Brian Willie


Brian joined Shoreline Orthopaedics in 2014. Experienced in all specialties of orthopaedics, he works as a dedicated member of our sports medicine team. Brian’s interest in sports medicine began while being active in sports himself.  He experienced sports injuries of his own and cared for other athletes as an athletic training student in high school and college. Brian’s schooling in athletic training and exercise science gave him a broad understanding of many aspects of orthopaedic injuries and athletics. His compassion and determination allows him to provide patients with the individual attention and care they need to achieve the best recovery possible.

Brian received his bachelor of science from Western Michigan University in 2012. He then moved to Grand Rapids where he attended Grand Valley State University for Physician Assistant Studies, graduating in 2014. His master’s thesis, “The Functional Outcomes of Tibial Plateau Fractures,” gave him a great perspective on evidence-based medicine and the importance of the patient’s recovery relating to their quality of life. He has maintained certification as a Physician Assistant by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and is an active member in local and national PA organizations.

During his education, Brian’s volunteer participation included Borgess Hospital and a variety of other organizations. He is eager to spend time with student athletes in the West Michigan area. In his free time, Brian enjoys golfing, skiing, tennis, and pickle ball.
