Dr. John Horan is the newest physician to join the orthopedic team at Community Health Network.
The Harley-driving, Wisconsin sports fan grew up near the Holy Hill area, just northwest of Milwaukee. After holding a private practice for 12 years in New Braunfels, Texas, Dr. Horan returned to his Wisconsin roots and joined Affinity Medical Group in Oshkosh.
While working at Affinity, Dr. Horan did locum tenens (fill-in work) for 11 months at Berlin Memorial Hospital. On October 2, Dr. Horan was welcomed to Berlin as a full-time physician.
“The administration was helpful and friendly and patient care was excellent,” says Horan. “It was a great environment; I didn’t want to leave.”
Dr. Horan treats immediate or chronic problems for patients of all ages. Something unique about his practice, said Horan, is that he performs procedures characteristic of more specialized orthopedics; such as total ankle replacements or replacing small bones in the hands and feet. His specialties include sports medicine, total joint replacement and general orthopedics.
In his free time, Dr. Horan is an avid motorcycle rider and has even traveled to Europe with his Harley. He enjoys boating, swimming, hunting as well as cheering on the Packers, Brewers and, his alma mater, Marquette basketball team.
When Horan was asked what he loves about orthopedic medicine, he replies, “It’s all about the patients. In surgeries such as these, you see them recover and their quality of life improve remarkably,” he explains. “They feel the results, and you know you’ve made a difference.”
Dr. Horan graduated from Marquette University, received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, and completed his orthopedics residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas.
