Dr. Peter Mulhern is an orthopedic surgeon based in Ocoee, Florida, where he practices at the Florida Center for Orthopedics. While he has been in practice for more than twenty-five years, over the last four he has focused on joint replacement surgery for hips, knees, and shoulders.
Joint replacement surgery isn’t the answer for all people suffering from joint pain. But for some patients, it can be life changing. Some people have so much joint pain that it is difficult for them to do such ordinary tasks as walking, climbing stairs, or even getting up out of a chair. For those whose joint problems limit what they are able to do due to chronic pain and who experience associated mood changes, joint replacement surgery may be the best option.
Dr Peter Mulhern has practiced general orthopedic surgery since completing his medical residency in 1988. He holds a medical degree from the Boston University Medical School and did his graduate training at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington. He is Board Certified and he has been a member of the American Academy or Orthopedic Surgeons since 1990. Before coming to the Florida Center for Orthopedics, he was on the staff of the Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala and Lady Lake, Florida, where he performed general and reconstructive orthopedic surgeries.
