Physicians Who Treat This Condition
Patient Reviews (unedited)
Dr. Tredinnick operated on my shoulder in 2007. Not only is he a great surgeon, his bedside manner is beyond reproach! Such a wonderful person and surgeon. They just don’t get any better than him. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Schroder: Thank you for being a positive and caring part of my life. You have been presented with many concerns and made my confidence in you grow with each one.
Here’s a photo of me dancing at my 70th birthday celebration!! Thanks for all you did to make this possible. Sincerely,
If it were possible to give more stars to Dr. Tredinnick I would. He truly deserves them. He is the BEST!!! Thank You, C.D.Rutherford
Great team for Orthopeadic needs. Had a complete left hip replacement and I’m completely pain free.
Just had a TKR done by Dr. Scott Tarantino at St. Joseph’s Medical Center. What a fantastic group of physicians and associates! Dr. Tarantino came highly recommended by my brother (had a total knee replacement 7 years ago), and I… am, without a doubt, glad that I went to see Dr. Tarantino back in December 2015! Although, I’m 2 weeks post op now, my knee is already feeling stronger and more supportive than it has been for a long, long time! My entire surgical experience has been awesome thanks to Towson Orthopedics and Associates! Thank you so much!!! I’m going to need to have my other knee replaced sometime soon, and am definitively having Dr. Tarantino, and the same medical professionals get me through the operative experience.
Also, the pre operative joint class is highly recommended to prepare you for your surgical hospitalization experience. Good job everyone, and thanks again! Read more “Fantastic Group”
We took our teenage son to Dr. Detterline for a second opinion after months of PT under the care of a different ortho doc and missing an entire season of sports. Bilateral hip surgery, full recovery, and back on the… field within the time frame discussed. We couldn’t be happier with the high level of care, professionalism, and addressing his needs both physically and emotionally. Yes, we have spent over an hour in the waiting room for appointments…but that’s a small part of our experience. Read more “Full Recovery After Bilateral Hip Surgery”
An extremely skilled professional. Dr. E. Langhammer is nurturing, caring and shows genuine compassion for getting her patients back to normal. Would highly recommend her.
Dr. Tredinnick: (5-Stars) I had a bicep tenodesis. Dr. Tredinnick and his team were fantastic during the day of the operation. He has been honest, thorough, and very detailed through the whole process. He has been such an integral part… in helping me find out what’s causing pain in my arm/shoulder. Read more “Honest, Thorough, and Very Detailed”
Very skilled, professional, patient, and compassionate. Dr. Langhammer worked with my son (9yrs old) after a fall resulting in a torn ligament in his right thumb. As he was the patient, she focused on his needs and questions and was… extremely attentive and worked to make sure he understood all the steps involved in his path to recovery. We highly recommend Dr. Langhammer as her main focus was to make sure my son was getting the best possible care and that everything was done to ensure the proper healing of his thumb. Thank you!

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!

Had a horrible should injury and never thought I’d work again, 6 months later I was back at it!
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”
Dr. Codd is the greatest!! He has done total shoulder replacements on BOTH of my Mom’s shoulders over the past 5 1/2 years!! I would highly recommend him to anyone!!
Dear Dr. Marion, Lucky me! I just wanted you to know how very grateful I am to you. You do so well and you are a wonderful cheer leader. Thank you!
This doctor sees my 101 yr. old father. He has the patience and has helped him in many of his difficult areas. I highly recommend him.
Your knowledge and expertise were instrumental in reattaching my bicep and repairing both my left and right shoulder rotator cuff. You took time to answer all my questions and gave me the education I need to now… work smarter and not harder. You used the latest, yet tried and proven techniques and procedures. Given the damage to my shoulders, you did an amazing repair. Add to that your friendly approach and supportive demeanor makes you world class in your profession. I have recommended you repeatedly to many friends and acquaintances! Thank you. Read more “Highest Quality Surgery and Treatment”
Towson Orthopedics is the place to go. The staff is genuinely caring, helpful and take the time to make sure you are ok and understand the steps in treatment/recovery.

