"Getting people back to whatever they love in life is what drives me as an orthopedic surgeon."
— Dr. Douglas Arnold
Dr. Douglas Arnold has a lifelong sense of duty instilled in him by his educator parents. Dr. Arnold chose to apply this sense of duty to a career in medicine after orthopedic surgeon family members sparked his interest in the field as a teen.
Dr. Arnold joined the Orthopedic Surgery team at Divine Savior Healthcare after earning his medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine, completing an orthopedic surgery internship and residency at UW-Madison, and an Orthopedic Surgery Sports Medicine Fellowship at the University of Miami in Florida. "Following my extensive training, I knew I wanted to return to Wisconsin," states Dr. Arnold. "My wife and I have never felt such a strong, positive sense of community like we do here."
Dr. Arnold is honored to be a member of a surgical team at Divine Savior Healthcare that has the unique ability to not only provide excellent skill and knowledge, but also personal, accountable care while supporting the local economy.
Dr. Arnold enjoys taking care of patients with any orthopedic concern, but has a special interest in sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery and joint replacement. He has served as an assisting physician for UW Badger Athletics, the University of Miami Hurricane Athletics, as well as the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball organization.
"To me, really listening to a patient is critical for excellent patient care," states Dr. Arnold. "I've been an orthopedic patient and I know what it's like to be on the other side of the equation."
Outside of orthopedic surgery, Dr. Arnold enjoys playing guitar, appreciating history and spending time with his family.
"Nobody wants to hear that they can't do something anymore. I know how it feels, and I know what successful care means both as a surgeon and a patient. That's why I do what I do. If you have orthopedic concerns, I'd be honored to provide your care," adds Dr. Arnold.
