Dr. Hillstead was born and raised in Southwest Wyoming. In high school, he was an all-state athlete, active in student government and in the drama and music departments. His favorite role was Alfred Doolittle from My Fair Lady.

His post-medical school training has included experience in Family Medicine, Anesthesiology, and specialized fellowship training in interventional Pain Management at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