Read more “Towson Orthopedics is the Place to Go!”

Richard and I wish to Thank ALL of you! for taking care of me on November 2nd for my shoulder surgery! I do not know what you did but from Nov. 2nd to today I have had absolutely NO PAIN!… No Discomfort. If you created a No Pain Pill, please market that! Never have I ever been through surgery without some discomfort. Enjoy this goodie and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. All Our Very Best Blessings Read more “NO PAIN!”
Dr. Brodie: Thank You for helping me to walk again.
Paul McAfee operated on me nearly 20 years ago. TO this it still like a miracle. I SUFFERED with so much pain till I was referred to him. I would recommend him to anyone. An thank you again.
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. I cannot say enough good things nor thank him enough for… the pain relief he has provided me. He suggested holding off on surgery unless the swelling and pain return. He is a blessing to his patients. Thank you so much Dr. Tarantino. Read more “He is a Blessing!”
First time visiting Towson Orthopaedic Associates and had a great visit. Dr. Schroder is awesome!! If you are looking for a specialist please give them a call. He explained everything, took time to learn about me and my daily routine… and put together a great plan to get me back in action!!! Read more “Dr. Schroder is awesome!!”
Amazing and kind doctor. Surgically repaired my daughter’s clavicle after explaining all the options. Highly recommend!
Dr Schroder was wonderful to have as my surgeon. He’s caring, listens, takes his time to explain things. I had a partial knee replacement in Dec 2019. I can walk again without pain. It’s a process of healing and strengthening… but that’s my responsibility. I’m just so thankful for Dr Schroder and for this second chance. I highly recommend him. Read more “Fantastic Experience”
To Dr. Detterline, Melissa and Everyone Else in the Office, Thank you for all your care and help. Merry Christmas!
Dr. Clough: Thank you for taking such great care of my Dad. He is doing much better now and I have no doubt its because of your skill and professionalism. He means the world to me, thank you!
Back in 1986 Dr McAfee performed back surgery on me while he was practicing at John Hopkins, and every year since I have thanked him for my continued ability to move. Thank you sir! I still have the hand written… card from him saying I have metal (cotrel Dubousset rods) in my back from the l4-S1 vertebra. I can’t stop thanking him! Read more “Thank you!”
Hi Dr. (Brodie): Wishing you all the joy and happiness that Christmas brings! Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Hope you are doing well, and there is lots of knee business! I am A-ok, and never cease to be amazed at… the new life I enjoy, each day, with my knees, thanks to you. Read more “Amazed at the New Life I Enjoy!”
Dr. Tarantino replaced both knees and my right hip. My replacement parts are better than the originals. I will definitely see him for my left hip replacement. I highly recommend him.
I so happy and so blessed that I found you and your staff you are such a wonderful caring Dr it feels so good to walk like normal person thanks again
Dr. McCambridge was great with my daughter who fell and fractured her wrist and growth plate. Reliable and polite staff.
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. Give Mike my regards as well. Wishing you much joy and happiness. Read more “You Have Changed My Life”
Dr. McAfee is the best! He has done 2 of my spinal fusions and I am doing better than I ever have!
Dr. Detterline is an awesome doctor and a great human being, which reflects in his caring bedside manners. I came to him after two failed knee surgeries, being in pain and having limited mobility. After the total knee replacement surgery,… I ended up pain free, mobile again, walking, kayaking and traveling. I highly recommend Dr. Detterline. Read more “He gave me my mobility back”
Compassionate, considerate, and she listens to you! Ruxton office during Covid was as thorough as could be. Brandon, what a guy! Gentle, efficient, and interactive. Tabitha, you got me in and done during Covid with a broken elbow.

