As a former University of Texas football player on the 2005 National Championship team, Dr. Meijer knows first-hand what an injury means to an athlete. His background provides the foundation for his treatment philosophy and motivation to treat all patients that desire an active lifestyle from the recreational to the professional level. After graduating summa cum laude from the University of Texas, Dr. Meijer attended medical school at UT Southwestern in Dallas where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He completed his orthopaedic residency at Louisiana State University in New Orleans, Louisiana prior to being selected by Dr. James R. Andrews for his Sports Medicine fellowship in Gulf Breeze, Florida. During his fellowship, Dr. Meijer was involved in team coverage for the Washington Redskins, Auburn Tigers Football Team, Pensacola Blue Wahoos Baseball Team (affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds) and many local high school teams. Working with Dr. Andrews and the many talented physicians at the Andrews Institute, Dr. Meijer learned both the clinical and operative skills necessary to treat athletic injuries.
Dr. Meijer has published his research in many peer-reviewed journals and contributed to a textbook chapter concerning elbow injuries in throwing athletes. He remains active in sports medicine research and many professional societies such as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy Association of North America, NFL Physicians Society and the Louisiana Orthopedic Association. Originally from Katy, Texas, he is married with three children.
