I’m 5 weeks post surgery from back L4/5 fusion. Recovering well. It will still be… awhile to recover completely from the surgery.

I was recommended by a friend who is a PA to Towson Orthopaedic. The staff… at the Bellona office are all incredibly friendly and welcoming. I had a persisting issue with my finger that Dr. Langhammer was able to identify as trigger finger. I loved that she wasn’t pushy with a cortisone shot or surgery. Gave me a cast to wear and didn’t end up helping after a month, I got the cortisone shot. I hyped myself up from watching youtube videos but the shot was nearly painless, similar to a regular shot. She is thorough in her explanations and is well educated in her line of work. 5 stars all around! Read more “5 Stars All Around!”
After several years of managing knee pain and weakness I decided with Dr. Clough’s advise… to have a total left knee replacement. I will say that I could not be happier with that decision.

I was stuck in a jam this past winter, I was admitted to the Naval… Academy, but I needed a medical waiver for my shoulder. I previously had 3 dislocations, an orthoscopic surgery, 4 more dislocations and I needed another surgery to finally fix it.

I had my first knee replacement in February and was scared of the pain and… recovery process. Following his pain regime I had a pain free experience. Since the first one went so well I decided to do the other knee in June. Again I followed his regimen and followed through with PT and had a very successful second surgery.

Had Achilles tendon surgery for a full rupture.

Brian Mulliken helped perform my first knee replacement with Dr. PD Jones who at that… time was retiring so it was luck of the draw and I don’t think I have ever been luckier. Brian has replaced my left knee since that time along with my right knee and my right hip. My right hip was just removed due to metal on metal problem but it was in me for 15 years. Brian has done a wonderful job for me I am just over 6ft and weight 300 lbs. So needless to say my body parts take a beating and I am active in my yard and still have a job 40 hours a week.

This is my second surgical experience with Dr. Scott Tarantino and Ben Gardner, PA. This… group performed my first TKR in January 2016, and my second TKR was recently done on [date] at St Joseph’s Hospital. Although, I’m still moving slowly, and have about 3 months of Physical Therapy for strengthening and ranging my new knee, my pain is so much less than before surgery. They cleaned out all of the bone on bone fragments, cartilage, and jagged fragments prior to installing my new knee. I could tell immediately that all of that “junk” was gone as soon as I walked with my implant on [date].
Couldn’t be more pleased with the care received by my outstanding surgical group! Thank you so much Dr. Tarantino and Ben Gardner💕 Read more “Outstanding Surgical Group”

Dr Clough: I’m sorry this letter is late, but I must thank you for taking… such good care of me when you fixed my broken ankle last year! Thank you for being thorough in answering my questions and for making sure I understood everything. I really appreciate your professionalism before, during and after my ankle operation. I liked how you introduced me to your team in the operating room. That made me feel like a human being instead of a nameless patient. Perhaps you remember my determination when I told you much I value my legs, and I would do “everything in my power” to heal fast. I kept to my word. I did my own (aggressive) therapy using best practices. My recovery was remarkably fast. You mended my ankle in March of 2012. By the 2nd week of May I was walking without a cane or crutches, and by July, I was jogging; just 4 months after the operation. Now, it’s been over a year, and it’s easy to forget what sad shape my left leg was in before I put it in your hands. Thanks for everything doc! ~With much appreciation, David S.

Kellie: I wanted to take a minute to let you know about the wonderful presentation… that Dr. Clough gave to the Catholic Ladies Service Organization and the Bel Air Knights of Columbus last night. To say it was a success is an understatement. The doctor was very personable, informative and welcoming of questions from all in attendances and there was lots of them. The power point presentation was at a level that everyone was able to understand without all of the $10 words normally used by doctors explaining a problem. The doctor remained at the council fielding additional questions after the presentation further endearing him to his audience including my husband, who has finally decided to make an appointment with him. I as well as the organization thank both Dr. Clough for the presentation and you for setting this informative educational presentation up for our group I look forward to working with you in the future for additional presentations. I currently am awaiting the available dates for the council’s social monthly meetings to set up yet another informative presentation.

