Dr. Mark C. Gillespy

Specialties and Areas of Focus

As a board certified orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Gillespy commonly is consulted for many musculoskeletal conditions including fractures, muscle, ligament and joint injuries, and nerve entrapments. Within the group and within the community, he specializes in spinal, hip, and knee surgeries. He performs cervical, thoracic, and low back spinal operations using minimally invasive techniques. In addition, he performs arthroscopic surgery of the knee, minimally invasive partial and full knee replacements, and minimally invasive total hip replacements. He has developed and perfected less invasive approaches to management of spinal disc conditions, spinal fractures and spinal fusion surgeries. Improved patient outcome generates his philosophy that these approaches have become the standard of care in our community.

Dr. Mark Gillespy completed his orthopaedic training at Shands Hospital, at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
