Late into his orthopaedic residency, Dr. Wilson met internationally renowned French professor Pascal Boileau, MD. He applied and was selected to train in Nice, France, with Dr. Boileau for three months. Upon the conclusion of his initial training, Dr. Wilson was invited to advance his training for the remainder of the year. Dr. Wilson credits his time with Dr. Boileau for his passion for shoulder specialty care. The innovations and practices he learned under Dr. Boileau are critical in how Dr. Wilson operates his practice. His focus for patients is to get them moving and back to their desired activities as quickly as possible. Maintaining a patient's lifestyle and quality of life is always his primary goal.

Dr. Wilson joined the Steamboat Orthopaedic and Spine Institute (SOSI) in 2018. He is a member of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Medical Pool, working with “weekend warriors'' and Olympic athletes.

He completed a sports-medicine fellowship at Taos Orthopaedic Institute in Taos, New Mexico, and a complex shoulder-surgery fellowship at Insitut Universitaire Locomoteur et du Sport in Nice, France.

Dr. Wilson practices out of both Steamboat and Winter Park (Fraser) SOSI locations. Dr. Wilson recently married his best friend Tatum, in Dec 2020.