Dr. Michael Marion: I last visited your office in May 2017. I complained about a… swelling above my left elbow. You took an X-ray and discussed treatment options with me. We decided only to withdraw the fluid generating that unsightly bulge. Since then, my elbow has behaved responsibly and I have not endured more taunts from children to “get it fixed.” Thanks for your treatment.

Dr. Marion: Ten years ago to the day you performed an operation on my shattered… right wrist. The full use of my right hand was paramount to my professional and personal life. You treated me like a human being, not a number and explained what you chose to do and why, which I highly appreciated. You also did an excellent job pre and post surgery. Your assurances and candid bedside manner helped me get through the ordeal of my first major surgery. I should have thanked you sooner, better late then never! I have referred a lot of people to you, one of which you said didn’t need surgery, proof that you value the patient over bottom line.

You operated on my fractured (3 pieces) patella (right knee) in 2015. My last visit… with you was May of 2015 but I continued an aggressive home PT program. I thought you would appreciate hearing about my jogging results. Before my injury I would jog 2 miles, 1-2 times a week. Before the surgery you told me I would be able to ride a bike but you could not say whether I would be able to jog. I have worked very hard to get my knee to where it is today. When I jog I have good mobility and pain free. I always stretch after jogging and usually experience a little tightness and minor pain. This condition dissipated very quickly if I walk some. The next morning both knees are fine. I know that without your knowledge and operating skills I would not have been able to achieve these results… Thanks!! Read more “Thank You!”
I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee performed by Dr. E Craig Matthews at St… Joseph’s. The entire experience, from the initial visit to waking up was fantastic. Everyone at the office was great to work with. I would like to thank Amanda, who coordinated everything and was quick to answer any questions I had. He spoke to me prior to surgery and was very reassuring and told me that he would take good care of me as he parted. Finally I’d like to thank Dr. Matthews for his expert diagnosis and skill in the operating room. I appreciate his work and his post op explanations on my rehab and what I can expect and when. Knee feels great. As a side note, I had ACL reconstructive surgery of the other knee, 32 years ago also at St Joseph’s. It went very well too, so it’s nice to see St Joseph’s has continued their excellent care for all these years. Thank you to all involved. Read more “Knee Feels Great!”

Dear Dr. Dalury: It has been almost 6 months since my second knee replacement. Last… week I hiked in Thurmont in Cunningham State Park. We did not choose the most vigorous of hikes, but they certainly were not the most wimpy either. My husband was so surprised that I could walk up and down the hills on the trail without pain. You have changed my life. Gone are the “I’ll just stay in the car, you go” days. I really enjoyed being on the trails again, walking without pain. Downhills!!! Thank you for your skill in knee replacement. It was the most difficult of things for me to endure due to not being able to take pain meds, yet it was so worth the struggle to recovery. I literally cannot tell you what it means for me to have knees that work pain free. I truly did not realize how they held me back before. You gave me back my love for being outside on the trails and I am not afraid to get out there again and walk to my heart’s delight. With so much gratitude for you and your talented team.

I chose Dr. Dalury to perform a bilateral total knee replacement. I couldn’t be more… pleased with him, his staff and the amazing result he obtained for me. Dr. Dalury met with me in consultation and spent as much time with me as I desired to answer questions about the procedures. The surgeries were performed one week apart. After each surgery, Dr. Dalury, his PA and nurse visited me in the recovery room just to see how I was doing. I thought that this was a very nice gesture. I had one post-operative visit with the PA, Mike, who was very professional, and I will see Dr. Dalury for a 3 month post-op visit. My interactions with Dr. Dalury’s assistant Joyce have also been most positive. She was unfailingly accessible and responsive to my inquiries. I hesitate to say that anything or anyone is “perfect,” but my experience with Dr. Dalury has been as close to perfect as is possible. Read more “Close To Perfect As Is Possible”

