Orthopedic Surgery Residency, University of Arizona

I follow the philosophy of Dr. Francis W. Peabody who wrote in 1927 that “the secret of the care of the patient is caring for the patient.” I work with patients in a process of shared decision-making in which we look together at the best available evidence to come to an informed preference for musculoskeletal care. I believe it is important to follow the outcome of each patient and the end-result of that decision-making to deliver best practice.


Dr. Dohm is an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. Dohm has over 20 years of experience in orthopedic surgery, medical outcomes, and clinical applications of evidence in orthopedic research.
