Since he was very young, Dr. Morris has had a special interest in medicine. His great uncle was a consulting physician for the Chicago police department and coroner for Cook County, the second most populous county in the United States. Besides having a family history in medicine, Dr. Morris had many sports injuries himself which lead to his interest in becoming a physician. He played multiple sports through high school and college including cross country, track & field and basketball. He understands the importance of staying active and the desire of his patients to get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
Dr. Morris is a graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL. He received his podiatric medical degree from Des Moines University of Podiatric Medicine & Surgery. Afterwards he completed residency training as part of the orthopedics department at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, which is one of the top orthopedic centers in the country. It is one of a few podiatric residency programs in the country which is integrated within the orthopedics division and part of a major university hospital. While there he received extensive training in complex reconstructive procedures such as level 1 lower extremity trauma, total ankle replacements, charcot reconstruction, diabetic limb salvage and flat foot reconstruction.
Of special interest to Dr. Morris is the use of regenerative medicine to assist his patients in achieving 100% improvement. Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells and tissue to establish normal function. Dr. Morris does this through the use of injections or grafts including platelet rich plasma, bone marrow aspirate, amniotic tissue and cartilage replacement. By utilizing this approach, he is able to help patients improve pain and function and, in many cases, avoid surgical intervention.