Dear Dr. Wolock: Just over 3 years ago I fell and broke my right radius.… You performed an operation on December 20, and just for fun I chose a pink cast knowing it wouldn’t be on for long. Shortly thereafter you told me I also had a torn right rotator cuff. You repaired the rotator cuff in January, and told me that the injury was quite severe. I think of you almost every time I life one of my grandchildren over my head. I think of you often as I am doing home repairs, or working on my old American Flyer trains. I am profoundly thankful for your skills as a surgeon, and for your kind and compassionate treatment when I was your patient. I am sitting here now looking at the x-rays of big metal plate and screws you used to put my broken mess of an arm back together again.

Dear Dr. Brodie: I wanted to take a few moments to write and let you… know how right you were with your assessment of my problem and how well you did with the procedure. I am still amazed. I went two years with the problem you worked on and was in considerable pain a good part of the time. I saw no less than 5 doctors who really didn’t have a clue and seemed to pass it off as part of the pain you may feel with aging. You took the time to listen and probe and felt you knew what was wrong. You gave me a clear picture of what I could expect with each of the options you presented for action. You told me that if I took the course I did that I would probably be relieved of 80-90% of the problem yet still be mobile. You were right on target. Believe me I can live with the few moments of discomfort I sometimes feel. I have to be careful of some things I do—but I can walk and run again and for that I needed to say Thank You. Keep up the good work. May this card find you and yours in good health and happiness. Read more “Still Amazed!”

Very good communicator, very friendly and conservative in his approach. Great Dr.
I could barely walk when I went into his office with a torn meniscus. After… reviewing my x-rays and MRI he recommended aspirating the knee. The relief was immediate.

It took him about 30 seconds to diagnose my ruptured Achilles tendon. By the end… of my first appointment he had an OR day and time schedule for the following day.

It’s a bit of a walk on crutches from the parking lot to the door Read more “Skilled Surgeon, Unparalleled Bedside Manner!”
The BEST!! Did BOTH of my knee replacements! Saw him for 4 years PRIOR to… the replacements for conservative therapy. He gave me advice on the correlation between weight loss, physical therapy, increasing muscle mass, and diet on joint disease. Dr. Tarantino’s bedside manner, font of knowledge, friendliness, and professionalism make him and the ancillary staff an excellent resource in the treatment of osteoarthritis and other joint problems. I recommend Dr. Tarantino along with his Physician Assistant, Ben without reservations. BTW, I am a RN, so I KNOW a good physician when I interact with one! Read more “The BEST!!”
I saw Dr. Tarantino for the second time in 12 years. I am impressed at… his conservative approach. He makes you feel like you are the only person he’s seeing today, not rushed and takes ample time to explain many nuances that I do not believe I would have been shared by the average provider. I hope it’s at least another 12 years, but if not, I trust him and his judgment implicitly, and will definitely return to him if the need arises. Read more “I Trust Him and His Judgment Implicitly”

I am in the process of recovering from a third joint replacement surgery performed by… Dr. Winakur in the last 2 years. I have found him to be professionally friendly, personable, and an excellent communicator. From my initial appointment through the most recent surgery, Dr. Winakur has been thorough (and correct) in evaluation and has given me easily understood explanations of the surgical procedures to be performed. I received good instruction on preparing for each operation and excellent aftercare information. I have recovered quickly from each surgery; amazingly, at age 68, I returned to horseback riding 8 weeks after the second hip replacement. Commenting on this, my physical therapist (not associated with Towson Orthopedics) told me that the patients who recover from orthopedic surgery the best are the ones who have the best surgeons. I can only agree. Many thanks to him for his part in greatly improving my quality of life. Read more “Multiple surgeries with excellent results”

DR Fedder listened, educated me and prescribed a no nonsense approach to my low back issues. DR Fedder believes in taking proper steps to treat injuries, and looks at pills and surgery as a last line of treatment.

