Dr. Schoenahl graduated from medical school at the University of Strasbourg where he also completed his orthopaedic residency training. While in residency, his research mainly focused on computer-assisted surgery in joint replacements which have provided several national and international presentations. He also trained with Pr Jean-François Kempf and Pr Philippe Clavert, two acknowledged shoulder surgeons in Europe.
After his residency, Dr. Schoenahl had the opportunity and honor to spend one year in Vail as a visiting research scholar (2009-2010) at The Steadman Philippon Research Institute. His schedule was divided between research and clinical activities under the tutelage of Dr. Peter Millett. His research on novel arthroscopic treatments for glenohumeral arthritis has been presented in United States and Europe. He also took advantage of Vail’s exceptional environment to practice his two favorite hobbies which are alpine skiing and golf. He now works in Strasbourg University Hospital as an attendee. He intends to focus more on sports medicine, especially shoulder arthroscopy, cartilage repair and joint conservative treatments.
