As a renowned shoulder specialist both nationally and internationally, Dr. Agrawal has treated patients from countries as far as Saudi Arabia, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Japan, Germany, Mexico, and Canada. Dr. Agrawal's interest in shoulder care was born out of an injury he sustained while playing competitive tennis when a lack of available treatment options piqued his interest in advancements in shoulder care. After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Dr. Agrawal went on to earn his medical degree at Indiana University, where he then completed his residency in orthopedic surgery. He also served as a major in the United States Air Force. His injury and growing interest in shoulder mechanics led him to seek advanced fellowship training in shoulder surgery, with some of the world's most highly regarded surgeons. Successful treatment of his own injury has been fundamental in driving him to develop highly specialized expertise in arthroscopic and reconstructive shoulder techniques.
