Board Certificated Orthopedic Surgeons

OrthoBethesda doctors are specially trained and board-certified, which means they’ve demonstrated their lifelong commitment to the field of orthopedic surgery and their area of specialization. They’ve completed tough, detailed exams and mastered their specialties. This depth of knowledge enables them to offer treatment with a very high success rate without any major postoperative complications. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons follow strict medical ethics and practice medicine with a high sense of professionalism that’s focused on high-quality patient care.

Our doctors also maintain their board certification through continued education, and they return for regular evaluation of the latest medical advancements and evolving best practices. This process allows them to offer the best results for patients, as has been proven by experience and the large number of positive patient reviews we have.

Great Bedside Manner

At OrthoBethesda, our doctors know that having a good bedside manner can create a measurable improvement in a patient’s surgical outcome. We know that a smile on the face and a warm and compassionate attitude helps our patients speak out about their symptoms and share all the details about what they’re going through. We take time to build a strong rapport with our patients and create trust.

Patient-Friendly Communication Style

All our doctors have developed their communication skills to a high level of competence. They interact with patients effectively by being active listeners with receptive body language.

When we speak to our patients, we’re conscious of the fact that they’re not familiar with many technical medical terms. We’ll relay information about your body and health in a way that you can easily understand.

We’ll also speak honestly and professionally and discuss your medical condition and treatment plan in a language you understand. We’ll take the time to know you, and we’ll thoroughly consider your treatment preferences. We’ll also respect your contribution while making decisions about your treatment plan.

Good First Impression

We know that we only have a single opportunity to make a great first impression on our patients, so we make it a good and memorable one. From the first minute you step into our consulting room, you’ll enjoy our warm and receptive approach. We’re very courteous, and we show respect to all patients and the friends and family members that accompany them to the hospital.

We’ll take time to listen carefully to all you have to say when you come in for a consultation or treatment. We’ll discuss the situation with you and gather your medical history, learning all we can about your family, sports, job, and any other important areas of interest.
