This revolutionary technique allows for less pain, less time in the hospital, and faster time to walking normally.Dr. Johnson received an academic scholarship to attend The University of Notre Dame, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry.

He has been a team physician for the UTEP Miners Athletic Department, and has served as an Assistant Clinical Professor at University Medical Center and Texas Tech University Medical School in El Paso, where he enjoys teaching the next generation of surgeons. He currently serves on the Board of Directors and is the immediate past Chief of Staff at Sierra Providence East Medical Center, where he was integral in helping the hospital achieve its unprecedented honor of consecutive “Circle of Excellence” designations. Dr. Johnson has also served at Sierra Medical Center and Providence Memorial Hospital both as a physician member of their Board of Directors as well as Vice Chief of Orthopedics. As recently as April of 2014 (this year) Dr. Keith was featured on the cover of the “Top Physicians Issue” of City Magazine.Dr. Keith is a proud father of four beautiful children and a lucky husband to Dr. Tiffani Dobbins Johnson, who is a pediatrician.
