Cool fact about Dr. Pack: He was a third-generation member of the Michigan Marching Band!

Call Dr. Pack a perfectionist. Call him detail-oriented. He’s been hearing those words all his life -- and he likes it. He started building and fixing things as a kid. Those early experiences planted the seeds of his medical career. When he’s not fixing hips and knees, Dr. Pack enjoys spending time with his wife, daughters and dog, listening to music of all kinds, playing board games, studying history, biking, downhill skiing, boating and anything outside – even yard work.

Note from Dr. Pack

Hello, and Welcome!

     Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me.  I grew up in a small Northern Michigan farming town, the oldest of four siblings.  My parents instilled in all of us a sense of not only obligation to help others, but the joy of doing so.  Ultimately, I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to continue this legacy.  My attraction to orthopedics began with a love of how things work.  Working with my dad, a cabinet maker and family handyman, I enjoyed learning to fix things...and so did the orthopedic surgeon who fixed my broken ankle in junior high.  An eight-week recovery was plenty of time to contemplate the importance of his job!  In college, I studied in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan, while working summers and weekends as a nursing assistant and orthopedic tech at the hospital.  By the time I got to med school, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Similarly, in residency I quickly identified that I wanted to be a hip and knee replacement specialist -- a niche that most uniquely feeds my interests in biology, mechanics, complex problem solving, and improving people’s quality of life relatively quickly, with durable and predictable results. 

     As a fellowship-trained minimally invasive hip & knee replacement surgeon, I enjoy accomplishing everything that traditional surgery does, with innovative approaches, smaller incisions, and less trauma to tissues.  It is a privilege to provide patients the faster recoveries and shorter hospital stays that these advanced techniques allow, without compromising long-term, proven outcomes.   Additionally, as part of a West Michigan regional referral center, my interest and extensive experience in complex revision (re-replacement) hip and knee procedures allows me to address a wide array of hip and knee problems.

My team and I look forward to assisting you with your condition!
