Led by two board-certified specialists, Dr. Daniel Murphy and Dr. Arnold Ramirez, our practice can be your first choice for comprehensive sports medicine services.
In collaboration with a team of in-house physical therapists and specially trained nurses, Dr. Murphy and Dr. Ramirez provide diagnostics, treatment, and ongoing care for the following sports injuries:
- ACL tears, MCL tears, and other knee injuries
- Rotator cuff tears, labral tears, and other shoulder injuries

- Tennis elbow
- Shin splints

- And other conditions
Our physicians take a conservative approach to sports medicine that focuses on restoring strength and range of motion without surgery. They do this by offering the latest advances in sports physical therapy, along with platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, viscosupplementation, and other regenerative medicines. In the event that surgery presents the best chance for a full recovery, however, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Murphy utilizes progressive surgical techniques and arthroscopic medicine to reduce incision lengths and shorten recovery periods.
Furthermore, Dr. Murphy and Dr. Ramirez are trusted to care for some of the finest athletes in the St. Petersburg, FL, area. Dr. Murphy is a team physician for the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Dr. Ramirez is the Head Team Physicians for the Buccaneers.
