A board certified orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. O’Callaghan graduated from Michigan State University in 2010 with a Bachelor Of Science in Microbiology with concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology, followed by his graduation from the Michigan State College of Human Medicine in 2014. He completed his Orthopaedic surgery residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2019, followed by a Hand and Upper Extremity surgical fellowship at the University of Virginia.

Dr. O’Callaghan’s hand, wrist, and elbow special interests include fracture care, arthritis, joint replacement, sports injuries, and pediatric trauma and deformity. He is trained in endoscopic carpal tunnel release, and he is an instructor for other surgeons. From the onset of a patient relationship, Dr. O’Callaghan believes in the importance of communication and engagement, ensuring patients fully understand treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical. He shares, “When I am with a patient, I try to not just understand their condition but what it is holding them back from their treatment goals. From there, my job is to provide education and come together on a treatment plan. Helping patients continue to do what they love is the real reward.”

Together with his wife and two young children, Dr. O’Callaghan lives in Petoskey, where Bay Street Orthopaedics & Spine is his main practice location. In addition to Petoskey, Dr. O’Callaghan is accepting patient appointments at the Charlevoix, Gaylord, and Cheboygan locations.

In his spare time, Dr. O’Callaghan enjoys being active and playing most all sports, especially soccer, tennis, golf, and basketball. He also enjoys various outdoor recreational activities that northern Michigan offers, including hiking, kayaking, and skiing.
