His five-year orthopedic surgery residency focused on sports medicine, hand surgery and trauma. After completing his training, Patrick honorably served four years as a decorated US Navy medical officer, providing services to the SEALS, Marines, fighter pilots, seaman and indigenous populations in the Republic of the Philippines and Bremerton Naval Hospital. This was followed by an entertainment medicine stint providing orthopedic care to world renown performers and entertainers in Branson, Missouri.
