About Dr. Riehl

Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) proudly announces the addition of John T. Riehl, MD, orthopedic trauma surgeon and medical director of Orthopedic Trauma.

Dr. Riehl attended California Lutheran University where he majored in biochemistry and molecular biology and graduated with honors.

He attended medical school at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia.

Dr. Riehl performed his orthopedic surgery residency in rural Pennsylvania at Geisinger Medical Center and completed his Orthopedic Trauma fellowship at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Dr. Riehl is board certified in orthopedic surgery and is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and a member of the Orthopedic Trauma Association.

“In high school I had a tibia fracture. I received excellent orthopedic care. During my recovery I became very interested in orthopedics and decided I wanted to become an orthopedic surgeon,” Dr. Riehl said.

He had several mentors throughout his life that have helped him get to where he is today.

“These mentors taught me many lessons in and out of the operating room. One of the most important lessons I have learned is to treat every patient in the way I would treat my own family member, and that is what I do in every patient encounter,” Dr. Riehl said.

He looks forward to providing quality orthopedic care to the region.

“The goals for my practice revolve around one thing: to deliver excellent care to my patients and the community that I serve,” he said. “Ultimately, I hope to further the research and knowledge of the medical profession to have a positive impact on the way patients and injuries are treated throughout the world.”

Dr. Riehl said his patients can expect to receive advanced orthopedic advice and care at all times.

He said a number of factors attracted him to PMC.

“I came to PMC because I believe that this hospital is committed to providing top tier patient care by empowering physicians to make individualized decisions for and with their patients at all times. I have seen a genuine commitment from PMC, unlike anywhere else in the country in this regard, which I believe has and will continue to make PMC a preeminent medical center in the United States,” Dr. Riehl concluded.

When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Riehl enjoys spending time with his wife and their three children. He enjoys watching sports, exercising and reading and writing orthopedic research.