Dr. Codd repaired my rotator cuff and removed a bone spur about 7 years ago. Recovery was quick, physical therapy was started early and I continued the exercises after pt was completed. I went to a bull roast the day… after surgery and Disney world the next week. Didn’t miss my golf season and back to playing better golf in no time. Great experience for actually having to get surgery! Dr. Codd did both rotator cuffs for my husband (different years) and he had the same experience. Excellent. Read more “Didn’t Miss Golf Season”
Dr. Fedder: We wanted to express our sincere thanks to Dr Fedder and Kathryn Schweier. My husband was supposed to have a diskectomy/laminectomy on May 9th. Everything was progressing towards being taken into the OR. We were speaking with the… anesthesiologist and Kathryn when my husband mentioned he had not been experiencing any of the symptoms he had originally been seen for. Kathryn immediately reached Dr Fedder and he decided that surgery was no longer necessary. Thanks, ~ Tricia Read more “Sincere Thanks!”

Now, I have two perfect knees to enjoy life and especially my grandson!
Don’t hesitate to do the surgery…it was truly one of the easiest to recover from.
From office to OR, this is one skilled team! Read more “One Skilled Team!”
Doctor Fedder: Thank you so much for the great job you did on Dave. I feel like I have my husband back. You get an A++++!
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”
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”
I was a patient here, 20 years ago, with a smashed heal bone. Now my son’s broken arm. Class act back then and still is now.

Dr. McCambridge is wonderful. Very nice, knowledgeable, and professional. Highly recommended.
Dr. Wolock took good care of my 9 y.o son who suffered a dislocated wrist after falling from his bike. He made my son feel secure and gave us comfort as well as assurance from the 1st time we’ve seen… him and throughout my son’s follow-up check-ups.

Dr. Tim has helped me with both of my shoulders. After years of cortisone injections, he suggested a reverse shoulder procedure. I told him that’s anatomically incorrect. He said, “Yes, it is, but I can do that!” I have friends… who can’t lift their hand above their head. I’m 85 and I am able to keep playing tennis. Read more “85 and Able to Keep Playing Tennis!”

Dr. McCambridge is a wonderful, knowledgeable and thorough doctor.
Lorrie: Just touching base with you after almost four years since my C6-C7 surgery on October 2009. I just referred my pastor’s wife to Dr. McAfee and decided to look at your web site again. Thanks again for the help… that you all afforded me. I can work out to the max on 15 machines at the gym, water ski, snow ski, ride ATV, do construction/carpentry, and so on. Before my surgery, I was told by a physical therapist and pain medicine provider that I would have to give up those things forever. God had different plans for me and helped me find your organization and Dr. McAfee. For some reason, it still bothers me to run on the road as I used to do all year round, but I like being outdoors, so I’ve switched to bike riding when weather is good and the elliptical trainers when it is not. Thanks again, Read more “I Can Work Out, Water Ski, Snow Ski…”
Dr Bruce Wolock, very patient oriented, he did wrist plate & pin surgery, carpal tunnel, elbow & arm surgery on friends, I was present on all visitation before & after procedures. A very impressive Dr & individual.
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!!”
Dr Tarantino is the best! In an age of assembly line medicine he offers old school, unrushed, personal professionalism. So glad I found 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”
Dr. Hobart is on time for the appointment, she has a gentleness about her and she is certainly not an alarmist. I highly recommend her. Will return to her for all ortho issues.

Dr. Paul McAfee performed a 60 degree scoliosis corrective surgery on me when I was 15 years old. He did an absolutely incredible job and kept me as calm as possible throughout the process.

Dr. Detterline performed knee surgery on me two weeks ago. Although I was expecting it, I had no pain post op. Yes, he does run late with his appointments but when he gets in the exam room he listens to… you attentively, does not rush, is very knowledgable, and explains things in detail so you can understand your problem and how he will fix it if need be. He thoroughly explains every option and alternative treatment and gives you plenty of time to think of and ask questions after he gives a plan of treatment. He operated on me several years ago for a fractured ankle and I found him to be very compassionate then, too.. I would give him a 10 if I could and this is coming from a retired orthopedic nurse.

