Darrin Eakins Wilmington NC

Darrin Eakins is a transition specialist. After being forced to leave his previous career as an orthopedic physician due to disability and illness, he pursued new hobbies and career possibilities in stock trading and investing. Having more time for activities has let him acquire a passion for pickleball and rekindle a familial love of art.

Much of his current work, including biomedical stock analysis, is informed by his past as an orthopedic physician. This specialty analytical profession investigates the investment possibilities of pharmaceutical and biotech firms. From a surgeon's perspective, Eakins can study items in development from numerous businesses from multiple views and identify whether buying is a good moment.

His stock market interest extends beyond medical equities, and he has become an avid futures trader. Successful futures trading necessitates in-depth market knowledge and the ability to spot good possibilities. Traders may buy futures contracts to protect themselves against market swings or to speculate. When a futures contract expires, one must be able to speculate on the future price of a stock index or commodity rather than owning an individual stock.

Darrin Eakins previously worked full-time in Willmington, North Carolina, as an orthopedist specializing in sports medicine. An orthopedic surgery expert treats problems with bones, joints, and muscles. Tumors, congenital impairments, degenerative disorders, and sports injuries are also treated. Eakins specializes in sports medicine injuries, including prevalent pickleball injuries.

He received his medical degree from Wake Forest School of Medicine after getting an undergraduate degree in science from Baylor University. He received his diploma in 1992. He then finished a 6-year surgical internship and orthopedic surgery residency at Oregon Health Sciences University. He also completed an additional fellowship year at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia.

He worked as an orthopedic and sports medicine physician for over 20 years after his medical degree.

Even with his hectic schedule as a surgeon, Eakins made time to make a difference in the lives of others. That is why, in 2001, he gave a house to Habitat for Humanity.
