Kevin Murray, MD
“Helping patients maintain vitality and participation in sports and recreation throughout life is a particular passion of mine”
 
 

As a lifelong athlete, I am deeply committed to helping people remain active and vital throughout their lives. I derive tremendous satisfaction from seeing individuals regain physical ability lost to injury or physical decline. My practice emphasizes a personalized approach to patient care, combining surgical and sports medicine expertise with a background in radiology and engineering to determine the best care for each individual. I strive to return patients to their full potential as quickly as possible.

Board certified and fellowship-trained with Subspecialty Certification in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, I have served as an attending physician for a wide variety of teams and sporting events at the amateur and professional levels. Currently, I am Team Physician for USA Hockey, West Valley College, San Jose State Ice Hockey, and Los Gatos High School. Past appointments as Attending Physician have included: USA Track and Field, USA Gymnastics, US Golf Association, the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Cirque du Soleil, Cleveland Indians Baseball, and the San Francisco Rush PRO Rugby Team.

I regularly teach arthroscopic and sports medicine concepts and surgical techniques at the internationally renowned Orthopaedic Learning Center, Chicago, IL; serve on curriculum and educational committees for national and international orthopaedic organizations; and review article submissions for Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery. Involvement in these activities over the past decade keeps me at the leading edge of sports medicine while providing a way to give back to my profession. In addition, I remain involved with biomedical device research and development as a consultant for several Silicon Valley companies.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, playing ice hockey, golfing and hiking.

I am currently accepting new patients. Please let me know if there is anything my staff and I can do to improve your experience at OrthoNorCal. I look forward to meeting you.

Reviews
  • Performed knee surgery for my 9th grade son. Dr. Murray was knowledgeable and did a great job! Would go back to him anytime for similar treatment.
  • Nice man. Very knowledgeable and gentle. Consummate knee expert and surgeon.
    Dr. Murray is widely known and highly respected. He trains other surgeons how to operate on knees.
  • Lucky to have Dr. Murray as a treating physician. He is a superstar surgeon with great personality and superb bedside manner. What else can you ask for.
  • Dr. Murray is attentive, kind and patient with his patients. The office staff is quick and professional and I like that they use wireless tablets for patients to fill out their personal info upon checking in. So much better than dealing with a bunch of paperwork and then your info is already filled out electronically upon your subsequent visits!
    I’ve seen Dr. Murray several times to drain a bursitis in my elbow and I leave feeling less pain and discomfort every time. Thanks Dr. Murray!
  • This isn't fair but Dr. Murray is a master of being able to instill confidence and a purity of calm in me. He's been my trusted specialist for more than 20 years. He's my go-to guy. My highest recommendation!
  • Great Doctor and he cares for his patients. I'd recommend to friends and family.
  • Dr. Murray has done an outstanding job with my rotator cuff surgery. Clean work, minimal pain, and each visit is not rushed and he takes the time to check progress. Exceptional!