Dr DeFontes is an excellent foot surgeon and he answered all my questions and foot surgery went well. I eventually have to have the other big toe fused and will go back to him.

I had my back surgery on [date] 2019. I’ll never forget that date. Dr. Crandall… and his staff were truly “miracle workers.” Following painful/unsuccessful weeks of therapy, I was in absolute agony. I had displaced a vertebrae along with damaging a few disks while landscaping. I could barely walk a few yards. Because of nerve damage, I experienced sciatica down both legs and numbness in my feet. It felt as though I had a broken ankle and had to drag one leg. It also felt as though there was a vice in my lower back tearing me apart. Trying to sleep lying down was no longer possible. It was sheer hell. Through the kindness’ of others I’d hear, “You don’t want surgery. The repercussions could be so much worse!” When you cannot walk, are in excruciating pain from nerve damage, can’t sleep, and starting to drink heavily to medicate yourself because pain re-leavers simply aren’t working, there truly is no alternative. I am very fond of St. Joseph’s hospital for their care of my elderly father these past 5 years. There was no doubt in my mind that they would have a skilled Orthopedic Department. I was very impressed with Dr. Crandall upon meeting him. Very professional, self assured – he gained my confidence quite readily. He also rearranged his schedule – and that of many others – to provide me with a surgery ASAP. I won’t say that the aftermath of surgery wasn’t painful, but within three weeks I no longer needed, nor to this day, have I taken a simple pill of any type for pain. I can walk up to three miles without discomfort and try to do so every day/other day. I did not have any followup therapy of any sort after my surgery. I no longer drink any alcohol. Dr. Crandall ordered a bone density machine to help my bones heal. I know many others who have had back surgery – not at St. Joseph’s – and no one has ever heard of the machine. I wear it – religiously – 2 hrs. a day for the next six to nine months. I feel great. I experience a few twinges here and there, and know when I should not continue doing something too strenuous. I wouldn’t think twice about undergoing surgery again, if necessary. I would highly recommend Dr. Crandall and his staff to everyone. Because of Dr. Crandall, I can walk again without any pain. Because of him, his staff and having my surgery at St. Joseph’s, I can have a Merry Xmas and look forward to a very Happy New Year. Read more “I Can Walk Again”

The BEST experience I have ever had in my life as a patient. I had… a total knee replacement in January [date] 2018 with Dr. Dalury at St. Joseph medical center. The care and attention provided by his team and the hospital was excellent. All calls to his office returned on the same day. Dr. Dalury is a very kind, professional and responsible doctor. He listens to you and doesn’t recommend the surgery unless it’s necessary. Dr. Dalury is the BEST orthopedic surgeon in US and I highly recommend him!

Dr. Dalury replaced my left knee in January 2018. Two days after surgery my incision… burst (because I pushed to hard to bend it) so I went to St. Joseph’s ER. They called the orthopedic surgeon on call fixed me up and told me to call Dr. Dalury the next day. When I called his office the next morning his staff already had a full report of what happened and instructions on what to do next. He explains things in a way an everyday person can understand and not medical terms that make no sense. He has never rushed me through an appointment and answers ALL of my questions. I’ve been to many doctors for many different problems and Dr. Dalury is by far the best doctor I have ever seen!! Also everyone of his support staff are just as thorough and kind. I would give him more then 5 stars if that was possible. Read more “Answers ALL of My Questions”

I’m a physician with lots of orthopedic surgeon friends all over the country. I developed… avascular necrosis of the right hip requiring a total hip replacement. I asked my knowledgeable friends who the best hip surgeon in the DC/MD/VA area is and they all recommended Dr Manson. He replaced my right hip without any problems using a modern anterior approach that results in faster healing than other approaches. I felt that I received outstanding care. Dr Manson knows what he’s doing and he puts his patients’ best interests first. 5 stars! Read more “Total Hip Replacement”
Dr Mulliken replaced my right hip two years ago. I had the left one replaced… by another “surgeon” with robotic assist six years ago. They damaged my sciatic nerve permanently.

