The labrum is a piece of cartilage located on the outside rim of your hip joint that helps to keep the top of your thighbone positioned securely in the hip socket. When this piece of tissue tears, typically as a result of a sports injury, you may or may not observe any symptoms. In some cases, however, you may notice a locking, clicking, or catching feeling during movement, or there may be pain or stiffness that limits your mobility. Conservative methods, such as rest, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications, can often provide sufficient healing and relief. If these minimally invasive options don’t help, we can perform minimally invasive surgery to help you return to normal activity.

Great service, nice people! Dr. Mulliken did my hip replacement 3 months ago and am doing great!!!
Dr. Scott Tarantino is the best! He didn’t replace my knee, he fixed it. He did say I my need a replacement in the future, but I’m very happy with my surgery. Great surgery. Fell asleep, woke up, went home.… Doesn’t get any better than that! Great team! Read more “Great Knee Surgery”
Have been to Towson office for my own care, and for my children and extended family.
Courteous, helpful staff and physicians.
Prompt scheduling for emergencies.
Dr. Brodie did an amazing job on my [trimalleolar] ankle break. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a foot or ankle issue.
I recommend this place. Thanks to Dr. Brodie, and his helper’s for the foot surgery that he performed on me at St. Joseph Medical Center. Especially the wonderful staff at Towson orthopedics associates
Dr. Brodie performed surgery on my ankle 2 years ago. There was a couple of months of recuperation but after that period I feel like Superman again. Anyone want to race? I only do sprints.
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!!”
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.
Can not say enough about Dr McCambridge and staff and how great they took care of my 2 year old daughter today!! They were so great and even gave her baby doll a matching cast!! Thanks to everyone!!
I’ve had several surgeries by Drs [Wolock], Matthews, and Brodie. Great group of surgeons.
Dr. Detterline did a great job for my son Nathan. ACL surgery with patellar graft and meniscus repair.
Dr. Schroder is absolutely wonderful my knee replacement surgery went great no more pain when I need to get other knee done I will definitely go back to him
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”
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”

Great team for Orthopeadic needs. Had a complete left hip replacement and I’m completely pain free.
Dr. McCambridge was great with my daughter who fell and fractured her wrist and growth plate. Reliable and polite staff.
Had an appointment with Dr Marion. Can’t recommend him enough!
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. I appreciated that they took the time to talk to my daughter… and make her comfortable before they looked at her arm. It put her at ease and we were able to get a cast on with minimal distress. Thank you all so much! And thanks for putting up with all The Wiggles music! Read more “Amazing”
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.

I had Dr. Detterline for complete knee replacement surgery. I highly recommend him!! TOA is the “best”.
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 [Tarantino] was incredible and so honest! I tore my ACL and he recommended holding off on surgery because it was not a complete tear. He was confident it would get better without surgery and he was right! He did… not want me to waste my money on surgery and put my needs first. I highly recommend him! Very knowledgeable and trustworthy! Can’t get any better than that. Read more “Put My Needs First”

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 [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. Shiu] is really carin n a good dr
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.
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. Richard Winakur is professional, friendly, and is an expert at cortisone shots! What more could I ask for.

Dr Langhammer and Dr Defontes. Excellent in their field of orthopedics.
Everyone on staff has always been very helpful and so friendly.
The After hours staff is amazing here. Receptionist, techs and doctor are very welcoming, and friendly. Not a long wait at all.
Dr. Dalury did my right TKR in June and the left in July. I was back to work in two weeks. I am now three months and two months post op with 130 degree bend and zero and -1 extension.
… /> I cannot thank Dr. Dalury and his amazing, talented, compassionate staff enough for giving me my life back…I am 55 and was walking like I was 90.
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.
