Orthopedic Services in Montgomery County

Offering a Wide Range of Orthopedic Services

Maryland Orthopedic Institute provides comprehensive evaluations and treatment for patients who suffer from permanent or progressive damage to their knees or hips. We can also help those who seek sports medicine assistance due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, or other joint disorders. When you visit our office, a board certified orthopedic surgeon who has specific fellowship training in joint replacement surgery evaluates you.

The initial assessment involves a review of medical records and history, a musculoskeletal physical exam, and an acquisition and review of necessary radiological studies. These may include X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. We then customize our treatments to fit our recommendations based on the findings and diagnosis in collaboration with your age, activity level, and medical history.

A few of our specialties include:

  • Knee Replacement : Sometimes due to overuse, damage from arthritis, or just from aging, the knees can become damaged. This can be so painful that even with minor surgery, no relief may be found. You may qualify for knee replacement surgery.
  • Hip Replacement : As the body ages, the hip, which is one of the most used joints of the body, can deteriorate. This can also happen due to an accident or another type of damaging incident. Hip replacement surgery may be right for you if you are in constant pain and discomfort.
  • Sports Medicine : : We work with a wide range of individuals for various sports related injuries, including fractures, sprains. We offer sports injury prevention methods to help keep you in the game and out of the hospital.
  • Bone Fractures : If you have suffered a bone fracture due to various activities or accidents, you are likely in serious pain. We can assist you with the healing process and educate you on how to take care of your current fracture, as well as prevent future injuries.
  • Arthroscopy : In the case of surgery being necessary, some individuals qualify for the less invasive arthroscopic method. This is a technique that utilizes cameras and involves a faster recovery time and less scarring. We can help determine if this is your best option.

We also offer comprehensive treatments for degenerative joint disease of the hip and knee, inflammatory disease of the hip and knee, osteonecrosis of the hip and knee, and post-traumatic degenerative joint disease of the hip and knee. Our team commonly treats hip arthritis and can resolve hip arthritis-related problems via conservative modalities, and when indicated total hip replacement.

Our board certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Farrell, can perform computer assisted total knee and hip replacement and minimally invasive total knee replacement. Regardless of your age, we can help resolve your hip or knee problems. It is our goal to ensure you return to a normal, active lifestyle if you suffer from arthritis or damaged joints through joint replacement surgery when indicated.
