Dr. Daniel Mullen has served as a leader in local and national sports medicine for more than 20 years. In 2014 Dr. Mullen was featured in Sports Illustrated as a "Top Orthopedic Surgeon in America". Professional teams, colleges, and many local high schools have chosen Dr. Mullen as their official team physician. He has been their official orthopedist in recognition of the advanced training, experience, and ability to understand the complexities of sports injuries.
Physician Evaluation Following a Sports Injury
Due to the unpredictable nature of sports injuries, Dr. Mullen and his team have time blocked in their schedules each week dedicated to sports injury evaluations. Immediately following a sports injury, calling the office will ensure an appointment within 1-2 days of injury or even sooner, depending on the injury. When an athlete or designated parent calls for an appointment regarding a sports injury, please make his staff aware of the name of the school and the sport so we can place the athlete in one of these reserved appointment slots. Dr. Mullen is committed to giving amateur athletes access to top level medical care commensurate with that of a collegiate or professional athlete.
Dr. Mullen and his team provide medical evaluation and procedures (surgical and non-surgical) for athletes at every level including:
Cartilage restoration surgery
Fractures and musculoskeletal trauma
Joint replacement surgery
Hip and Knee surgery
Post concussion evaluation and management
Shoulder and Elbow surgery
Dr. Mullen has a longstanding reputation in the community of being highly collaborative, working closely with local hospitals, surgical centers, trainers, physical therapists, rehab specialists, and associate physician offices to ensure that patients and athletes receive the most comprehensive care. The primary goal is to get athletes back to enjoying sports and the activities they love, quickly but safely, both on the competitive and recreational levels.
