Martha Murray | Professional History

Dr. Murray is internationally recognized as an expert in the care of sports injuries of the knee, including injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus. She has won multiple national awards for her work advancing the care of patients with these injuries, including the Kappa Delta and Cabaud Memorial Awards, respectively the highest research awards in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.

She is currently working with the National Football League Players Association and the National Institutes of Health to develop a novel technique of ACL surgery: bridge-enhanced ACL repair, which uses a scaffold to help the ACL heal and avoids the need for taking a graft to replace the ACL.

Dr. Murray has over 70 publications in the area of ACL and meniscus surgery. She has specialized in the care of patients with knee injuries, including ACL, meniscus and osteochondritis dissecans lesions, for the past 15 years.

Providing excellent care of a physical injury, whether surgical or non-surgical, is the primary goal of my practice. However, I also feel it is important for physicians to recognize there are often other issues that may accompany the injury — whether they be social, emotional or intellectual. I feel that understanding the athlete and their entire response to injury is important in obtaining an excellent result after treatment. I also strongly encourage the team approach of working with the athlete, their families and other care providers, including physical therapists and certified athletic trainers, as I think this is the most reliable way to obtain consistently good results for my patients.
