Dr Winakur was my ortho surgeon 7 years ago after I sustained an injury which required a metal plate be afixed to hold my broken collarbone together. It was a severe break, in fact it was broken completely in half… and overlapping. Dr Winakur operated and fixed that problem and for that I am truly grateful. Fast forward to this past week…as fate would have it, I sustained another similar serious injury. This time, I knew exactly who to call. Thank you Dr Winakur, I already know I’m in good hands again moving forward. Read more “I Know I’m in Good Hands”
This is not my first time with Dr Winakur.I think he is an exceptional Dr and I have had no problems since being with him and the other staff.I have referred patients to him and will continue to do so.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Winakar since 2009. He is a good listener and takes time to explain things and answer questions. I very satisfied with the care I’ve received.
Excellent communication skills! Dr Winakur is the best of the best! Efficient engaging office staff ! kudos to the whole team !!
Dr Winakur performed arthroscopic knee surgery in March and the whole experience from initial appointment, to surgery, to post recovery was great. They were fast & efficient with my time, but slowed down when it came time to discuss my… knee, the options, and what I would be going through. My knee hasn’t felt this good in decades! Thank you.

I have only had experience with one doctor here, Dr. Winakur, but the experience has involved several surgeries and has been excellent. Definitely my “go to” for any type of orthopedic issue.
It has been one year now since you performed my bilateral knee surgery, so it seems appropriate to celebrate this anniversary by telling you what a superb result you made possible – along with the one month inpatient physical therapy… @ Bonnie Blink. I was able to play tennis (albeit doubles) in eight weeks and a range of mobility that I had twenty years ago! Also due to your skill my scars are barely noticeable. So Thank You!

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”
Amazing and kind doctor. Surgically repaired my daughter’s clavicle after explaining all the options. Highly recommend!
Dr. Winakur was amazing ! He was caring and honest about what to expect with total knee replacement. The reception area girls were both so kind each time I had an appointment. The office staff could use help in being… nicer to patients. Read more “Amazing!”

Dr. Winakur: I want to thank you and your medical staff for how I was treated the day of my knee surgery. When they were going to do anything they would explain to me first. They treated me like a… person and not an object. PS My knee feels great! Read more “My Knee Feels Great!”
