Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
BioDr. Jeremy Stanek is a sports medicine physiatrist who specializes in performing arts medicine, sports medicine, and musculoskeletal medicine. He enjoys treating musicians, dancers, athletes of all abilities, and anyone who wants to become or stay active. He performs diagnostic ultrasound as well as ultrasound-guided and fluoroscopic-guided procedures.
Dr. Stanek grew up on a small farm near the town of Qulin, Missouri. He received degrees in music performance from the University of Missouri and University of New Mexico and had a career as a professional trumpet player until developing focal dystonia (musicians' dystonia). Wanting to utilize his experience and education as a performer, he chose medicine as his next career. He graduated from the University of Missouri School of Medicine then completed his intern year at the Medical College of Wisconsin, followed by advanced residency training in physiatry (physical medicine & rehabilitation) at the University of Missouri. In 2018, Dr. Stanek completed a fellowship in sports medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, where he also was a provider in the Medical Program for Performing Artists, treating members of the St. Louis Ballet and his former colleagues in the St. Louis Symphony and community bands and orchestras. He has also provided coverage for a variety of events such as MMA fights, endurance sports events, and was a team physician for Washington University Athletics.
He conducts research in performing arts medicine and has given numerous conference presentations. Additionally, he enjoys speaking with professional and student musicians/dancers to educate them on arts medicine and avoiding injuries. In his free time, he enjoys working on old cars, baking, and participating in triathlons and other endurance sports.

Ruopeng (Robin) Sun
Physical Sci Res Scientist, Orthopaedic Surgery
BioDr. Sun is the research scientist at the Wearable Health Lab. He received his Ph.D. in Human Performance from Indiana University, MS in mechanical engineering from Stony Brook University. His research focused on using novel technology to study human movement as a function of aging, promote functional independence and enhance quality of life. He is particularly interested in investigating balance/locomotion control and risk of falling among ambulatory populations and translating novel research findings and technology into clinic/community-based settings to enhance healthy independent aging. His recent work utilized machine learning and augmented reality tools to enhance precise and efficient functional mobility assessment.
