Meet Dr. J. Adam Hamilton, orthopedic surgeon
Thu, Mar 7, 2019
No matter how far and wide Dr. J. Adam Hamilton’s passion for traveling takes him, the Midwest and Manitowoc will always be home.
Hamilton grew up in North Dakota, worked for seven years in Minnesota and now says he loves being part of the Lakeshore community.
The move to Wisconsin was an easy and comfortable one, he says. When an opportunity arose to join the surgical team at Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic in Manitowoc, he couldn’t pass it up.
“It’s a really special clinic,” Hamilton says. “It has a storied history of excellent patient care.”
Hamilton’s heart has always been set on a career as an orthopedic surgeon, he says.
“I’d had a lot of experience growing up with people who were big influences on me who were involved in medicine and healthcare … As I learned more about medicine, the abilities to fix problems, and really reverse problems and restore function to make lives better, it became clear that this was the ultimate place to be for some like myself,” Hamilton says.
He works to restore the quality of life for his patients. Part of his treatment plans include getting to know his patients.
“I love fixing things and fixing problems, but the bulk of what I do is really getting to know people and find out what’s wrong with their body and how it’s affecting their life,” he says. “They’re more than their shoulder, their knee. They’re a whole person.”
Outside of work, family is his priority. He’s a husband and a father of three.
“I have a daughter and twin sons. We travel, go to national parks,” Hamilton says. “We also do a lot of kid activities, like sports.”
Hamilton is also an avid record collector, saying “the best sounds can only be heard on vinyl…the highest quality is always worth the effort.”
Since moving to Manitowoc, he’s enjoyed meeting the people in the community, working with his colleagues, and settling in to his new job.
“I love what I do and I’m just so grateful to be here,” he says. “This is a dream position for me. Being an orthopedic surgeon is a dream job … Being a part of this community has been fantastic.”
Dr. J. Adam Hamilton is an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic. He sees patients in Manitowoc.
