Dale Funk MD

Dale A. Funk, M.D.

Orthopedic Surgery

“I understand athletes because I have been around sports my entire life. I understand the 10-year-old that is frustrated with a broken leg, the high school senior with a season-ending knee injury, and a 45-year-old that is struggling training for a marathon. I understand why they love playing their sport … why they want to get back onto the playing field … and why an early return is important for their psyche. It is my pleasure, my blessing, and my passion to be able to take care of athletes of all ages in all sports.”
