He is Board Certified in Orthopaedics and has a Certificate of Added Qualification in Surgery of the Hand (CAQSH).

Following graduation, he continued advanced training in his chosen specialty of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. As a Chief resident in his senior year, he was exposed to numerous complex cases at the University.

At the completion of his Residency, Dr. Miller went on to do an extra year-long training program, or fellowship, subspecializing in Hand/Wrist and Upper Extremity Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dr. Miller is an active member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and lectures often in the community on hand and wrist topics. As a specialist in surgery of the hand, wrist and upper extremity, his practice is primarily focused on nerve problems, arthritic conditions, and traumatic injuries. Dr. Miller believes in a team-oriented approach to treatment, which often involves physical and occupational therapists to maximize functional outcome for his patients. In fact, Town Center Orthopaedic Associates has multiple certified hand therapists on staff which enables Dr. Miller to work closely with his patients during their recovery.
