Meet Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Specialist Daniel Southern, M.D.

What Does a Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Specialist Physician Do?
“As a Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Specialist Physician I am dedicated to helping people minimize or eliminate acute and chronic pain and restore function through Regenerative Medicine treatments. For those involved in sports or physically active recreational activities including hiking, we are able to help with quick recoveries from common sprains and strains along with the more overuse related degenerative types of injury. My goal is to stimulate and support the natural healing process contained within the human body in order to actually heal, repair or even “grow back” the damaged tissue, rather than simply treating the symptoms.”

Meet Daniel Southern, M.D.
Dr. Southern is Fellowship trained in Spine and Sports Medicine at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. He earned his Medical Degree from the SUNY Downstate Medical Center and completed a Residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at New York Presbyterian Medical Center in NYC.  Dr. Southern is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as well as Pain Medicine and Sports Medicine.  

As a Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Physician as well as an avid athlete and former professional dancer, he has a keen sense of the physical demands and effects that pain compromised movement can have on sports performance as well as every day mobility and daily lifestyles.

Dr. Southern specializes in Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine treatments that include many non-surgical options. These include injection therapy with stem cells, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and alpha-2 macroglobulin (A2M), along with disc regenerative therapy and joint regenerative therapy for common work or sports injuries and degenerative joint problems such as osteoarthritis. In many instances, with regenerative orthopedic treatments, Dr. Southern can provide an alternative for patients considering invasive surgery or joint replacement who hope to avoid long recovery periods with limited or restricted activity and the painful rehabilitation process that comes with invasive surgery.  Regenerative Orthopedic treatment options may also be appropriate for patients who might have other medical conditions that make the risks and complications of invasive surgery less attractive.

“The power to heal is contained within the human body.  Regenerative Orthopedics taps into this power to heal and brings it to bear on injured areas of the body with the goal of restoring strong native tissues without surgery.”
