Fellowship Program, Class of 2008-2009

Christopher B. Dewing, M.D.

Dr. Dewing graduated magna cum laude with a degree in social studies from Harvard University where he rowed crew. During medical school at Columbia University, Dr. Dewing excelled in marathons and endurance competitions. After his general surgery internship, Dr. Dewing, a Naval Officer, spent two years as a battalion surgeon with Marine infantry and was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He completed his orthopaedic residency at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. Dr. Dewing's research efforts have been recognized as a finalist for the prestigious Caspari Prize at the ISAKOS Annual Meeting in 2007 for his work on capsular volume in shoulder instability.

Dr. Dewing, his wife Jill, and their three children, Everett, Winston and Georgianna, look forward to moving to the high country, a welcome change in most ways from his current station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

R. Timothy Greene, M.D.

Dr. Greene earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in molecular biology at Princeton University where he also captained the football team. He was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society at the Medical College of Georgia, and he completed his orthopaedic residency at Emory University, where he helped cover the Georgia Tech football squad and other collegiate athletes. He has been involved in several research projects including arthroscopic treatment of coracoid impingement, approaches to mini-open rotator cuff repair, and suture anchor placement for patella tendon repair.

Dr. Greene will be joined in Vail by his wife Lora and their young son Jake, as he anticipates honing his reconstructive sports medicine skills.

Jason M. Hurst, M.D.

Dr. Hurst studied biology and played lacrosse as an undergraduate at Washington and Lee University and went on to pursue a Master's degree in human physiology and biophysics at Georgetown University. He earned his medical degree also at Georgetown and was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. During his orthopaedic residency at Duke University, Dr. Hurst assisted with covering the Duke athletic teams. He received a Piedmont Orthopaedic Society research grant in 2005 for studying hamstring strains and has presented at two AOSSM annual meetings and at the North Carolina Orthopaedic Association.

Vail has been a special place for Dr. Hurst, his wife Emily and their children, Ava and Ryan, as it has been a ski destination for their family throughout the years.

Jarrod T. King, M.D.

Dr. King studied kinesiology at the University of Texas at Austin and then pursued a degree in physical therapy at University of Texas - Southwestern. His four years as a physical therapist peaked his desire to delve deeper into patient evaluation and treatment, so Dr. King pursued a medical degree at UT - San Antonio where he became a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Dr. King then completed his orthopaedic residency at UT - Southwestern and worked on research projects investigating neurologic complications with scoliosis instrumentation and also reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

Dr. King looks forward to sharpening his diagnostic, non-operative and surgical skills at The Steadman Clinic, while utilizing his strong rehab background at a clinic closely connected to

Ryan G. Miyamoto, M.D.

Dr. Miyamoto earned a degree in molecular biology and played football at Princeton University and then attended the University of Maryland School of Medicine. During his orthopaedic residency at NYU - Hospital for Joint Diseases, Dr. Miyamoto's team coverage of competitive football, coupled with his athletic experience, solidified his desire to pursue sports medicine subspecialty training. He has published articles in Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and Foot and Ankle International, and his research interests include PCL reconstruction, medial collateral ligament injuries in the knee, and a biomechanical study on suture placement in SLAP lesion repair.

Dr. Miyamoto plans to build a solid foundation in Vail for a career in academic sports medicine.

Charles J. Petit, M.D.

Dr. Petit graduated cum laude with a degree in economics from Yale University, where he captained the basketball team during his senior year and received two prestigious scholar athlete awards. He then attended medical school at the University of California at San Diego and completed orthopaedic residency at the Harvard Combined Program. Dr. Petit has performed a biomechanical evaluation of rotator cuff repair, and his other research projects include operative treatment of intraarticular fractures in children, variability in the management of proximal humerus fractures, and arthroscopic removal of EndoButton after revision ACL reconstruction.

To complement his skills as an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Petit enjoys fly-fishing and snowboarding and, therefore, looks forward to spending a year in Vail.
