Daniel P. McMahon, MD, FACS

Assistant Professor of Surgery, Navy Veteran, Author



I am a practicing academic surgeon and perform a wide variety of open, laparoscopic, robotic, and endoscopic procedures. I have an interest in, and experience with, austere and expeditionary medicine and surgery. I spent 12 years on active duty service in the U.S. Navy with a broad range of leadership, operational, and deployment experiences. These include, flight surgery and aerospace medicine, surface naval operations, subsurface naval operations, special operations support, and various other deployments overseas. I have experience navigating the logistics and administrative challenges associated with enabling medical and surgical capabilities overseas and in austere environments. I have an interest in teaching through medical education and am interested in medical device innovation as well as medical device research and development. Additionally, I am interested in optimizing operating room efficiency, flow, and logistics without compromising the quality of care and patient safety. I also have experience with medical and healthcare writing through two book publications. I would like to leverage my clinical, military, and academic experience into a career involving medical and healthcare consulting. I enjoy traveling, the outdoors, and reading. I’m a life-long learner and am always looking for a new adventure.