I Love my Orthopaedic Surgeon!! I had my Total knee replacement surgery done by Dr.… Theodore Manson @ St. Joseph’s hospital. Within 3wks after my surgery I no longer need or use my walker or cane to walk! 🙏🏽🙏🏽 I get around like I use to🙌🏾 Yes of course I feel some post op pain every now and then bcuz I still have scar tissue that takes time to fully heal. However I have over 85% LESS PAIN than I did before surgery. My pain score is about a 3 now on a daily basis💯 So Dr. Manson & my Family was correct I DO NOT REGRET HAVING IT DONE!!! 😊 I initially went to Dr. Manson for Pain in my RIGHT KNEE…However, Dr. Manson immediately found the problem to why I was having most of the pain in my right knee & it was caused by my LEFT KNEE… Back in 2016 I had a meniscus tear repair surgery done by a ortho doctor I’ll NEVER trust again…I was putting a lot of pressure on my right knee to ease the pain in my Left knee. (Pretty much favoring one for the other & caused more damage)… At any rate I had No/None/ZERO CARTILAGE IN MY LEFT KNEE.. He immediately informed & encouraged me to have the total knee replacement surgery ASAP bcuz I needed it desperately… I was really afraid nervous scared etc… The injections weren’t working at all & all of my options were a thing of the past… I then talked to Family/ Friends who personally & actually had this surgery done just to get some sound advice… Well Thank you Jesus for giving me the strength & courage to make another great life changing decision for the betterment of my life🙌🏾 Dr. Manson is a very caring, Loving Surgeon who is very Attentive , Compassionate & Dedicated to his patients & his work… He will be replacing my right knee in the near future but for now He’s giving me the cortisone shots bcuz it’s not bad at the moment 🙌🏾🙏🏽🙏🏽 THANKS AGAIN DR. MANSON! You’re The BEST ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON & I give you 20 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️sss💜👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Read more “Total Knee Replacement Surgery”

In January of 2000, I was injured at work and my left wrist was broken… in 13 places. As a result, I was equipped with hardware I refer to as a “suitcase handle” at a hospital in Harford County. Fast-forward to when, after several attempts to make adjustments to the hardware and causing unmentionable pain, that doctor referred me to Dr Michael J Marion. Thanks to Doctor Marion and the staff at St Joseph’s Hospital I came away pain free and was released for return to work 6 months ahead of schedule. Here it is 20 years later and I have never had any complications or discomfort, and enjoy full freedom of movement with screws and plates still installed. Many thanks to Dr Michael J Marion and the staff. Read more “Repaired Another’s Mistake”

Dr. McCambridge is wonderful. Very nice, knowledgeable, and professional. Highly recommended.
I normally don’t write reviews but Dr. Defontes was an amazing doctor. My daughter broke… her fibula above the growth plate and her tibia through the growth plate and he was very knowledgeable about her conditions. He explained everything thoroughly so we understood everything and was very patient and kind. I couldn’t be happier with how he was with her, so sensitive and caring. We couldn’t have asked for a better doctor during this awful time, he was absolutely amazing! Read more “Amazing Doctor”
Dr. Langhammer is the best! After seeing another specialist initially, I switched to Dr. Langhammer… and it was the best choice I could have made. She is to the point, no messing around, but in an extremely nice and professional manner. She cares about the well-being of her patients and it shows. I’ve had the first of 2 surgeries done by her and could not be happier with the outcome. She explains everything so you can understand, tells you what she is going to do and why. The 6″ scar from my surgery is almost unnoticeable! Would highly recommend her to anyone! Read more “Absolutely Amazing!”

