Dragomir Mijic, DO, is a fellowship-trained shoulder and elbow orthopaedic surgeon with advanced training in shoulder and elbow replacement and arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgery. He treats all types of orthopaedic injuries and degenerative conditions with a special emphasis in shoulder and elbow disorders including arthritis, rotator cuff tears, tendonitis, sports-related injuries, and fractures. Dr. Mijic was born and raised in Serbia. At the age of 15, Dr. Mijic moved from Serbia to Minnesota. Dr. Mijic went on to earn his undergraduate degree from The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota and then his medical degree from Des Moines University in Des Moines, Iowa. Dr. Mijic completed five years of orthopaedic surgery residency training at Michigan State University St. John Health System Hospitals. During residency, he was selected chief resident and earned the recognition of Orthopaedic Surgery Resident of the Year. Dr. Mijic then spent an additional 12 months of sub-specialized training to complete a Shoulder and Elbow fellowship at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Levy. Dr. Mijic has been actively involved in advancing the field of orthopaedic surgery through orthopaedic research and education. He has authored multiple orthopaedic textbook chapters as well as journal articles, and he has presented research at several national meetings. Dr. Mijic lives with his wife in Weeki Wachee and enjoys kayaking.
“My goal is to always provide compassionate, holistic, and patient-centered care of the highest quality. This begins with carefully listening to my patients, paying attention to every detail of their condition, understanding how it affects their lives, and using my best clinical judgement to formulate an effective plan for the fastest recovery possible. When surgery becomes necessary, I use the latest state of the art orthopedic implants and minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible, in order to provide my patients with the most durable surgical option, best environment for healing, and optimal postoperative function.
As many of my patients can attest to, I love teaching and patient education. I am passionate about making sure my patients fully understand their condition and treatment options because orthopaedic surgery is a complex, rapidly advancing field of medicine and treatment options can often be confusing for patients. I always take extra time to make sure my patients clearly understand their diagnosis, available non-surgical and surgical options, the treatment plan, surgical details if surgery is necessary, and the recovery process. In my experience, a patient who is well informed about their condition and treatment plan is a more active participant in the recovery process, ultimately leading to achievement of optimal outcomes.
My mission is to always give 100 percent and to work together with my patients to achieve pain-free function; allowing them to enjoy life, comfortably spend time with family and friends, return to work or recreational pursuits, and even get athletes back to high level sports.”
