at the Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, OH, and his residency took place at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC. For advanced fellowship training, he attended the Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail, CO.
