Casey Pyle, D.O.
Dr. Casey Pyle grew up in Lakewood, WA and studied biology, mathematics and chemistry at Pacific Lutheran University, where he also played football and threw javelin. After college he initially pursued a degree in physical therapy at University of Puget Sound. While there, he discovered osteopathic medicine along with a love for the operating room. This path led him to attend medical school at Western University of Health Sciences COMP, where he participated in the pre-doctoral teaching fellowship in osteopathic manipulative medicine. During his time in medical school, his fascination for orthopaedics grew. He shadowed in the OR and attended guest lecturer presentations as often as possible. To Casey, becoming an osteopathic orthopaedic surgeon is the greatest way to combine his love for manual and surgical musculoskeletal medicine. He is eager to maintain his osteopathic skills as he develops his surgical expertise during his time at Community Memorial Hospital. Personally, his interests are somewhat paradoxical, being someone who loves athletic activities while having his imagination firmly planted in the geek realm. From Star Wars to the works of George R. R. Martin or Stephen King’s Dark Tower saga, Casey eats it all up. During his free time, he can often be found outdoors playing disc golf, cycling, or trying his hand at surfing. He hopes to someday bring his first car, a sunshine-yellow 1973 Volkswagen Thing, down to Ventura as it would be right at home in his new town. His current long-term career ambitions are divided between a fellowship in sports medicine or practicing general orthopaedic surgery.