Several of my family members have been treated by Dr. Tredinnick as well as fellow… athletes. So when I required ACL surgery, prior to beginning my commitment to play division 1 lacrosse, I followed advise and went to him. As a minor, he was very conscious of making sure I understood every aspect of my health and he discussed his recommendations with me as well as my parents. He did not treat me like a number, his decisions were for my best interest not just to get me back on the field quickly, but to have a healthy knee for the next 70 years. On his advise we chose a surgery that took longer for the initial recovery but it also has better long term results. He is cautious, requiring me to wear a brace when I was on the field months longer than other athletes with different surgeons. My repaired knee tested stronger than my good knee 1 year post surgery. 3 years later I tour the other ACL while playing lacrosse at school. My experience with my second surgery confirmed my belief that anyone who is treated by Dr. Tredinnick is lucky to have him on your team! I highly recommend him!

Dr. Fedder was recommended to me by a friend when my daughter needed surgery for… L-5-S1 herniation w/crushed S-1, almost to drop-foot. He saved her from drop-foot & she has been pain free for the last 10 years & counting. My son also herniated L4-L5 & could hardly walk or function daily without severe pain. Dr. Fedder saved his back & he has been pain free for the last 7 years. I herniated L-4,L-5 (3) years ago. Root nerve was crushed on right side & touching on left side. I couldn’t sit, stand or walk without severe pain. I have been pain free since. Right after I herniated my discs my mother fell & needed a spine fusion. She is pain free & living her life without any problems. Dr. Fedder has been a God send to our family. I don’t know where we would be today without him. I highly recommended him!!!

I am now more than 1 year post op for a total right knee replacement.… Suffice it to say that everything went as planned with an exceptionally fast and absolutely complete recovery. Pain was easily controlled with meds and ice. Rehab was quick, with me being back to swimming within 8 weeks. Now I am not even aware of having an artificial knee. But this result was not by accident. Dr. Dalury is one of the true leaders and innovators in the field, participating in the design of implants and associated tools and the development of a widely adopted “cocktail” of analgesics that he injects into the wound prior to closing, that keeps you virtually pain free for the first 24 hours, allowing prompt discharge to home and time for other meds to kick in. Simply put, he has elevated his game to an art form. With more than 15,000 knee replacements to his credit, he is fast and accurate. I also discovered that the total cost of a knee replacement done by him is significantly lower than for others. Why, I wondered. It turns out somewhat counter intuitively, that cheaper is better. Average costs are based upon the total costs spread across the number of patients. If there is a bad outcome (infection, hospitalizations, subsequent replacements) that doctor’s average cost goes up. Do it right the first time, have excellent outcomes, and the average cost is low. And on top of all the above, Dr. Dalury is a wonderful person, taking time to answer all questions and genuinely caring about you as a person. Read more “Dr. Dalury – exceptional in all regards”
I spent a few years getting injections in my knees due to bone on bone… arthritis. Dr. Detterline repaired my left knee meniscus tear beautifully. Several years later, he performed a right total knee replacement on me. I have recovered very well from both surgeries. Many people even doctors have commented on how unnoticeable the scar on my right knee is. Dr Detterline is an excellent surgeon with awesome bed side manners. He is very easy to speak with, patience and very knowledgeable in his field of practice. I would highly recommend Dr. Detterline to others, in fact I sent my husband to him for shoulder arthritis treatments. I still see him for my left knee arthritis that will eventually need a knee replacement and I will definitely have Dr Detterline performed that surgery. Thank you Dr. Detterline for all your help, support and expertise. Read more “Dr Detterline – TKR”

We were quite amazed by Dr. McCambridge, when my son suffered a knee injury playing… basketball his pediatrician was certain that there was no permanent damage, but since the pain and swelling was still bad after 2 weeks he sent us to Dr. McCambridge. When examining him she notice that his joints are very tight and said that it would be hard to diagnose a tear without an MRI due to the tightness of his joints. It turned out that his ACL was completely torn and his meniscus and he had to have reconstructive surgery.
We were so pleased to see that Dr. McCambridge recognized that an MRI was necessary to rule out a tear, because if she had judge just based on the movement in the knee he might have suffered way longer and never known why.
Thank you Dr. McCambridge for your skilled diagnostic Read more “Amazing Diagnosis Skill”

