As a former intercollegiate soccer athlete, Dr. Lisa Kaplin has enthusiasm for all things sports- and fitness-related. This passion carries into her practice as a physician and surgeon, where she helps patients get back to competitive sports, recreation and fitness.
Having enjoyed biology and other sciences while an undergrad at Brandeis University, Dr. Kaplin was particularly drawn to the field of medicine by a fascination with the ability of her fellow athletes to both avoid and overcome injury.
Afterward, she went on to earn a master’s in medical science from Boston University followed by a D.O. from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. During the course of her early career Dr. Kaplin covered teams in hockey, rugby, basketball and football. In 2019, she completed a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at Wake Forest University College of Medicine.
She was previously the Team Physician for LaSalle University Athetics from 2019-2022. She is currently the Team Physician for Salem Community College.
Dr. Kaplin will tell you that the patient is the priority “all the time.” She works to create an environment of trust and understanding, so that they feel comfortable and confident as partners in their care.
In her free time she enjoys exercising and spending time with her family. She is married and has two children; a 5 year old daughter and a 3 year old son.
