Dr. Mutnal treats orthopaedic and sports-related injuries
Amar Mutnal, MD, is the latest physician to join the Ashtabula County Medical Center team of orthopaedic surgeons. He sees patients full time in Ashtabula, and hosts a special Injury Clinic each Saturday.
Dr. Mutnal specializes in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine, covering a range of services from the latest arthroscopic surgery techniques to joint replacement surgery.
Dr. Mutnal recently completed an orthopaedic surgery residency at Cleveland Clinic and a sports medicine fellowship in Indianapolis. He earned his medical degree from the University of Michigan in 2006. He has also completed a residency program at Case Western Reserve University School and was a research fellow at Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Mutnal has served as team physician for several Cleveland-area high school teams and has worked with various youth and collegiate orchestras.
“Dr. Mutnal is a welcome addition to our orthopaedic Sports Medicine team,” said ACMC Healthcare System President and CEO Michael Habowski. “His experience will provide him insight into the health risks our athletes face, and his orthopaedic surgical training will expand services available in Ashtabula County.”
Treating athletes is nothing new for ACMC physicians. Cleveland Clinic Orthopaedic Surgeon Mark Verdun, DO, and ACMC Orthopaedic Surgeon John Posch, MD, have treated athletes as well as patients suffering from other orthopaedic issues related to knees, hips, shoulders, neck, wrists, joints and ligaments, and more. This year, they are also joined by Sports Medicine physician Nathanial Franley, MD.
Dr. Mutnal serves as surgical director for the ACMC Sports Medicine services, which also features Dr. Verdun, Dr. Franley, Physician Assistant Rebecca Loomis, and five athletic trainers.
The goal of the department is to enable you to enjoy a lifetime of healthy activity.
“Our Sports Medicine team has the expertise to get an athlete back in the game,” Habowski said. “Our physicians are fellowship-trained in sports medicine and are also trained to treat any orthopaedic injuries. The entire team will educate and train athletes to prevent injuries and improve performance.”
The Injury Clinics began last month, and are open to anyone with a sports injury—student or adult—at The Ashtabula Clinic.
Anyone can come to ACMC to be seen by one of our fellowship-trained, sports medicine physicians. Dr. Franley and Dr. Mutnal are available to see patients on a walk-in basis from 8 to 10 a.m. No appointment is necessary.
A person should come to the Injury Clinic if they experience any of the following symptoms after sustaining an injury:
- Joint swelling
- Inability to put weight on injured area
- Loss of range of motion due to injury
- Continual pain
