Meet Dr. Matthew Nies
Dr. Nies’s approach: Dr. Nies’s practice philosophy revolves around shared decision-making. “I give patients the options, and we make a decision together about what the best route for the patient as an individual is going to be,” he said. “I take a conservative approach, reserving surgery as a last resort.”
Dr. Nies’s education: After graduating from Michigan State University with his bachelor’s degree, Dr. Nies continued on to medical school at Michigan State. He then completed residency training in orthopedic surgery at the University of Wisconsin, where he served as administrative chief resident. After residency, he pursued a fellowship in adult reconstruction at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, giving him the opportunity to focus exclusively on total joint replacement, including total knee replacement and total hip replacement.
