Lisa Kaplin, D.O.


As a former intercollegiate soccer athlete, Dr. Lisa Kaplin has enthusiasm for all things sports- and fitness-related.This passion carries into her practice as a physician and surgeon, where she helps patients get back to competitive sports, recreation and fitness.

Having enjoyed biology and other sciences while an undergrad at Brandeis University, Dr. Kaplin was particularly drawn to the field of medicine by a fascination with the ability of her fellow athletes to both avoid and overcome injury.

Afterward, she went on to earn a master’s in medical science from Boston University followed by a D.O. from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. During the course of her early career Dr. Kaplin covered teams in hockey, rugby, basketball and football. In 2019, she completed a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at Wake Forest University College of Medicine. Currently, she is the team doctor for La Salle University athletics.
Dr. Kaplin’s orthopedic sports medicine services include:

  • arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
  • arthroscopic and open shoulder stabilization / labral repair
  • shoulder replacement
  • arthroscopic ACL reconstruction
  • multiligamentous knee reconstruction
  • knee cartilage restoration
  • patellar stabilization
  • knee osteotomy
  • pediatric and adolescent sports medicine

Dr. Kaplin will tell you that the patient is the priority “all the time.”  She works to create an environment of trust and understanding, so that they feel comfortable and confident as partners in their care.

In her free time Dr. Kaplin enjoys hikes along the Wissahickon with her family—she welcomed a baby daughter in 2018—and trying out Philadelphia’s great restaurants.
