Dr. Thomas Herschmiller
Dr. Herschmiller joined OMC in 2016 following education and training at prestigious institutions. After his undergraduate studies at Princeton University, he earned his medical degree from the University of Sydney in Australia, with honors.
Dr. Herschmiller, who grew up on Vancouver Island, then performed his internship and residency at Duke University Medical Center, where he held the distinguished position of chief resident from 2013-14. Prior to joining OMC, he completed a yearlong fellowship in orthopedic adult reconstruction at Columbia University Center for Hip and Knee Replacement in New York City.
When patients decide knee replacement is right for them, Dr. Herschmiller generally sees those individuals return to their previous level of activity after surgery.
“A knee replacement surgery is, for some people, a new lease on life,” Dr. Herschmiller says. “It enables you to get out and do the things that you want to be able to do more comfortably without pain.”
Dr. Herschmiller is a former Olympic athlete, having competed at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and the 2004 Olympics in Athens, where he won a silver medal in rowing.
