Background

Duc Nguyen, M.D., is an orthopaedic surgeon with expertise in a variety of hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder conditions affecting children and adults. He specializes in treating patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff injuries and other injuries and diseases of the upper extremities, such as fractures, arthritis and degenerative disease, and sports-related injuries.

Dr. Nguyen believes in partnering with patients to help them understand their conditions and treatment options, so that together they can make an informed decision about the treatment plan. He focuses on evidence-based treatments, including cutting-edge surgical techniques, that help minimize impact on healthy tissues and improve recovery of function and return to activity.  

An assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Nguyen completed his medical degree at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, followed by an orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital and Ryder Trauma Center. He trained as a hand and upper extremity orthopaedic fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center under the mentorship of Mark Baratz and several other renowned faculty members. 

Dr. Nguyen’s research interests include basilar thumb arthritis, wrist dislocations and instability, and wrist and upper extremity fractures. He co-authored multiple publications on these topics and presented his research at national conferences. He is also involved in teaching and improving resident education with contributions to various textbooks.
