The founder of College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, Bishop Fenwick bought Mount Saint James in 1843. The site the Cathedral of the Holy Cross overlooks Worcester, Massachusetts, Dr Peter Mulhern choice for his higher education after graduation from Canisius High School in Buffalo, New York. Classes commenced in November of 1843 in the old Catholic boarding school on the site with students from elementary through high school education levels. As the College of the Holy Cross continued to grow, through the destruction by fire of its main building in 1852 to the eventual success of its efforts to secure a state charter in 1865, the institution slowly conquered the anti-Catholicism which had threatened to end its founding.
Dr. Mulhern earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biology from College of the Holy Cross in 1978. Holy Cross graduates who apply to medical schools, as did Dr. Mulhern, have a 91% acceptance rate, a testament to the quality of Holy Cross scientific and technical education standards. Holy Cross’ dedication to academic excellence is an outgrowth of its Jesuit mission, to pursue a special responsibility to the world’s poor and powerless. In its quest for ever-increasing growth and relevance to the struggles of today’s poor and underprivileged, Holy Cross has gained a reputation as a bastion of the Catholic Left, even while strongly clinging to the virtues of the Jesuit order.
Peter Mulhern completed his residency at Georgetown University Hospital, today known as MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in 1988. Prior to his residency, Mulhern took his Medical Doctor degree at Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts in 1983. Boston University School of Medicine, or BUSM, is distinguished in that it is the first such academic institution in the world to enroll and educate female physicians.
Total hip replacement as an invasive technique to treat the ravages of arthritis is practiced across the United States by Orthopaedic Surgeons like Peter Mulhern. Peter Mulhern, a renowned Orthopaedic Surgeon in Ocoee, Florida, performs total hip replacement for those who suffer from failed joints. Rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, traumatic arthritis and protrusion acetabuli are only a few of the profusion of conditions which are associated with joint failure and the orthopaedic surgery undertaken to return the joint to proper functioning without pain.
Surgical professionals like Peter Mulhern apply their skills only after other alternative therapies, like physical therapy and medication, have not been successful. The development of the artificial joint, or hip prosthesis used today, began in 1962 with the work of Sir John Charnley. The hip prosthesis of today has several variations, including cemented and uncemented, and the operation is often performed so well that active and professional athletes return to their sport successfully afterward.
The choice of total or partial hip joint replacement and type of prosthesis is at the discretion of professional Orthopaedic Surgeons like Dr Peter Mulhern, who customizes each surgery to maximize the success of the patient’s new joint. Post-operatively, the most common risk is the danger of dislocation, loosening, infection, metal sensitivity, nerve palsy, pain or osteolysis (the destruction or disappearance of bone tissue. Of these, orthopedists deal most commonly with dislocation. During the surgery, the femoral head is removed from the socket and hip implants are positioned before the hip is returned to its proper position. Soft tissues which have been cut or injured during surgery take eight to twelve weeks to heal, and it is during this period that the ball of the hip can dislodge from its socket. Those Orthopaedic Surgeons who perform many hip replacement operations each year have lower percentages of dislocation among their patients.
Patients who are experiencing fracture nonunion consult with orthopaedic specialist Dr Peter Mulhern about the possibility of a metabolic or surgical intervention to correct deformity and stimulate appropriate bone healing, often using bone graft from the patient’s own bone marrow or bone graft substitutes along with rigid internal fixation of the fracture.

Peter Mulhern works today as a professional Orthopaedic Surgeon in Ocoee, Florida. Mulhern’s offices, the Florida Orthopaedic Society in Ocoee, specialize in providing the finest orthopaedic care. Human musculoskeletal systems are subject to a variety of difficulties besides injury. Degenerative disease of the spine, hands, feet, knee, hip, shoulder and elbow, deformities, metabolic imbalances, bone or muscle tumors, infections and congenital deformities are a few of the conditions which may interfere with the form or function of the spine, extremities and other structures in the human body. Orthopaedic Surgeons like Dr. Mulhern strive to examine, diagnose and then restore the proper form and function of the extremities and the spine, using physical, surgical and medical means to do so. Dr. Mulhern has been especially concerned in the last four years of his practice with surgery for joint replacement in the hips, knees and shoulders.
Orthopaedic Surgery appealed to Surgical Resident Peter Mulhern, who specialized in the discipline while at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Mulhern practices today in Ocoee, Florida.
Dr. Peter Mulhern finds that joint replacement occupies a great deal of his surgical work, especially for older Americans. Hip replacement substitutes the faulty hip joint with a prosthetic implant which can involve a total substitution or partial replacement. Joint replacement through orthopaedic surgery is most commonly undertaken to relieve pain from fractures or arthritis inflammation. A total replacement of the hip joint requires removal of both the acetabulum, the concave surface of the pelvis, and the femoral head, a procedure called total hip arthroplasty. A hemiarthroplasty is the procedure which replaces only the femoral head. Hip replacement is described as the most common orthopaedic operation today.
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.
Peter Mulhern began practicing orthopaedic surgery at the Florida Center for Orthopaedics in Ocoee in late 2016. He received his medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine in 1983, and did his internship and residency at Georgetown University Hospital. Before joining the Florida Center for Orthopaedics, he worked at the Munroe Regional Medical Center in Lady Lake, Florida.
Dr. Peter Mulhern began practicing general orthopedic surgery shortly after completing his medical residency at Georgetown University Hospital in 1988. He earned his medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine in 1983.
“I have just started in November at the Florida Center for Orthopedics in Ocoee, Florida,” he said in December 2016. “Over the last four years especially, I have been involved primarily with Joint Replacement surgery for hips, knees and shoulders.”
In knee replacement surgery, an incision is made over the front of the patient’s knee. The patient, of course, is under anesthesia. The surgeon moves the patella (kneecap) out of the way, and then cuts the ends of the thigh bone and lower leg to fit the replacement knee. The replacement knee, usually made of metal and plastic, is then attached to create new surfaces for the joint. There is minimal trauma to the muscles and tendons around the new, artificial joint, and the incision is closed.
Joint replacements such as this were once a highly-advanced technique, but by now have become commonplace. More than a million joint replacements are performed in the United States each year. Dr Peter Mulhern is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and a member of the Florida Orthopedic Society.
