The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics is redefining the way musculoskeletal care is delivered across the region with locations throughout Maryland, DC, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
An Orthopaedic Surgeon is a medical doctor who specializes in the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. This system includes bones, joints, muscles, and any related painful conditions.
When a physician has completed an orthopaedic residency and/or fellowship training, the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery offers a written test to become board eligible. If the written test is passed, the physician becomes “eligible” to take the oral test, after two years in practice. When the physician passes the oral exam, the physician becomes “board certified” and is considered a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
The intent of the certification process, as defined by the board members of the American Board of Medical Specialties, is to provide assurance to the public that a certified medical specialist has successfully completed an approved educational program and an evaluation, including an examination process designed to assess the knowledge, experience, and skills requisite to the provision of high quality patient care in that specialty.
Physician Assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. Physician Assistants see patients in the office, as well as assist the physician in surgery.
Physical Therapists are licensed by the state, specializing in therapy programs for musculoskeletal injuries and disorders, sports injuries, post-operative rehabilitation and massage therapy.
Our office building has free parking.
The doctor will see you at your scheduled post op appointment and determine if formal physical therapy is needed to improve your recovery, an order for therapy will be given at that time.
