Please join us in congratulating Dr. Stanley on a remarkable career. He was the first sports medicine fellowship-trained physician in Oklahoma and has mentored many physicians in this growing field over the years.
Dr. Stanley is originally from Sperry, Oklahoma and attended Oral Roberts University for his undergraduate degree. He earned his MD at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He earned his fellowship in sports medicine from The Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.
Over the years, Dr. Stanley has served the community in a number of roles, including team physician for The University of Tulsa, Oral Roberts University, the Tulsa Drillers, Union High School, Tulsa Ballet, and the Tulsa Shock. Additionally, he has appeared as a regular on the local “Ask the Doc” radio program for 18 years. He previously served as co-director of the sports medicine fellowship program at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He was also the team physician for football teams that played in the Soviet Union, Estonia, New Zealand and Australia.
“To everything, there is a time and a season. This is the time and season for me to transition into my next phase of life. My calling and mission are the same – to continue to help people in need, but in a different way,” Dr. Stanley says.
Tulsa Bone & Joint will greatly miss Dr. Stanley and is immensely grateful for his numerous contributions.
