Dr. Eifler’s #1 priority is to get his patients back to enjoying their favorite activities.   Whether supporting a collegiate athlete, a “weekend warrior”, or 45 year old software engineer with a new injury, his expertise is customizing a treatment plan for maximum functional recovery.   His experience as the Team Orthopedic Surgeon for Division 1 athletes at the University of North Texas benefits every patient that he sees in the office.

Success for Dr Eifler is looking out for the best interest of the patient, as an athlete today and as an adult in the future.   He understands the expectations of recovery vary depending on the age, occupation and lifestyle of the patient- be it a 40 year-old mechanic or a 75 year-old, retired teacher.

During his time in Texas, Dr Eifler reconstructed the shoulders and knees of high school students that subsequently earned scholarships to play Division 1 football, tennis, basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball, and softball.   He has helped hundreds of collegiate athletes return to their sports after injury.

Dr. Eifler’s reputation allowed him to the opportunity to serve as the Team Physician for teams in the National Indoor Football League and the American West Hockey League.   The coaches, players, and parents have come to trust Dr. Eifler for effective diagnosis and treatment of their orthopedic injuries.


“Dr. Eifler has been our team doctor for nine years.   He has treated my son and wife, the other coaches’ families, teachers and their families.   We trust him because he speaks to our level. He treats everyone like his family; he does what is best for the kids, regardless what the coach wants.   I respect that approach to care.   When I have an injured player, I tell the mom and dad to do whatever Dr. Eifler says.   I am not going to let him play until Dr. Eifler determines it’s safe for him to play.   Dr. Eifler is going to treat your kid like he would his own.’”
– John Walsh, athletic director and head football coach, Guyer High School, Dallas; winner of two state football titles

TOP important and interesting reviews from patients

Dr Eifler took care of me urgently regardless of issues with my insurance, gave me a functional brace for my wrist fracture and enabled me to continue working that very evening (I’m a professional acrobat and my work is essential to my livelihood). Cannot thank him enough and am beyond blessed that I ended up at his office by chance (I somehow had his office number in my phone when I was struggling to find a doctor urgently. Highly recommend, he is exceptionally kind and caring and not like most surgeons : )

I do not have to give it a second thought.

Dr Eifler and his staff get 5 stars! They are professional, kind, caring and very knowledgeable. Dr Eifler and Jordan never seem to be "bothered" when I ask a slew of questions. They take their time and answer every question I have. I always know I will be taken care of in the most professional manner. If you are researching orthopedic physicians look no more! Dr. Eifler and his staff are exactly who you need.

Dr. Eifler is willing to take his time and listen as well as review all possible options. I came in with knee pain and after MRI showed bone on bone on inner knee surface. He covered the options of both surgical on non-surgical. Currently I'm doing Gel shots combined with PRP. I'm only 3 weeks in and have already had imlrovement.

The staff, surgery center, Dr. Eifler and his PA’s/NPs are incredible. This was my second ACL repair and the healing was jsut far better with Dr. Eifler than my previous surgeon. He also sits at your level and explains everything. Made me feel very safe. He got me running again after years of trouble. Thank you

The staff are all friendly and I was happy that Dr Eifler stopped in to see me even though my appointment was with his PA. He took the time to explain everything to me and gave me options for a treatment plan. I would highly recommend him!
