On a Personal Note
Dr. Ulibarri grew up on a ranch south of Douglas, Wyoming.

He graduated from the University of Wyoming with a BS in Zoology. Subsequently he obtained a Doctor or Chiropractic at Palmer College in Davenport, IA. Wishing to further his study of the spine, Dr. Ulibarri completed his medical degree and orthopedic surgery training at the University of Wisconsin, and finally, his spine surgery training at the University of Pittsburgh. Following this, he and his family spent several years in Knoxville, TN, where Dr. Ulibarri worked as a spinal surgeon at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville Hospital.
