Dr. McClure initially trained in orthopedic surgery at Brown University, where he continued to complete a fellowship in orthopedic trauma before continuing to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

He is a member of the Orthopedic Trauma Association, Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America, and the Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society. 

His practice focuses on children who require limb reconstruction and/or lengthening secondary to a variety of causes: trauma, infection, congenital differences and genetic/syndromic differences.