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 found DR Fedder simply by an internet search. I say simply, but my search was done after walking out of several offices when doctors refused to listen to me, kept trying to push pills…
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.
Thanks to his advice, some work on my part, my low back is doing just fine. As such, I will be seeing him again for other spine issues. I know I will be in good hands. Read more “Quality DR with a no nonsense approach”

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!”

Dr [Tarantino] was incredible and so honest! I tore my ACL and he recommended holding off on surgery because it was not a complete tear.

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. I am a very active person and his care has allowed me to continue my active lifestyle. He is not only professional and outstanding in his field, but truly cares about his patients as well. Dr. Tredinnick has provided care for my Mom, sister, aunt, and numerous friends. I cannot recommend him highly enough! Read more “Outstanding Care”

Dr. Shiu has treated my wife and myself for shoulder injuries. He is very knowledgeable, listens extremely well, is patient, and has an outstanding bedside manner. Thanks, Doc!
He’s given me two shots in my knee in the past year. He’s friendly and knows what he’s doing. I’ve been to doctors who are horrible at giving shots. Dr. Tredinnick is a magician.
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”
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. After Jones I was very leery of anyone else working on me I had a special relationship with Dr. Jones. but over time Dr. Brian Mulliken has done more then prove himself to me his work is outstanding. I wouldn’t be on my two hind legs without him. Read more “Outstanding!”
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”
Great doctor, staff, and establishment. I have never seen a better, well oiled machine. Bruce Wollock is at the top of his game. I would recommend anyone that needs orthopaedic attention to see him, and him only. Five stars all… the way…thanks! Read more “Five Stars all the Way”
Dr. Winakur: Just stopped in to say Hi and THANKS AGAIN for operating on my broken (in half) collarbone. I really still do appreciate you putting me back together.
Everyone is so professional as they should be and very nice.
Dr. Wolock is just the best shoulder, elbow and hand surgeon in the Baltimore area and the people who work there are true professionals
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!”
Really impressed with his interest in my nerve damage in my wrist and elbow. Gave me a shot of Cortisone in my wrist and relieved a lot of my pain. Scheduled for elbow surgery to release compression of nerves. A… pleasant experience with Dr Shiu and his staff! Read more “Really Impressed!”

Dr Clough listened to me and made me feel so comfortable leading up to and following my ACL repair. He was all around an amazing doctor and surgeon, and I am so thankful.
This Doctor is fantastic. My other doctor also goes to Dr Dalury for his Orthopedic needs. I can’t say enough great things about him.
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. As I’ve said before, I hold you in high esteem for having reattached right-arm tendons after I had severed them in a glass door incident in 1999. Sincerely yours, Read more “I Hold You in High Esteem!”

Hello, Dr. McAfee: I want to say thank you to you and the team who consulted with and operated on my Dad on March 13. I live in Wisconsin and wish I could have been there. My brother Brian, my… mom and our family appreciate your care for Dad both many years ago and today. We are all hopeful for relief for him as he now recovers and recuperates. It’s been a tough few years for all of us and we all are hopeful for our great dad to be more himself–happy, joking, cheerful–once again. Read more “Thank you!”
Dr. Mulliken: He represents the very best in his quality of medical practice and genuine compassion for his patients. ~Thanks from Mr. & Mrs. Dean K.
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 have been going to towson orthopedic for year and Dr Todd Tredinnick has done both of my surgery.
I had my left shoulder replaced. Beforehand, I couldn’t lift my arm above my neck, now I’m 100%. I had the surgery in 2017. Thanks again Dr Codd.
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.

