Mountain Medic and Safari Medic have given us the opportunity to integrate our two passions: the great outdoors and healthcare. Our founder and CEO grew up hunting, fishing, and exploring in rural western Pennsylvania and would eventually go on to medical school and become an orthopaedic surgeon.
After the many arduous years of training, he was finally able to get back to what he loved – big game – and in 2004 began traveling the world in pursuit of these majestic animals in their native, sometimes harsh, environment. As an active duty US Navy surgeon until 2006, he gained invaluable field trauma experience that would serve him, and others, well on these adventures.
His next “duty station” would be the mountains of Wyoming, where he started a surgical practice from the ground up and was the only orthopaedic surgeon in the area for many years. During these busy, but rewarding years, an idea was born – to provide professional grade medical kits for fellow hunters and adventurers as well as travel medicine advice for those intrepid hunters headed to the austere corners of the earth.
We are proud to offer our customers the very best medical kits available, each one designed and hand built by an actual surgeon, with 20 years of experience in both medicine and wilderness travel and with military service. Let Mountain Medic and Safari Medic give you peace of mind – for when the unthinkable happens and seconds count.
