Thomas J. Mulvey, M.D.


In replacing your hip or knee joint, Dr. Thomas Mulvey turns to the latest techniques to create the ideal fit. Through standard procedures as well as the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgical System, Dr. Mulvey can devise a care plan that’s suited to your health needs.

The minimally invasive, robotic-arm assisted option is particularly useful thanks to its guidance system, with 3D mapping technology and built-in safeguards that add precision to the procedure. As the first orthopaedic surgeon in the region to employ this technology, Dr. Mulvey has a personal connection to the Mako system.

As for his connection to Midwest Orthopaedic Center, Dr. Mulvey made this practice his professional home because of the opportunities it offered in the field of joint repair. Throughout his time here, Dr. Mulvey’s actively adapted to all of the exciting changes that have come his way –– in Central Illinois and in the field of orthopaedics.

He also remains active in his personal life, golfing regularly with his wife and going on memorable trips –– like hiking Machu Picchu with his son. It’s this ability, to not only evolve professionally but to seek out new opportunities for growth, that makes Dr. Mulvey a practical and efficient match for your health needs.

Meet Our Patients

I had a TKR on June 1. Midwest doctors, therapists, and staff were knowledgeable, kind, and responsive during my 3 months of therapy and before/during surgery. Dr. Mulvey and Andrew listened to me respectfully, answered all my questions, and did a wonderful job. My therapists Nicole and Linda were concerned about my pain levels and pushed my rehabilitation to the right extent. The receptionists were efficient, especially those in therapy. I am very pleased with the care I received from everyone.
