Dr. Balam returned to Memorial in 2016 after practicing in rural Washington State. Prior to returning, he utilized his OB fellowship training and procedural skills acquired in residency to care for the underserved population in Omak, Washington. He has special interests in women’s health, sports medicine and the benefits of Osteopathy. In 2018, he began as the OB Fellowship Director and is an ALSO certified instructor. He is currently developing the osteopathic curriculum at Memorial.

He and his wife have been married since 2002 and take great pride in their three children. He is active as a team physician for USA weightlifting and the International Weightlifting Federation, where he helps care for beginner to Olympic-level athletes. In addition to medical coverage and being a certified referee, he competes in weightlifting and is trying to qualify for international competition.

Why Memorial: I completed residency and an OB Fellowship at Memorial, and after being in private practice for several years after, I realized the people and the environment here (Memorial) are exceptional. As cliché as it sounds, this group of faculty are my family and make me better every day. I can’t ask for anything more than that!