I have only been in to see Dr. Dabbah at the University of Maryland, St.… Joseph’s O’Dea Medical Center, on a single occasion thus far. I didn’t have a specific recommendation for Dr. Dabbah per se, only one for the medical group in general from 2 separate individuals. I couldn’t have been more impressed with Dr. Dabbah’s treatment plan, i.e., the 2 medications he prescribed took care of nearly all of my pain I was experiencing in my lower back, pelvic area, and both legs. Since completing the medications, I have been attending PT twice a week.
I don’t know about you, but I have been to many Orthopedic Surgeons with a variety of medical issues and their primary recommendation has usually been surgery? Dr. Dabbah does not fall into this grouping! Read more “Dr. Dabbah Is Conservative In His Approach To Treatment”

He perfomed my Talonavicular ankle fusion. My ankle was shattered. I wasn’t supposed to be… able to walk again. By body cut off blood flow to my ankle, basically my body gave up on the limb. Because blood wasnt circulating my ankle wouldnt heal naturally. I needed 2 screws and a stabilizer. Dr. Brodie predicted it would take 18 months to recover and that was just hoping i would be able to walk again. 3 months post op i was walking. At 5 months i i w cleared with no restrictions. I am now boxing. Just yesterday i was playing basketball with my little brother. Dr Brodie is a great surgeon and a great doctor. He explained everything clearly and will go the extra mile to make sure his patients come out better than they came in and then some. Ive heard ppl say they dont like him… Ive also noticed these ppl wait forever to get help for their injuries or the injury is so bad they is literally nothing a doctor can really do. But i tell u as a patient that wasnt supposed to be able to walk and ended competing in athletics once more, Dr. Brodie is a blessing. Read more “Talonavicular Ankle Fusion”

First let me say I have never taken the time to leave a review for… anything. However, I feel such outstanding care deserves my time. Dr. Todd Tredinnick has been providing me orthopedic care for several years now. He performed surgery on my left shoulder several years ago and the results have been excellent.

Dr. Manson is a special and caring doctor. I went to him two years ago… with a knee problem and he did a total knee revision on a knee replacement that I had, and it seemed to work until this past spring when I awoke with my knee swollen. I went back to Dr. Manson and he said something wasn’t right, so he did some tests, and x-rays, CT scans, etc. Nothing really showed up, so onto physical therapy for 4 to 6 weeks (3 times a week). When everything Dr. Manson prescribed didn’t work, Dr. Manson did more X-rays and said I needed to have a new revision on my knee. Dr. Manson gave me the choice if I wanted it done or not. He suggested that I have it done so that I could go back to a almost normal life style. I had my surgery on [date]. When Dr. Manson did the surgery, he told me that when he got inside my knee he found a few other things that were wrong so he went ahead and fixed the problems, so that they wouldn’t have to be fixed later.
I would also like to say that Dr. Manson’s staff is also very helpful and caring.
If I could I would give Dr. Manson 20 stars and vote him TOP DOC!!!!!
Thank you!! Dr. Manson and Staff, You All Are The Best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read more “Best Knee Surgeon”
I had numbness, tingling, and weakness in my left hand. Turns out it was Ulnar… Nerve Syndrome (cousin to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome). The nerve in my elbow was significantly compressed causing me to lose most function in my hand. From my initial consultation with Dr. Brian Shiu in the Towson office, I was treated with the best of care. Dr. Shiu and his staff made me feel comfortable and took great precaution during this pandemic. I eventually needed surgery in September. This went as well as it could possibly go. I was almost fully functional within a day. My follow-up appointment went well. And since the pace of my recovery was so fast, I did not have to return. I have had a few other procedures in my life. But, by far, this was the best experience. From his expertise to his bedside manners, Dr. Shiu is truly a superb physician. And the staff was so great through all of my calls and appointments, I have already referred the practice to a few people. Read more “Dr. Shiu and Towson Ortho staff were phenomenal!”