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. Dr. Shui understood our time constraint, worked with us and performed a Latarjet procedure on my left shoulder. He was super efficient and 3 months later my shoulder is on the way to 100% recovery – I received my medical waiver from the DoD, and will be joining the United States Naval Academy this June. Throughout the whole expirence, Dr. Shiu was very personal and sincere with everything. Great Doctor, 10/10, highly recommend Read more “10/10, Highly Recommend!”
Dr. McCambridge and the whole office was amazing when I had to take my 21 month old daughter to get assessed for a possible fracture in her arm.

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 had asked for a skiing weekend for Christmas, I got it. A month or so before I was planning to go my knee did something unexpected and unpleasant. Zak Everhart was almost immediately available and given the good care… I’d received from other PA’s at TOA this seemed like an obvious choice. I’m 60 years old but refuse to slow down and Zak quickly understood this. He didn’t treat me like a dottering old fart and took my concerns about REALLY wanting to go skiing without ending as a crumpled mass of humanity at the bottom of the slope seriously. He navigated all of these concerns perfectly and I had a wonderful time skiing with my son. Well Done Zak, thank you. Read more “Skiing with an iffy knee.”

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.

Dear Dr. Kenneth Crandall, I would like to thank you and your associates at St. Joseph’s Hospital for the excellent care that I received in August 2019 during and after my surgery. As a surgeon myself, I appreciated your thoughtful… and careful evaluation of my problem and the technical skill and judgement required to perform my spinal reconstruction. To be honest, I was not anticipating the complete resolution of my symptoms. I have been pleasantly surprised with the resulting absence of my foot drop and leg pain. I am sure you will have a long and successful career. Good luck and, again, THANK YOU. Sincerely, Read more “Complete Resolution of My Symptoms”
Ben visited me after being re-admitted with a BP issue after my TKR. His expertise and competence along with his kind and caring bedside manner were exceptional.

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!

I loved Dr. Brodie he did a great job I’m recomemding him to my grand daughter
Dr. Hobart & staff, Thank you so much for taking such good care of my sister. Also, thank you to Brandon for his kindness & patience. Much appreciated!
Dr [Dalury] is the best. He is a straight shooter. He won’t do any unnecessary procedures and he knows what is best and backs it up with reasearch/facts.
Dr. McAfee restored me to health after another doctor and institution crippled me. I am very grateful as no one else would even look to help as they do not touch other doctor’s screw ups lest they cause a law… suit or something. He cared about my health and wisely used a diagnostic tool which explained the problem, namely a seated MRI which showed spinal cord compression. His team is so organized that it was a night and day difference in my surgical experience. I think he and his team are the BEST! I didn’t even need pain meds when I went home, only ice. Read more “Dr. McAfee and His Team are the BEST!”
Dr Brodie is the best! My bunion surgery was rather complicated and he did an amazing job! I will never need the surgery again on that foot! The office runs like clockwork and the staff are all wonderful.
Dr. Tarantino is awesome. He makes you feel at ease. Always listens. His staff is also excellent.
Drs Marion, Burgess and Staff, Thank you for your high level of care that I received during my recent surgery. The teamwork, professionalism and skill were of the highest standard. Continue to keep the bar high.
Everyone here is fantastic!! They came Highly recommended to me from friends and family who have been treated here and I certainly will be recommending them from here on in.
I recommend this establishment to any and every 1….There is alot of doctors that work out of here and there all amazing doctors
It has been a pleasure to work with you. Thank you very much for your time and expertise in caring for John with the surgery. We appreciate that you tried to contact Dr. Hou. See you soon in Bel Air.… Blessings, — Chris F. Read more “Thank You!”
The After hours staff is amazing here. Receptionist, techs and doctor are very welcoming, and friendly. Not a long wait at all.
Extremely pleased with the comprehensive care afforded by Dr. DeFontes. Carefully explained all options prior to decision to elect surgical treatment of my ankle fracture. Very caring, interactive style coupled with superb training in foot/ankle specialization. I would highly recommend… him. Read more “Extremely Pleased!”
I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your awesome team for the wonderful care I received during my recent surgery. From start date to current date, I must say that you are a wonderful team of professionals!… I never shared this with you but I have been a massage therapist for 20 yrs. and 11 of those years have been at my current place of employment, [hospital]. Because of my years of experience, I was asked to be part of our “Spine Team.” I have been an active member of this team for 5 yrs. so naturally, I “signed up” for surgery with them. That was completed on March 31st with a “traditional” fusion at C5-6. Knowing in my heart and training that these “fusions” lead to more fusions, I kept asking for peace within myself to have the surgery because physically, I knew I could not continue this way. As with all things, when asked for from a place of purity, my peace was given to me in the form of you and St. Joe’s! As soon as I met you and you took the time to ensure I knew what, why, where, and when, I knew I was in good hands and ready to “jump ship” from [hospital’s] techniques. I felt so calm and peaceful going into surgery because you took the time to make sure there were no T’s uncrossed and no I’s left undotted. I even have a documented history of anxiety! (That is why I meditate). This is a tough thing to accomplish in current health care, I feel. I can’t thank you all enough for being my “Knights in shining armour”, for always taking the extra time even when you already know you’re behind schedule and for your pure brilliant mind in creating (and sticking with that endeavor) the coalition! My body, my husband and my future thanks you! Many blessings to all of you! Truly & Sincerely, Read more “My Body, My Husband, and My Future Thanks You!”
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.

