While on rotations at the“Sigvard T. Hansen Foot and Ankle Clinic,” Dr. Reber developed an interest in ankle joint replacement surgery. Dr. Hansen helped pioneer the use of ankle replacement to help treat painful ankle arthritis. He was one of the few surgeons in the country performing a high volume of ankle replacement surgeries during this time. He was able to scrub in with Dr. Hansen on a large number of these surgeries. Since that time, Dr. Reber has continued to receive training in joint replacement surgery and is passionate about providing this treatment to his patients in Southern Utah.

In addition, he spent one month in Dresden, Germany learning foot and ankle trauma from one of the most respected Traumatologists in Europe, Professor Hans Zwipp.

Dr. Reber has published a number of papers in peer-reviewed medical journals on the biomechanics of the foot and has received awards for his research.

Dr. Reber is married with 4 children. He enjoys traveling with his wife, spending time with his friends and family, and playing sports with his boys.
