From there, Dr. Peters earned his medical degree at the Indiana University School of Medicine, serving his internship at Blodgett Memorial Medical Center, and his residency at Grand Rapids Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program. This was followed by a fellowship in spinal surgery at Case Western Reserve.
He practiced for 20 years primarily on the southside of Indianapolis and became a frequent lecturer on spinal treatment. Dr. Peters’ patients included the very young with scoliosis, deformities, and stress fractures of the spine as well as the elderly with degenerative conditions of the neck and back, tumors, and fractures.
From 2008 to 2011 he served as medical director for Medtronic Spine in Memphis, Tenn., interacting with surgeons and medical centers all over the world to bring groundbreaking technology to producing bony fusion in the spine.
Dr. Peters counts among his mentors some of the most renowned orthopedic surgeons in the country: Drs. Alfred Swanson, Geoff Wilber, Henry Bohlman, Ed Simmons, Charles Edwards, and Wade Rademacher.
He and his wife, Sally, live in rural Johnson County and enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren, traveling, golfing, reading, and attending the cinema. He is active within his church and the greater community.
