Dr. Hedman attended the University of Northern Iowa and graduated in 1999 with a Biology major and Chemistry minor. He moved to Chicago, IL after completing his undergraduate studies. In Chicago, Dr. Hedman graduated from Scholl College in 2003 where he received his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine. He then completed a three-year surgical residency at the DVA-Chicago.

During his second year of residency, at the age of 27, he was diagnosed with late onset Type 1 Diabetes and was placed on an insulin pump a couple months following this diagnosis. Due to his extensive training in diabetic limb salvage and his recent diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes, Dr. Hedman has reached out to the American Diabetes Association and is highly involved in their mission to finding a cure for diabetes. Additionally, Dr. Hedman has seen the high incidence of diabetes and its unfortunate complications throughout this professional career in both Chicago and San Antonio.
