Orthopedic Surgeon
Fellowship-trained in Sports Medicine


Dr. Carl Schillhammer received his B.A. in Biology from Dartmouth College. After graduating from Dartmouth College, he attended the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle before heading back east to complete his orthopedic surgery residency training at the State University of New York in Syracuse.

From 2014-2015, Dr. Schillhammer completed an Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship at Taos Orthopedic Institute in New Mexico.

The orthopedic Sports Medicine fellowship was an opportunity to advance his expertise in shoulder and knee procedures from minimally invasive arthroscopic cases (such as rotator cuff repair, labrum repair, meniscus repair, cartilage restoration and ACL reconstruction) to open joint restoration procedures (knee replacement, severe shoulder instability, and shoulder replacement).

In addition to the operative experience, the sports medicine fellowship provided numerous experiences taking care of athletes with unique challenges in several sports from football, basketball, skiing, snowboarding and many other outdoor activities.

After living in a destination outdoor community, Dr. Schillhammer is adept in treating trauma related to recreational sports such as skiing, hiking, biking, and running.

The Schillhammer family was drawn to the region both by its natural beauty and small town charm and values. They frequently take advantage of the local area's trails, ski slopes, rivers, and lakes. His interests also include ski mountaineering, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing, hunting, fly fishing, and baseball.

His professional memberships include the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Arthroscopy Association of North America, and American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine.
