I am a fellowship-trained primary care sports medicine physician who ensures the very best in health and medical care for athletes.  I am experienced and trained in the prevention and care of musculoskeletal issues and other health problems linked to sports injuries.  I am a strong proponent of holistic care for athletes including healthy eating and daily exercise.  I provide patients with an individualized treatment plan and personalized goals for faster recovery and safe return to play.

I am a board-certified family medicine and primary care sports medicine physician. I attended the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine and completed my family medicine residency at Lehigh Valley Hospital and his fellowship in primary care sports medicine at St. Luke’s.

I joined St. Luke’s University Health Network in 2019. I am a member of American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. I provide non-surgical treatment of sports injuries and illnesses including fracture care, concussion management, overuse and acute injuries and everyday musculoskeletal ailments for people of all ages.

My love of sports medicine stems from being a former professional triathlete and understanding how important it is to get back to the activities that we love. I feel that keeping active at any age is important physically as well as mentally. I am passionate about helping athletes and non-athletes with their musculoskeletal injuries.



Team Orthopedic Surgery Physician:
Dr. Alexander Johnson, MD
Doc Johnson

One of my favorite parts of being a physician is developing relationships with new people and helping them maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. I am committed to spending time with each patient, listening to their goals and concerns, and working together to develop a personalized treatment plan. I enjoy using surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat all common activity related injuries and have particular interest in ailments of the knee and shoulder including ACL or other ligament tears, cartilage and meniscus injuries, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, shoulder and patellar instability, arthritis, and fractures of the clavicle and proximal humerus.

I completed a fellowship in sports medicine and shoulder surgery at the University of Colorado where I treated extreme sports athletes, laborers, and endurance athletes of all ages. I worked as a team physician for the University of Colorado Buffaloes football and basketball teams, as well as the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, and Colorado Rapids professional teams. Prior to fellowship I completed orthopedic surgery residency at Temple University Hospital, medical school at Drexel University, and college at Randolph Macon College where I played football. Today I maintain membership in multiple professional societies including the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

I grew up in Montgomery County and currently live in Allentown. Outside of medicine I enjoy cycling, hiking, camping, and traveling with my wife, new baby boy, and dog.
