      Dr. Murphy conducted robotic surgery to repair my Mitral valve in 2011. I am pleased to say that I have no limitations, enjoy weightlifting, backpacking (15 miles a day average during trips), and bicycling. I am eternally grateful for his skill and ability to keep me relaxed about the procedure when I was prepping for treatment. Thank you Dr. Murphy!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
