Surgical Treatment of Shoulder, Elbow, Hip, & Knee, Total Joint Replacement of the Hip & Knee

“In practicing as a fellowship-trained sports medicine surgeon, I’ve devoted myself to helping restore form and function after injury for athletes and active people from all walks of life. My approach to treatment is patient-centered and compassionate care with shared decision-making between patient and surgeon while providing patients with the most recent and leading-edge evidence-based medicine currently available.

I enjoy relationship-building with my patients and providing them with both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options to return them to the activities they love and enjoy. I also enjoy the responsibility of being a physician both inside and outside of the hospital and helping those in that capacity wherever and whenever I can.”

Patient Testimonials

Slocum is like a well-oiled machine. Everyone and everything knows its place and purpose. At a glance, this could seem cold and indifferent. However, the experience is anything but. Each person I interacted with was kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. And I appreciated meeting with Dr. Dowdle who took just enough time with me to explain my situation.

Dr. Dowdle is very nice and considerate. He was recommended to me.

Really pleased with Dr. Dowdle, I will definitely go back if I need to.

I am happy with Dr. Dowdle. Very thorough and respectful. I will hold my remarks about my upcoming procedure this Friday until then.

Dr. Dowdle is very kind and personable. He makes you feel very comfortable, and I was very nervous at my first appointment.
