Born in Louisville, KY, Dr. Ubelhart graduated from Trinity High School and the University of Notre Dame, majoring in business. He went on to earn a medical degree from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and did his residency in orthopedic surgery at the National Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Hospital in Arlington, VA.
