    Dr. Aaron Perdue is an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Michigan Hospital and Health System. After growing up in Lapeer, Michigan, he attended Kalamazoo College for his undergraduate studies, followed by Chicago Medical School to obtain his medical degree. During his residency at the University of Michigan Hospital, he was drawn to the complexity of trauma, which led him to pursue a trauma fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Perdue then joined the Orthopaedic Department at Vanderbilt as an Assistant Professor for three years until returning to the University of Michigan Hospital in July 2013.

    Dr. Perdue's clinical interests include the treatment of pelvic and acetabular fractures, complex extremity fractures, open fractures (broken bones poking through the skin) as well as treatment of malunions (broken bones that heal "crooked" and nonunions (broken bones that do not heal).

    In addition to his clinical interests, Dr. Perdue's research interests include pelvic and hip instability, femoral neck fractures in young patients, improving outcomes in fractures involving joints, open fractures, patient oriented outcome in operative and non-operative treated fractures, acetabular fractures, and biomechanics for optimal distal femoral healing.

    Dr. Perdue is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, and is an active member in multiple societies including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Orthopaedic Trauma Association, Michigan Orthopaedic Society, and the University of Michigan Orthopaedic Alumni Society.
