He completed his residency in neurosurgery at the University of Kentucky in 1978. In 1982 he founded Neurosurgical Consultants in Owensboro, Kentucky. In 1999, the administration and employees of Owensboro Mercy Health System awarded Bill the President's Award. He retired from Neurosurgical Consultants in 2003 and moved to Oahu, Hawaii where he worked as a neurosurgeon at Kaiser Permanente until 2006.
