Orthopaedic Surgery

Print This Page


The Johns Hopkins orthopaedic practice in the national capital region includes locations in Bethesda, MD and Washington, DC. We provide patients with the best care for musculoskeletal and spinal conditions. Our physicians pride themselves on maximizing nonsurgical treatments before considering or suggesting surgical options.

We work closely with physical therapists, rehabilitation physicians and interventional pain management specialists to ensure that our patients have the best chance at recovering from a spinal or other musculoskeletal condition before surgery is considered.

We also frequently refer patients to neurologists, physiatrists, rheumatologists and other specialists to gain their perspective and provide patients with a multidisciplinary approach to a musculoskeletal condition.

For patients who have exhausted all other options and are found to be candidates for joint replacement or spine surgery, our physicians use the latest technologies to provide the best surgical care possible. We use minimally invasive and image-guided techniques to avoid collateral tissue damage, improve recovery times and avoid complications while maintaining the effectiveness of the surgical techniques that have been developed over the years.
