New medical staff | Monday, July 11, 2022

Mercyhealth is pleased to welcome David Nilsen, DO, board certified orthopedic surgeon, to the physician staff at Mercyhealth Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center–Janesville.

Dr. Nilsen’s philosophy of care involves forming strong relationships with his patients. “I view caring for patients as a partnership and do all I can to meet each patient’s treatment goals. I also love treating all generations of a family. I’ve had a significant sports medicine practice for many years and greatly enjoy seeing them return to their sport or activity. I equally enjoy treating those patients whose joint(s) have worn out and giving them a new lease on life after treatment is completed.

Dr. Nilsen earned his medical degree at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in East Lansing, MI and served his residency at Millcreek Community Hospital in Erie, PA. He is certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery.

His special interests include:

  • Joint replacement
  • Cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical treatments
  • Sports medicine

To make an appointment with Dr. Nilsen, call Mercyhealth Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center–Janesville at (608) 754-6000.
