Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Murphy is an orthopedic surgeon who has practiced in San Diego since 1988. He specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. He completed his residency in San Diego in 1985 and was Board Certified in 1987 and recertified in 1996 and 2006. He obtained a CAQ (Certificate of Added Qualification) in Sports Medicine in 2012 from the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM). His career led him to serve in the United States Navy as an orthopedic surgeon in Naples where he was head of the Department of Orthopedics for two years. He was also mobilized to serve in Desert Storm in 1991.
Dr. Murphy continues to treat sports medicine injuries, both surgically and nonoperatively, specializing in shoulder and knee injuries. He is one of the very few orthopedic surgeons in the San Diego County and Southern California areas who employs Sonorex treatments (Shock Wave Therapy, a form of lithotripsy) for chronic joint injuries and tendonitis rather than surgery. The most common form of tendonitis includes lateral epicondylitis at the elbow, patellar tendonitis at the knee, Achilles tendonitis at the ankle, and plantar fasciitis in the foot. All of these conditions can now be treated non-operatively with equal success compared to surgery.
