Jonathan M. Cooper, DO
What is an interesting fact that people may not know about you?
I’m an orthopedic surgeon in a family of dentists! I enjoy spending time with my family, being out on the lake, and I’ve run in 42 of the 50 states.
Why did you go into medicine?
I told my dad when I was eight years old that I would be a doctor if I didn’t play in the NFL. At 98 pounds as a freshman in high school, I figured I needed to find out what it took to get into medical school.
How did you choose orthopedics?
I entered medical school with a desire to pursue orthopedics after tearing my patella tendon high jumping and being fascinated with athletic injuries and the musculoskeletal system.
What is your care philosophy?
My care philosophy centers around the patient and their individual goals. My team and I work with the patient to harness the body’s natural healing potential and determine an appropriate treatment plan for their care. We invest our time and energy in seeing the impact of the treatment from the perspective of the patient and strive to keep them performing the activities they enjoy.
