Nirschl Orthopaedic Center
“At Nirschl Orthopaedic Center, we provide the highest quality of care, compassion and understanding. Experience matters.”
Since its founding in 1974, Nirschl Orthopaedic Center (NOC) has been consistently rated one of the top orthopaedic and sports medicine centers in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Their highly experienced board-certified physicians are at the forefront of treating disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle. Many have graduated from leading fellowship training programs and are regularly named as the area’s top doctors. NOC Founder Dr. Robert P. Nirschl is an internationally recognized pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic and sports injuries. The tradition of quality care and innovation originally instilled by Dr. Nirschl continues today with new treatments in hip preservation surgery, minimally invasive bunion correction and outpatient joint replacements.
At NOC and its Virginia Sports Medicine Institute physical therapy facilities (locations in Arlington and McLean), all patients are treated with uncompromising care, compassion and understanding. The physicians at the Nirschl Orthopaedic Center believe that physical rehabilitation is an integral part of a successful recovery plan. With this in mind, the physicians work closely with their physical therapy team to design an individualized program so that full recovery is achieved as quickly as possible.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or a “weekend warrior,” Drs. Matthew Buchanan, Robert Nirschl, Derek Ochiai, Ronald Paik, Cassie Root, Suzanne Walters and Clay Wellborn welcome the opportunity to participate in your care.
