Mark Andrew Cairns, MD, specializes in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. His professional interests include shoulder, knee and hip arthroscopy, shoulder arthroplasty and general trauma.

Collaborative and caring, he builds strong relationships with patients, helps them understand treatment options and works with them to set and reach treatment goals. His experience has taught him that there is often more than one approach, and many injuries can be managed successfully with both operative and nonoperative approaches.

Born and raised in Toronto, he played hockey in college as well as in a minor professional league. Married with 3 children, he enjoys spending time with his family and coaching youth sports. His hobbies include hockey, baseball, golf and University of South Carolina football.

“Medicine always comes back to helping others. It is humbling when patients come to me for help and trust my judgment to help them get better.” – Mark Andrew Cairns, MD
