Douglas J. Lowery, M.D.

Sports Medicine, Total Joint Replacement

Dr. Lowery, an Indiana native, graduated with honors from the Indiana University School of Medicine and completed his orthopaedic residency in Ohio. He completed advanced fellowship training in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine and Minimally Invasive Surgery in Colorado.

He now enjoys providing the same high level of orthopaedic care to patients in the Evansville area that he did as part of the medical team caring for the Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies. A former college football player who still maintains an active lifestyle, Dr. Lowery understands the importance of successful return to activity for athletes of all levels and ages.

Away from work, Dr. Lowery enjoys participating in outdoor recreational activities with his family.
