Dr. Knight is a Northwest native who grew up in Redmond, Washington. He left the Seattle area to pursue his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University where he was an engineering major. This was followed by graduate work in Biomedical Engineering at Arizona State University before starting medical school.

His medical training took him to New York State for most of a decade including four years of medical school at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx and five years of orthopedic training in the SUNY at Buffalo program.

He then moved to Texas for an additional year of fellowship training with world renowned experts focused on hand and wrist surgery at the Hand Center of San Antonio.

In 2009, he was thrilled to return to the Northwest with his family to practice at Hope Orthopedics in Salem, Oregon. Outside of practice, he stays busy playing tennis and keeping up with his wife and 6 children as well as serving as a youth leader in his local church congregation.