Dear Doctor Wolock: This thank-you is really overdue as I think of you, and bless you for your skill and good care. Since you replaced my left shoulder I am able to do all my chores/activities pain-free! The quality of… my life has improved so much that I am able to swim a few times a week, even re-learning the Australian Crawl and Backstroke which I’d been unable to do for at least three years. I am thus building strength and losing unwanted weight! I wish you many any years of good health and contentment. Read more “Pain-Free!”
The morning I found out that my uncle passed away was the same day of my surgery with Dr. Mulliken. He knew something was wrong that morning with me and I proceeded to tell him of our lost in the… family and his response “we can cancel the surgery until you are up to it” . I will ever forget that caring from him and that was over 20 years ago and that’s why he is still my Doctor to this day. Thank You Dr. Mulliken Read more “Caring”
I have been to several Ortho offices in the past 55 years. Dr Shiu is the greatest and has the most calming explanation of the problem and solution. I would 100% recommend him.

Dear Dr. Codd, I am 14 days out of total shoulder replacement and I’m completely pain free. I could not be any more enthused about my prospects of returning to my ultra-active life style. I want to thank you immensely… for your work. It is rare to find a surgeon like yourself.

Dr. Brodie was the only one to diagnose my problem. After several years of going to many Podiatrist’s for my problem within five minutes he knew I had Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome.

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”

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.

PATIENT: “Captain Ken W.
Sung to the tune of The Beverly Hillbilly’s: Come and listen to a story and it won’t be dumb, It’s about Dr. Wolock and my trigger finger thumb, Dr. said “Hey Ken, you’ll have surgery… at Three, But I got there early and they were nice as they could be. Well the first thing you know, there were forms to be filled out I knew of Dr. Wolock so I really had no doubt, I was taken back to pre-op just as speedy as can be, and that is when his staff began to dote and care for me. Well, Dr. Wolock stopped by to address any concern, He answered all my questions, always nice & never stern, He said “HEY KEN” , It’s your turn in O.R.1, And before I knew it, my surgery was done. The Post Op team with compassion & with care , Saw to my every need, every moment I was there, They escorted me out, true professionals to the end, I know I was a patient but I felt more like a friend. Well now it’s time to rest up, no need to moan and groan, the phone rang several times , The Doctor checked on me at home, Such a high level of care, for an average guy like me, I bet you’ll get the same great care, you heard it straight from me… Ken that is….healing fast, Great Care ! For those who are of a more serious nature: Outstanding in every aspect.

