Dr. KC Doan was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. After completing high school, he opted to attend an accelerated BA/MD program at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. At the age of 24, Dr. Doan finished undergraduate and medical school training and pursued his dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. During college and medical school, he was active in both D1 collegiate and club level rugby, as well as volunteerism for adaptive sports.
KC then moved to Colorado to attend the University of Colorado Orthopedic Surgery Residency. During his time at CU, he was able to be involved in the care of athletes from the high school level all the way to the collegiate and professional level in Boulder and Denver. He was also involved in various research studies from basic science to clinical outcomes research. Working alongside his co-residents and mentors, he found his niche in Orthopedic Sports Medicine caring for the active population of Colorado.
KC will be joined by his wife Dr. Sarah Doan in Vail. She will be finishing her pediatric training in Des Moines, Iowa, and applying for a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship. Together they are excited to join SPRI for the incredible training and mentorship it offers.
