Tim Henne, M.D.
Welcome to River Valley Orthopedics! I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some information about myself and my experiences in healthcare. Born and raised in Charlevoix, MI. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science degree, and in 1998 I graduated Alpha Omega Alpha from the University of Michigan Medical School. I then completed a 5 year residency program here in Grand Rapids followed by a year long sports medicine fellowship at Methodist Sports Medicine Center in Indianapolis, IN.
It was a great year, focused on advanced arthroscopic reconstruction and rehabilitation of knee and shoulder injuries. Although part of the job included taking care of the Indianapolis Colts and Purdue University teams, a lot of the skills we were using we applied to speed the recovery of common non-athletic injury as well. Part of the reason I elected to pursue fellowship training was that I wanted to improve my technical skill. The other part was that I wanted to bring this training back to Grand Rapids. I currently am a faculty member in the Michigan State University residency program in which I trained, and am responsible for teaching residents and medical students. During residency, I had the opportunity to work with many of the orthopedic practices in town. I chose to join RVO because of my respect for the other physicians in this group. I remain impressed by their expertise, and dedication to their patients, and am proud to be a part of this tradition.
Outside of orthopedics, I enjoy being a dad to my two kids. I continue to try to be an athlete, but with each passing year the athletes I treat are a little faster, and a little younger than I am. My wife, Amy, is a primary care physician here in town.
