I am originally from Evansville, Indiana. I earned my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois. I completed medical school at the University of Illinois in Chicago, and did my Orthopedic Surgery Internship and Residency at the University of Iowa. After residency, I completed a combined Neurosurgery/ Orthopedic Surgery Spine Fellowship at the Leatherman Spine Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
As a spine surgeon, my interests include treatment of adult and pediatric spinal disorders including scoliosis, complex revision, trauma, and minimally invasive spine surgery. I hope to provide the same excellent, compassionate care to my patients that I would expect for my own family.
Dr. Graves is based out of the Orthopedic Center of Illinois in Springfield, and travels to Decatur Orthopedic Center.
