Daniel Southern, M.D.

Daniel Southern, M.D. is a Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Specialist dedicated to helping people minimize or eliminate acute and chronic discomfort and pain through Regenerative Medicine treatments. Dr. Southern is fellowship trained in Spine and Sports Medicine at the Hospital for Special Surgery and earned his Medical Degree from the SUNY Downstate Medical Center. 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 interventional orthopedic injections that use bone marrow stem cells, platelet rich blood plasma, and alpha-2 macroglobulin (A2M) in disc regenerative therapy and joint regenerative therapy for common work or sports injuries, or just “wear and tear that result in acute or chronic pain. 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 the painful rehabilitation and long period of restricted activity that comes with surgery. Dr. Southern often finds that Regenerative Orthopedic treatment may also be appropriate for patients who might have other medical conditions that make the risks and complications of invasive surgery less attractive. 

Dr. Southern is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as well as Pain Medicine and Sports Medicine.
