Greetings and welcome to the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Our team is committed to providing quality, compassionate care for patients and their families, advancing research in the field of orthopaedic surgery and educating the next generation of health experts.

As we accelerate into our second century of service, we are experiencing growth in every clinical division as well as on our research team. We continue to provide innovative education models for medical students, residents and fellows.
