As an orthopedic surgeon, he enjoys the technical aspects of his profession, but thrives on the rewards he receives from interacting with his patients. “I gain the greatest satisfaction from helping people return to their regular activities and improving their quality of life. It's very rewarding to allow them to do the things they enjoy.”
Dr. Devinney earned his bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville and his doctor of osteopathic medicine from the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth.