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”

I had a nagging elbow injury. Dr. Shiu explained all my options articulately and in layman’s terms. After progressively more treatments with no results, it was agreed that surgery was the way to proceed. Dr. Shiu explained every part of… the procedure, as this would be my first surgery.

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 Mulliken performed total hip replacement surgery on me which has relieved me of years of pain. His manner is professional and compassionate, and his post surgery follow-up is timely and thorough.
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”

I have been a patient of Dr. Clough since 2016. During the three plus years, Dr. Clough has treated my left knee for arthritis and sports injuries. This past September we agreed it was time for a knee replacement. I… had about two months to prepare. At Dr. Clough’s suggestion, I worked out the knee every day to help strengthen it prior to surgery. Surgery was on December 4, 2019. Yes, I had pain for about three weeks and then gradually it began to subside. Therapy was in my home for 4+ weeks and I progressed quickly. On February 4, 2020 I played nine holes of golf. In a short two months, I am pain free! I can’t say enough good things about how I was treated by everyone a Towson Orthopedic Assoc. But especially my Doctor! Thank you all!

3 years with a herinahed disc more pain then I can discribe here. That was before the surgery. After. No pain I was able to stop taking the pain meds as little as 1 week after the surgery. Wish I… had gone earlier would have saved me so much grife pain and money. It is nice to be able to use the computer and drive again with out pain. And as a software developer being able to use the computer is a must for me. I can once again work without pain. My issue was with c5 to c7.

For over 10 years I suffer from chronic lower back pain…resorted to every possible avenue to address the pain (PT, acupuncture, drugs, epidural injections, steroids, more drugs, etc.) to no avail. Visited many doctors who offered no solution and prescribed… more drugs. It affected every part of my life and it got to the point that I couldn’t even do the most menial of things.

In 1997 you accepted my vet clinic x-rays for my fractured ankle – Spiral fracture into the joint. Surgery, you said, but then you left the room, thought about it and said that since I’d walked on it for 10… days in Costa Rica and the joint was not displaced – no surgery needed. So just about.

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”
Dear Dr. Wolock: Mary Jo Huber, the nurse manager of St. Clare Medical Outreach, and I were talking recently about how much the patients of St. Clare depend on the generous pro bono service of physicians to meet their health… care needs and your name came up as an orthopedic surgeon who has provided some of that care. This letter of thanks to you is overdue, but I hope you will still know that your assistance with St. Clare patients has made a difference in their lives and their ability to have a better quality of life.

Dr Dalury did my second hip replacement. Recovery was so much easier than the first, and much less painful. Thanks Dr Dalury.
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!”

If all… doctors were more like you, all patients would care more about their recovery, and want to get better and well. Thank you again. Read more “Truly Appreciate Your Help!”
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. I marvel that I am able to throw a baseball, and go about my life as if my fall had never happened. So once again, my profound thanks for your help, and best wishes to you and your family this holiday season. Read more “My Profound Thanks”
Dr. McCambridge is a wonderful, knowledgeable and thorough doctor.
They are the best for anything orthopedic. Dr. Fedder did my back surgery and I am so grateful for him.
Dear Dr. Dabbah, Thank you for taking me as your patient. You are well known as a skilled surgeon, but you are also to be applauded for your compassion and generosity. I am sure it was not easy to listen… to me complain, but you were always very kind. I appreciate that you are responsible for each step I take and I will always be grateful. — Nancy W.

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. Forever grateful, Read more “Treated Me Like a Human Being, Not a Number”
Dear Dr. Clough: It was fun having you as my doctor! I will miss you! ~ Reagan P., Age 7
Dr. Tarantino is friendly, direct, knows what he’s doing. Wish all MDs were like him.
Did an awesome job on my neck fusion, I have recommended his services often to my friends and family.
I’ve had 2 surgeries with Dr. McAfee. He has done an amazing job. Love him. The only regrets I have, that I hadn’t done them early enough and had to spend many years in misery and sufferings.

