Dr. Copeland's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Copeland "Dr. Marilyn Copeland's training began at Southern Methodist University in her home town of Dallas where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Psychology. She received her Doctor of Medicine from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, where she received the Joseph B. Kass Award for Research from a study in a rural Mexican village. After obtaining her MD, Dr. Copeland completed her 5 year orthopedic residency at The University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. She served several school athletic departments, including the nationally ranked Mizzou Tiger football program. From there she completed an additional Fellowship of Sports Medicine at Wake Forest University. During this year, while serving at the University Hospital, she also traveled as team doctor for the Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball team at WFU and in the same academic year worked as team doctor for Winston-Salem State University's football program. Diverse studies have allowed Dr. Copeland to train and operate with the guidance of several globally recognized sports orthopedic teachers including: James Stannard, MD, Pat Smith, MD, David Martin, MD, Gary Poehling, MD, & Allston Julius Stubbs IV, MD. These instructors have prepared Dr. Copeland with focus on knee, hip, and shoulder arthroscopic and reconstruction surgery, cartilage transplant, and multilligament knee reconstruction. The advanced and progressive training of these Doctors has prepared Dr. Copeland with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Traveling to Guatemala, Dr. Copeland has been able to help those in extreme poverty on multiple surgical mission trips with Houston based non-profit, Faith in Practice. Outside of work, Marilyn enjoys a good book on a sunny porch, a long hike on a new trail with her rescue dog, Charli, or training for her next endurance race. She and her family are glad to call the Gulf Coast home."

My son went to see Dr. Copeland with a broken finger. She was super helpful and spent time explaining what we needed to do and answering his many questions. She was easy to talk to and helped us understand her directions and why they mattered. We will go to her every time in the future!
