John Capelle ('07), Orthopedic Surgeon, Joins Novant Health (NC)

When he was 5 years old, John Capelle (SJCS '07) received a toy doctor's briefcase as a gift from his aunt. He decided right then that he wanted to be a doctor one day.

When he was a student at St. Joe's, John went on a medical mission trip to San Salvador, El Salvador, a journey that strengthened his desire to become a physician.

In August, Dr. John Capelle, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand surgery, joined the orthopedic department at Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center in Bolivia, North Carolina.

John and his wife, Eloise, have a 3-year-old son, Jack, and another boy due in January.