Dr. Jeffrey Brodie, I want to say thank you for the care you provided for me during my stay in February 2017. You were very attentive to my care and concerns. The food was very delicious, hot and prepared and… delivered well. My stay was brief and I am doing well after my total ankle replacement. I look forward to seeing you for my appointment and x-rays to see how I am doing so far with the surgery. I could not have asked for better doctors, hospital, staff and care. Thanks again.

On [date] around noon time, I suffered a fall that resulted in my fracturing both my shoulder and hip. My wife drove me to St. Joseph’s emergency room. I was seen immediately by staff and was operated on by Dr.… Elizabeth Langhammer. Dr. Langhammer turned out to be a wonder in terms of professionalism, caring and support. The followup sessions with the support staff was very much consistent with professionalism and competency I experienced at St. Joe’s. I later discovered that Dr. Langhammer’s specialty was hand, wrist and elbow. But, all signs indicted that the surgery was a total success on the hip (the shoulder’s break did not require an operation. Read more “Excellence in every aspect of service”
The staff here are wonderful, and made my 3yo feel safe and comfortable while treating her broken ulna. Dr. McCambridge is very caring and sat with my daughter during the x-rays, as I couldn’t at nearly 8mos pregnant. My daughter… was so enamored with Mr. Ray (who made her cast) that her and her older brother (who never even met Mr. Ray) have incorporated him into their pretend play. All people deserve this level of excellent, humanistic medical care. Read more “Excellent, Humanistic Medical Care”
I have had one surgery. It didn’t do what the doctor expected, my ankle wouldn’t fuse. So now we are going to have another. He had discussed this before my first surgery if the first one didnt work He would… have to go another route which I didn’t want but now I trusting Dr Brodie for my second in February. I am in good hands. Read more “Great, Compassion, Man/Doctor”
I had my severely broken foot repaired by Dr Brodie at the Towson office. He said it was a challenge to put it back together which he did an excellent job. Very professional and super nice guy and one hell… of a surgeon. The assistants did a great job during all my checkups. Thank you guys for all the work it took to put humpty dumpy back together.
I see Dr Clough at Belair for my knee and he also is very professional and nice guy have not had knee surgery yet but when I do I hope it goes as good as the foot surgery Read more “One Hell of a Surgeon”
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”
He did both of my knees. I would recommend this man
My 3 year old hurt herself on the trampoline and we went to after hours to get her seen. She ended up needing a boot for about 6 weeks and Dr. Defontes and EVERY person we came in contact with… at this practice was absolutely amazing. Not only with my daughter, but with explaining things to me and also giving her twin brother attention and making him feel welcome at every appointment. Absolutely amazing and will recommend this place to every single person who needs! Thank you for making this stressful experience, tolerable. Read more “Absolutely Amazing”
Dr Brodie was very thorough and explained everything to a “T” as to the plan we want to take
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!”
We found him very pleasant and helpful. He is not money hungry. If he feels you should not have surgery he tells you not like other doctors that would jump into operating.
To Joyce and the staff at Dr. Dalury’s practice, I just want to express my appreciation of your patience, cheerfulness and professionalism in every encounter that I’ve had with your office. Joyce you are so kind, and Dr. Dalury and… Lynn and the P.A. are so good – thanks for getting me back on my feet! Read more “Patience, Cheerfulness and Professionalism”
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”
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 Langhammer and Dr Defontes. Excellent in their field of orthopedics.
I am so glad we were referred to TOA! Their staff is extremely professional and kind. The doctors are wonderful and they took exceptional care of my daughter. I HIGHLY recommend Towson Orthopedics Associates!

Dr. Detterline, We did it! We got me to the bottom of the Grand Canyon – I am writing this from the campground near Phantom Ranch.

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!”

Dr. McCambridge is down to earth, knowledgeable, and excellent with children! She saw my 21 month old son for a fractured leg. She was extremely caring and easy to talk to. We had the best experience!
