Dr. Mark Woolf was born in Fort Worth, Texas and raised in Arlington. He attended the University of Texas at Arlington, and earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in 1980. He received his training through the Orthopedic Residency Program at John Peter Smith Hospital. He is currently board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons, since 1987.

Dr. Woolf has been in orthopedic practice since 1985, and was a founding member of Arlington Orthopedic Associates. In addition, he was a founding member of the Baylor Orthopedic and Spine Hospital at Arlington (BOSHA), opened in 2010. He was appointed and remains the Director of the Total Joint Replacement Program. BOSHA has been recognized by the Joint Commission, and was awarded the Gold Seal of Approval for Hip and Knee Replacement Programs, by demonstrating compliance with the Joint Commission’s national standards for quality health care.

Dr. Woolf is passionately involved in medical mission work both locally and abroad. He offers charity service locally for patients who qualify. He participates in mission work through Faith in Practice. This is a faith-based medical mission team that travels to Guatemala numerous times each year to perform surgeries on underprivileged patients. He has participated in this organization for the past ten years, and currently travels there three times each year. He was named Mission Coordinator from 2011 to present. Since 2013, he has served on Board of Directors for Faith in Practice.

Dr. Woolf’s orthopedic practice has evolved over the years, from a general orthopedic practice to a practice centered on total joint arthroplasty. His current practice interests include primary total knee and total hip replacements, and revision total knee and hip replacements. He is passionate about pre-operative patient optimization, especially in regard to obesity and diabetes, and how these diseases affect the stress to the knee and hip joints. Osteoarthritis is the mainstay of his practice and he works diligently to reduce surgical risks and improve outcomes of total hip and knee arthroplasty. His current interests are directed toward short-stay total hip and knee replacement, preemptive operative pain control, and operative risk optimization.

Dr. Woolf has been married for 30 years. He is the proud father of two grown sons and two grandsons. His personal interests include Christian apologetics, golf, and country music.
