Dr. Hodgkins also spent a year at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York which is one of the most prestigious orthopedic hospitals in the world, where he trained with world experts. This not only exposed him to some of the worst possible injuries but it also inspired his passion for orthopedic fractures.

In 2005, he completed the necessary United States Medical Licensing Exams (USMLE), achieving the highest percentile score in the two qualifying exams necessary to practice medicine before pursuing his formal US residency and double fellowship training in orthopedic.

Dr. H is an athletic person who has competed in sports his entire life. He played (and still occasionally plays) rugby, soccer and golf and has sustained many injuries himself. This has enabled him to have first-hand knowledge of both the physical and psychosocial pain of injury from a patient perspective. His experiences as a patient in doctors’ offices and hospitals also gave him invaluable insight into the importance of patient experience.
