Ankur Behl, MDSYCAMORE and SANDWICH, Ill. – KishHealth System welcomes Ankur Behl, MD, orthopedic surgeon, to its medical staff. Dr. Behl earned his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, where he graduated with special distinction with a 4.0 GPA and ranked first in his class.

When asked why he chose orthopedic medicine as his specialty, Dr. Behl said, “My choice of profession was influenced by my passion for technology. When I was young, it was the only interest that rivaled my love of sports, and orthopedic surgery is in many ways defined by the state-of-the-art technology it utilizes. Helping athletes recover using the cutting-edge tools of the field makes orthopedic medicine a fascinating and immensely rewarding profession for me.”
