He then finished an additional year of fellowship training in pediatric orthopaedics at Nemours Children’s Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. He recently completed a second fellowship in hip preservation surgery at the American Hip Institute in Chicago which entailed not only extensive operative training in cutting edge, minimally invasive surgery of the hip, but also a substantial emphasis on clinical research in hip preservation surgery.

He is an experienced orthopaedic surgeon beginning his career in 2003, as an associate professor of pediatric orthopaedics at Nemours Children’s Clinic, in Jacksonville, Florida. Following this he had a busy private, pediatric orthopaedic practice in Melbourne, Florida from 2004 until 2010.

Dr. Ashberg’s unique training in both pediatric orthopaedic and hip preservation surgery, enables him to provide a comprehensive, head-to-toe orthopaedic service, in caring for not only pediatric and adolescent orthopaedic ailments but also adults with hip problems who may benefit from a minimally invasive solution. This includes the treatment of pediatric trauma/fractures, sports injuries, scoliosis, limb deformity and congenital foot disorders such as club foot. In addition, Dr. Ashberg’s training in hip preservation surgery, allows him to provide minimally invasive treatment of the hip in this cutting edge, rapidly developing area of orthopaedic surgery. This entails the arthroscopic treatment of conditions such as acetabular labral tears, femoracetabular impingement (FAI) and borderline dysplasia.
