Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Magill joined Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute in 2014. The son of an orthopedic surgeon, he has had a lifetime of learning in the field of orthopedics, and his practice focuses on sports and reconstructive surgery of the shoulders, hips, and knees, including cartilage transplant, general hand and extremity surgery, and the muscle-sparing anterior approach to total hip replacement. Dr. Magill uses the latest techniques, and he was the first surgeon to perform a cartilage transplant in the area. He routinely utilizes the newer, muscle-sparing approach to total hip replacements. He also uses the arthroscope when performing many shoulder surgeries that previously required open incisions.

A Colorado native, Dr. Magill completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado. His roots in the Midwest were later established during his medical school training at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, followed by his general surgery internship and orthopedic surgery residency at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. There, he was fortunate enough to work with the professional sports teams in Chicago, including the Cubs, Bears, and Bulls.   

Dr. Magill spends his free time with his wife and family. He also enjoys photography, skiing, and traveling.  

Dr. Magill is available to see patients at our LaPorte and Michigan City – Coolspring offices.