As the wife of a patient, I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Wolock.… My starting playing sports at a very young age up until his late 30’s. He’s also a PE teacher. Years of getting hit, repeated throwing and catching have done a number on him. He’s had 2 surgeries now by Dr Wolock (Elbow and rotator cuff) and has worked his magic! While he’s still healing from the rotator cuff surgery, I know he’s going to be back to his old self in no time thanks to Dr Wolock. Read more “Wonderful!!”

I have worked with Towson Orthopaedic for many years, however today was my first experience… as a patient. I was thoroughly impressed with the entire staff and specifically Dr. Wolock. In having chronic elbow pain, Dr. Wolock was honest in his assessment and did not want to make the problem worse by injecting with a shot. I honestly was hoping to get an injection today, however after talking to Dr. Wolock, I completely understand his rationale and certainly trust his experience.

First: Dr Tredinnick was very patient and took all tests and precautions to determine the… extent of damage to my shoulder. Therapy, exercise, and rehab proved to painful due to the extent of damage.
Due to my age and tendon damage I was referred to his partner Dr Shiu to consider reverse total shoulder replacement. That surgery took place a little over one year ago. With covid concerns driving decisions I decided to rehab and exercise on my own after Dr Shiu provided all of the exercise routines. Progress has been slow but steady. This ordeal started in November 2019 and today I am in MUCH better shape than I was back them. Range of motion and strength are steadily progressing.
I am 100% satisfied with the evaluation and courses of action taken by this medical team. I recommend them. Read more “Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement”

Dr Dalury, using robotic surgery, gave me a full knee replacement. I dreaded the pain… I was told to expect by so many. But using this robotic surgery as skillfully as he did, I experienced minimal pain. It was more discomfort than pain and minimal bruising. I was able to dispense with my walker in less than a week and now six weeks out, I know longer use my cane and am able to walk a few miles a day. I do strenuously exercise daily, doing far more than prescribed. I think you can’t find a more skillful surgeon with such a calm presence as you have in Dr Dalury. Read more “Full knee replacement”
I had a torn meniscus in my left knee and Dr. Tarantino repaired that with… minimally invasive surgery back in January 2014. That process was awesome, between Dr. Tarantino, his fellow, Ben Gardner, and the staff at St. Joseph Hospital Center. When it came time in January of 2020 for my Total Knee Replacement, there was no doubt in my mind where I was going…Dr. T!!! He has a wonderful bedside manner, explains every detail so you know exactly what is going on, and he doesn’t rush through your visit. I felt, as his patient, highly valued and as if I am the only one in the office! In this day and time, that is really something!! My experience for my TKR, from Nikki in his office, to the Orthopedic Pre-Surgical class at St. Joe, to the fabulous care by the staff at St. Joe, and Dr. Tarantino and Ben Gardner’s “pain protocol” was amazing!!!! If you follow the protocol to the letter, it will significantly reduce your pain levels and allow you to do the PT required to recover.

There needs to be more doctors like Dr. Tarantino. I suffered a torn ACL and… my knee feels fantastic 6 months out of surgery. He also went the extra mile by suturing my medial and lateral meniscus back together when they didn’t necessarily need that, but it would allow them to heal quicker. He is extremely flexible with seeing patients and didn’t clear me to participate in 5K races until I was 6 months out because he’s found that if you get cleared before that, the likelihood of a re-tear is higher. I love how he explained his reasons for doing things during surgery, and he always answered the numerous questions that I had, and there were many, without hesitation. Dr. Tarantino is an outstanding surgeon and a great man, too. If I ever need to have another surgery, I will go to him again and again. I STRONGLY recommend Dr Scott Tarantino!! Read more “Torn ACL”
