Recommend for Total Knee Replacement

Alvin J. Detterline, MD. was very professional. Checked to make sure I had any questions before my surgery that he could answer. Explained what it was going to be like after the surgery. He did not sugarcoat it. He told me that success is going to be up to me and the amount of work I put into it will make all the difference. I would recommend Alvin J. Detterline if you need a total knee replacement done. Thank you Towson Orthopedic Associates.

Best Orthopaedic Surgeon

My son had a Femoroacetabular Imingement or FAI, and we had a consultation w/Dr. Detterline. Dr. Detterline was always so confident and thorough with his information, he has a ton of experience, including with younger patients, and I would not go anywhere else. My son had a lot of hesitation with the surgery and he just told us he’s better than ever before. With the right PT, time to heal, and the right surgeon, the outcome is phenomenal. THANK YOU! Dr. Detterline. My only feedback was the communication and follow up from the office staff. That was less than ideal, but in no way is a reflection on Dr. Detterline.

I am always treated with dignity and respect by all the people who assist me at this office. They are friendly and courteous to me and ensure that I am safely moved about during my appointments. My surgeon, Dr. Detterline, was excellent. He did an outstanding job on my surgery. He also did an outstanding job of follow-up to ensure that my hip had properly healed. I would highly recommend Dr. Detterline and his staff!
