Dr. Steen currently serves as an orthopaedic surgeon, specializing in shoulder and elbow surgery, at Florida Orthopaedic Associates with privileges at Florida Hospital DeLand and Florida Hospital Fish Memorial. He received sub-specialty training in shoulder and elbow surgery at Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa, Florida where he performed several hundred primary and revision shoulder replacements, reverse shoulder replacements, as well as arthroscopic shoulder and elbow procedures.
Dr. Steen completed his orthopaedic training at Boston University Medical Center, a level I trauma center in downtown Boston, Massachusetts. His training included significant exposure to complex fractures, joint replacement surgery, and arthroscopic surgery. He had a significant interest in basic science research and completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the Boston University Orthopaedic basic science lab that led to numerous peer reviewed articles on topics ranging from stem cell therapy to treatment of hip fractures. He is an author of three orthopaedic book chapters on treatment of shoulder and elbow fractures, and the science of bone healing. He has been invited to present research at multiple, national orthopaedic events. Prior to training, he graduated from Ohio State University College of Medicine with honors in surgery.
Prior to pursuing his medical career, Dr. Steen enjoyed and excelled at sports from a young age. He pitched for the Ohio State Buckeyes, while completing a degree in microbiology and pre-medicine. His first-hand experience with sports-related injuries and rehabilitation piqued his interest in medicine and orthopaedics early on during college.
Dr. Steen was raised in Boise, Idaho and later Hendersonville, Tennessee. He and his wife of nine years, Jen, are excited to become a part of the West Volusia community where they will raise their young son, Jace.
