He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree and completed his first orthopedic residency at the Central University of Venezuela.
“Since I was in Venezuela, I was interested in the mechanics of the foot,” said Dr. O’Daly. “It’s a growing, constantly evolving specialty with lots of innovation.”
Dr. O’Daly practiced as an orthopedic surgeon in Centro Medico de Caracas, one of the most prestigious clinics in Venezuela, focusing on sports medicine and joint reconstruction.

Dr. O’Daly earned his second residency from Johns Hopkins University after completing a research fellowship on peripheral nerve regeneration.
At Coastal Orthopedics, Dr. O’Daly will treat patients suffering from a variety of foot and ankle issues, including athletic injuries, fractures, dislocations, sprains, heel pain, Achilles tendon problems, arthritis and more.
“At Coastal Orthopedics, the motive is always patient care first,” said Dr. O’Daly. “I love the people at Coastal Orthopedics and the office.”
In the coming months, Dr. O’Daly will continue to be involved in an ongoing research project in conjunction with Johns Hopkins and the University of Alabama at Birmingham focused on ankle joint fracture care.
When he was working toward his fellowship at Johns Hopkins, Dr. O’Daly was honored with the Frank L. Coulson Jr. award for Clinical Excellence for several accomplishments, including communication and interpersonal skills, professionalism and humanism, diagnostic acumen, skillful negotiation of the healthcare system, a scholarly approach to clinical practice and a passion for patient care.
