Peter Mulhern: Joint Replacement Surgery

Peter Mulhern is an Orthopedic Surgeon who has been practicing medicine since 1988. Dr Peter Mulhern has been licensed to practice in Massachusetts, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, and the District of Columbia, and is currently living and working in Florida.

While he spent much of his career practicing general orthopedic surgery, that has evolved. “Over the last four years especially,” he said, “I have been involved primarily with Joint Replacement surgery for hips, knees and shoulders.”

Joint replacement is no longer seen as the cutting-edge surgery is once was. More than a million people now undergo joint replacement surgery in the United States every year. Most of those surgeries have successful outcomes, with patients reporting reduced pain and improved mobility. Patients who have experienced debilitating long-term pain and stiffness in knees and hips are likely candidates for a joint replacement operation.
