He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Madigan Army Medical Center and the Harvard Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Fellowship in Boston.

Dr. Eichinger is a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and a member of the prestigious American Orthopaedic Association of which fewer than 5% of all orthopaedic surgeons are a member of.  He is on the editorial board for the Journal of Arthroscopy and Related Research and is a reviewer for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, American Journal of Sports Medicine, Clinical Orthopaedics and Clinical Research, Orthopedics, Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Military Medicine.

Dr. Eichinger has presented research and lectured at numerous national meetings.

He has published over 64 peer-reviewed scientific articles and book chapters in such journals as the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Journal of Arthroscopy and Related Research, Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Military Medicine.

Dr. Eichinger is active in research and is the recipient of several grants regarding shoulder arthroplasty outcomes, complex shoulder instability treatment and clavicle fracture treatment, rotator cuff outcomes, and shoulder arthritis among others. 

Dr. Eichinger is a team physician for the Charleston Riverdogs (New York Yankees) Professional baseball team. He has experience treating and caring not only for professional athletes but also elite special operations soldiers during his time in the military.

Dr. Eichinger’s special areas of interests include sports medicine and arthroscopic, minimally invasive surgical repair for overhead and throwing athletes including baseball, tennis, swimming and golf. He has special expertise and training in complex shoulder instability including bone loss for contact athletes in basketball, football, boxing, rugby, and mixed martial arts. He also has expertise in the treatment of sports injuries to baseball and softball players, failed prior shoulder and elbow surgery as well as complex clavicle (collarbone), AC joint separations, shoulder (proximal humerus), and elbow fractures along with total joint replacement surgery of the shoulder and elbow.
