Dr. Deren Bagsby is a native of Cincinnati, completing his undergraduate degree at Hanover College, before receiving a Masters in Biology from Purdue University, both in Indiana. He then went on to complete his medical school training at Indiana University in Indianapolis, where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. Also, he completed his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at Indiana University, where he trained in multiple aspects of orthopedic surgery, with a specific interest in fracture care and total joint replacement.
During his time at Indiana University, he authored over a dozen peer review publications and has presented at multiple national meetings. Dr. Bagsby continued his training by completing an Adult Reconstruction Fellowship at Norton Hospital in Louisville Kentucky, becoming an expert in primary and revision hip and knee replacement. During his fellowship, he completed over 400 primary total hip replacements through the revolutionary, muscle sparing direct anterior approach. This approach utilizes an incision on the front of the hip that allows the joint to be replaced by moving muscles aside along their natural tissue planes, without detaching any tendons.
