Signature Orthopedics is pleased to welcome Dr. Christine C. Piper to the O’Fallon location this fall.
Dr. Piper received her medical degree Jefferson Medical College, and completed her fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.
"I fell in love with shoulder and elbow surgery for two main reasons: the anatomy, and the procedural variety," Piper said. "As a shoulder and elbow specialist, I perform joint replacements, arthroscopic surgery, nerve related procedures, and fix fractures."
Piper initially became interested in a career in medicine after shadowing her father, a spine surgeon, at work.
“My father, Terry Piper, is a spine surgeon right here in St. Peters, Missouri,” she said. “After shadowing him in the operating room, I knew this vocation was calling me. Observing his unwavering dedication to his patients taught me more about being a doctor than any textbook ever could.”
