Dr. Jeff Backes, Senior Orthopaedic Surgery Resident, Visits LSO

Lakeshore Orthopaedics recently welcomed Dr. Jeff Backes, a senior orthopaedic surgery resident from Ohio, who chose to spend time with Dr. Ryan Dopirak to gain exposure to cutting-edge techniques in arthroscopic shoulder surgery and sports medicine.

Despite working in a major metropolitan area with multiple teaching institutions, he felt it would be beneficial to travel to Manitowoc to work with Dr. Dopirak based on his reputation as a leading shoulder and sports medicine surgeon.

Dr. Backes is aspiring to become a specialist in orthopaedic sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. He is a former Mr. Ohio football player who went on to a successful Big 10 football career at Northwestern, where he was a starting cornerback and an Academic All American.
