Michael P. Murphy, DO

Philosophy of Care

I believe in the importance of holistic treatment for all orthopaedic conditions. My treatment plans consistently incorporate multiple therapies so that the person as a whole will be treated rather than just the injured limb. During my fellowship training I was able to contribute as one of the team physicians for the Detroit Pistons (NBA) and the Detroit Shock (WNBA). These experiences allowed me to have a unique understanding of the needs of athletes and best practices for treating sports injuries. Additionally, I was awarded the opportunity to join the Kerlan Jobe Clinic for Sports Medicine and Rush University Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery as a traveling fellow.
