Nirschl Orthopedic Joint Replacement & Sports Medicine Center


Nirschl Orthopaedic Clinic (NOC) was one of the first orthopaedic practices in the United States to combine the most current treatment techniques with a state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility. Founder Robert P. Nirschl, M.D., through his research and contributions to medical literature, has been recognized both nationally and internationally as a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic and sports injuries.

NOC has been consistently rated one of the top orthopaedic and sports medicine centers in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Our physicians, with their extensive experience, are at the forefront of treating disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, and knee. Our physicians have graduated from accredited fellowship training programs for orthopaedic surgeons with a concentration, both clinically and surgically, on the treatment of injuries of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and hip.

The physicians at the Nirschl Orthopaedic Center believe that physical rehabilitation is an integral part of a successful recovery plan, whether it is the primary treatment or follows a surgical procedure. With this in mind, our physicians work closely with our physical therapists to help design an individual exercise programs for each patient, so that optimum recovery is achieved as quickly as possible.

At NOC, we treat all types of patients, from the professional to the recreational athlete. We also treat non-athletic injuries and geriatric patients, all with compassion, care, and understanding.

NOC developed the first Sportsmedicine fellowship program in orthopedics and family practice in the Washington D.C. area. NOC works closely with the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (Military Medical School) to offer sports medicine training programs for United States Military primary care physicians. In addition, we train visiting orthopaedic surgeons from around the world on our specific surgical procedures and protocols.

The tradition of NOC quality care and innovation continues today with refined sophistication involving hip arthroscopy and new techniques in joint replacement as well as, hand and knee surgeries.

NOC is conveniently located on the campus of the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Virginia and is just minutes away from Washington D.C. and Reagan National Airport.
