HOPKINS SHOULDER SPECIALIST EDWARD G. MCFARLAND PROMOTED TO PROFESSOR
Edward G. McFarland, M.D., vice chairman of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and director of adult orthopedics in the Division of Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery, was recently promoted to full professor at The John Hopkins University School of Medicine.
“Dr. McFarland epitomizes the triple-threat Hopkins professor: a superb clinician, a devoted and accomplished teacher and an internationally recognized investigator in his field,” said Frank J. Frassica, M.D., Robert A. Robinson Professor and chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
McFarland, who came to Hopkins in 1992 from the University of Florida, is a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder joint disorders and injuries including arthritis, rotator cuff injuries and shoulder pain among athletes.
McFarland earned his medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 1982 and completed his residency and training in orthopedic surgery at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, Minn. in 1987. He joined Johns Hopkins in 1992, where he created and directed The Johns Hopkins Division of Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery before taking on responsibilities in 2002 as director of the Division of Adult Orthopedics.
Recently, McFarland, a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and of the American College of Sports Medicine, and consulting orthopedic surgeon for the Baltimore Orioles, published “Examination of the Shoulder: The Complete Guide.”
