Biography:
"Returning patients to the activities they love most...that's the essence of sports medicine."

Born and raised in Wanatah, as small northwest Indiana farming town, Dr. Cary Guse was the first in his family to attend college. A 4-sport athlete and class valedictorian in high school, he continued his scholastic and athletic endeavors while attending nearby Franklin College, participating in both basketball and baseball and receiving the prestigious Ben Franklin Distinguished Scholar award. He went on to graduate summa cum laude while graduating first in his class.

Due to a myriad of family medical hardships, Dr. Guse knew early in his life that he wanted a career in medicine and was accepted earlly admission to the Indiana University School of Medicine where he went on to receive his medical degree. It was there he was introduced to the world of orthopedic surgery and the variety of conditions, problems and procedures that it entails. Being a former collegiate athlete and self-confirmed weekend warrior he was logically drawn to the subspecialty field of sports medicine.

He went on to complete his five year Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the Indiana University School of Medicine and continued on for another year of advanced training in sports medicine and arthroscopy at The Orthopaedic Center/TRIA Orthopaedics in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While there he was exposed to the most current and cutting-edge techniques for surgery of the knee and shoulder. In addition, he received extensive training on how to care for the whole athlete, from prevention and conditioning to rehabiliation.

Dr. Guse has served on the medical staff for the Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Wild, Minnesota Twins, Indianapolis Indians and Gustavus Adolphus Gusties. In addition, he has served as the head physician for serveral high school teams and provided coverage for a number of national sporting events.

A member of the American Medical Association, Indiana State Medical Association, Midwest Orthopedic Society, Indiana Orthopedice Society, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine and a candidate member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dr. Guse has published several articles and remains very active in the field of sports medicine education and research.

Dr. Guse and his wife Kristi, whom he met while attending Franklin College, are thrilled to be in Indiana and in particular are excited about becoming active members of the southern Indiana community. When not in the office, in the training room, or on the field he can usually be found playing with their two children Jacob and Jenna.
