Care Philosophy Text

Dr. James MacDonald joined the physician team at The Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center in August 2004. He has a fellowship in arthroplasty (total joint replacement) from the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Dr. MacDonald studied for his medical degree at the Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington D.C. in 1998. He moved up to Philadelphia to Temple University Hospital for post-graduate training, and completed his residency in orthopaedic training in 2003.  Dr. MacDonald is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and a member of the orthopaedic medical staff of Anne Arundel Medical Center.  Dr. MacDonald has had several research abstracts presented at national and state medical meetings. Further research and medical publications are on-going. Dr. Jim MacDonald performs more than 300 total knee replacements a year, six times more than almost every other knee surgeon in our area. And that, he told the News4 I-Team, is one of the reasons he thinks his patients have so few complications. The only thing I do is hip and knee replacements. The I-Team found Dr. MacDonald using ProPublica’s new “Surgeon Scorecard” website, which shows he has the lowest complication rate for knee replacement surgery in Maryland and Washington, D.C., - putting him in the top 2 percent in the nation.
