Biography

Dr. Douglass Stull knew from the time he was in sixth grade that being a physician was his calling.

“I had a science class and the teacher had to go on emergency leave. The substitute really only new anatomy & physiology, so we were taught some basics and I completely fell in love. I knew right then that I wanted to be a physician.”

Dr. Stull earned his medical degree from the University of Texas School of Medicine and completed his fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with special interests in all aspects of shoulder and elbow care, including sports injuries, trauma, joint replacement and joint reconstruction.

Dr. Stull was also on the U.S. national team in Modern Pentathlon, competing at the Olympic level, and continues to be involved with the pentathlon by serving on their international medical committee. He also provides collegiate sports medicine coverage to Division I athletes as a team physician for the University of Kansas.

What advice does he have for his patients?

“Get out there and move. Think about what you can do, not what you can’t when you face an injury or disability.”

Philosophy Of Care

Listen to the patient. They'll tell you everything you need to know about them - what's wrong with them, how they got there, why they're there. I always want my patients involved in their own care. I like to educate patients and let them make their own decision based on those recommendations, so they're a partner in their own care.

Dr. Stull has the rare ability to listen carefully to at a patient says. When the conversation gets too rambling or the patient starts to repeat themselves, he is able to gently redirect it back to the issue at hand without seeming impatient or not caring.
