Dr. Keyes and his boys are passionate about hunting. As a family, they also enjoy travel when possible. Warm weather climates and cities throughout the United States have been common destinations for recreation. Particularly, they enjoy taking an annual fishing trip to the Florida gulf coast.

I gravitated towards joint replacement as it is extremely rewarding to relieve my patients of their arthritis pain and restore their function. I am motivated by my patients’ expectations and constantly strive for clinical excellence. Throughout my practice, I have been involved as an educator. I enjoy educating my patients on their treatment options to help them meet their personal goals. I have a strong interest in robotic joint replacement as I believe this technology allows for improved position, precision and balance for my patients. – Brian Keyes, DO
