Daren Newfield MD is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon with dual fellowships in Sports Medicine and Foot/Ankle Surgery. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons. He has over 15 years of extensive experience in Atlanta covering Level 1 Emergency Trauma Call and in teaching resident surgeons to become competent physicians. He is currently serving as Vice Chairman of Orthopedics at Atlanta Medical Center and is former Department Chairman of Orthopedics at Northside Hospital.

After completing his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at Florida Atlantic University in 1989. He attended Emory University School of Medicine and graduated in 1994. Like his father and both older brother’s before him, Dr. Newfield pursued a career in Orthopedics. He completed his Orthopedic Surgery Residency at Georgia Baptist Medical Center in 1999. He participated in two separate fellowships: Sports Medicine at Alabama Sports Medicine Institute in Birmingham under Larry Lemak MD in 2000 and Foot/Ankle Surgery with the world-renowned surgeon Roger Mann MD in Oakland California in 2001.

After all his training was completed, Dr. Newfield returned home to Florida to practice with his father in the family business of Orthopedic Surgery. Treating patients and doing surgery with his father fulfilled a life goal and made all the years of training seem worth it. Upon his dad’s retirement, Dr. Newfield moved back to Atlanta to enter private practice.

In 1998, while in residency Dr. Newfield traveled to El Salvador to perform spine and extremity surgery on underprivileged children with deformities. In 2010 Dr. Newfield volunteered his time to travel on a medical mission trip to Les Cayes, Haiti after the Earthquake. There he saved many lives and limbs, but the poverty and devastation left a lasting impression on him.

Daren Newfield MD has always had an extreme love of animals, even volunteering, and fostering many dogs through Angels Among Us. In 2004 when an abandoned puppy with a broken femur showed up on his doorstep, Dr. Newfield performed the surgery to repair the dog’s leg and adopted him as well. Tripod now follows Dr. Newfield everywhere. His other dog is named “Puppy” that he adopted from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. His family has recently grown to include a fabulous, beautiful, nurturing wife and a genius one-year-old daughter waiting for him to get home at the end of the day. Dr. Newfield and his amazing wife enjoy riding skateboards together around West Midtown where they live on an old farm with the dogs, goats, chickens, fish, llamas and a donkey.

Even after 15 years of working surgical experience he still enjoys "fixing broken things" as he calls it, with a smile. He treats his patients with the utmost care and a tough love approach that has earned him much respect from all of his patients and their families.
