Alvin J. Detterline, M.D.

Average Rating: 4.7 stars (based on 50 ratings)

Dr. Alvin J. Detterline is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, specializing in sports medicine, arthroscopy (including knee, shoulder, and hip), and general orthopaedics.

Dr. Detterline strongly believes in minimally invasive procedures utilizing the most up-to-date techniques to maximize patient recovery and minimize pain. Many procedures can be performed arthroscopically (through the use of small incisions and a camera instead of large open surgical wounds) which allow for a quicker recovery for many patients.

Dr. Detterline grew up in northwest Indiana just outside Chicago. After completing his orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine training, he moved to Baltimore in 2008. He is an avid tennis player who also enjoys exercising, running, national parks, American history, and spending time with his wife and two young children.
