He received his medical degree from the Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, VA. Dr. Dyer completed his orthopedic surgery residency through the Pinnacle Health Hospital System in Harrisburg, PA. He then went on to complete his Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine fellowship at Orthopaedic Research of Virginia in Richmond. (A fellowship is a specialized year of training that a physician chooses to pursue after completing an orthopedic surgical residency.)
Dr. Dyer and his medical staff primarily treat patients with knee, elbow, and shoulder injuries. His patients range in age from the younger athlete with traumatic sports injuries to the more mature patient with repetitive injuries. He also treats injured workers.
The majority of orthopedic ailments can be treated without surgery through the use of physical therapy and rehabilitation. When surgery is required, a less invasive surgery called arthroscopy is often used. Surgeries such as ACL reconstruction, meniscus repair, rotator cuff repair and shoulder stabilizations are a few surgeries facilitated by arthroscopy. Some patients will require more invasive surgery in order to return to a more active lifestyle. Dr. Dyer performs total shoulder replacements and reverse total shoulder replacements for patients in need.
Dr. Dyer is a member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics, the American Medical Association, and the American Osteopathic Association. He is also an integral part of the Orthopaedic Research of Virginia fellowship program, which is one of the largest Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine fellowship programs on the East Coast. Dr. Dyer is actively involved in the community and serves as Team Physician for King William High School.
Dr. Dyer grew up in Hanover County and attended Patrick Henry High School. He was an NCAA Academic All-American soccer player at Virginia Tech, where he majored in Biology. He enjoys spending time with his wife Ragan and their two daughters, Caroline and Lettie. He also enjoys recreational sports, golf, hunting and fishing.
