Orthopaedic and Spine Surgery in the Washington, D.C., Metro Area
Johns Hopkins orthopaedic specialists in Bethesda and Washington, D.C., bring the quality of care you expect from Johns Hopkins to the national capital region. We provide patients with the best care for musculoskeletal and spinal conditions, including sports injuries, disc herniations, hip and knee problems, and much more.
Our physicians pride themselves on maximizing nonsurgical treatments before considering or suggesting surgery. And if you have exhausted all other options, you can rely on our surgeons who use the latest technologies and techniques to provide the best surgical care possible.
Why Choose Johns Hopkins Orthopaedics
- We work closely with physical therapists, rehabilitation physicians and interventional pain management specialists to ensure you have the best chance of recovery before surgery is considered.
- We also frequently refer patients to neurologists, physiatrists, rheumatologists and other specialists to gain their perspective and offer a multidisciplinary approach to treatment.
- If surgery is needed, we use minimally invasive and image-guided techniques to avoid collateral tissue damage, improve recovery times and reduce complications.
- To ensure that your referring physician remains aware of your progress, we promptly send letters, consultation notes and copies of all follow-up notes — on the day of your visit — so that we can continue to coordinate care.
