Dr. Lohse is an orthopaedic surgeon with fellowship training in hand, wrist, and elbow surgery. He cares for both adults and children. In addition to general orthopaedics, he specializes in upper extremity nerve problems, tendon and ligament injuries, fractures, and arthritis.
Dr. Lohse grew up in Indiana. He received his Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering, graduating with highest honors, from Purdue University. He went on to attend medical school at Northwestern University where he graduated Alpha Omega Alpha (highest honors).
Dr. Lohse completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Washington before going onto subspecialty training in hand and upper extremity surgery at Vanderbilt University.
Dr. Lohse’s care philosophy is centered around education. He believes patients are best able to participate in their care when they thoroughly understand their problem and treatment options. Additionally, Dr. Lohse feels strongly that treatment must be individualized, as the same condition may affect two people very differently.
When not at work, Dr. Lohse enjoys spending time with this wife and three young children. He steals away for a run when possible and otherwise enjoys skiing (snow and water), hiking and camping.
