From Dr. Looby
“It seems like a career in medicine has always been my destiny. My grandfather and great grandfather were small town physicians in South Dakota and my dad was a practicing OB/GYN in Sioux Falls. As a youth, I suffered three broken arms from various injuries and then blew out two knees playing football that required surgery. So, I guess my interest in orthopedics was inspired by first-hand experience.”

While completing his fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, he was the team orthopedic surgeon for the New England Patriots football team, the Boston Bruins hockey team, the New England Revolution soccer team, and the Harvard University sports teams.
