One of the original specialty services (urology, orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, and radiology) organized at Johns Hopkins by the forefather of Hopkins’ surgery, William Stewart Halsted, in 1900, The Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has been caring for patients, fostering innovation, and nurturing orthopaedic leaders for over 110 years.
Our Baltimore experience has shaped aspects of orthopaedic surgery around the world. This renowned heritage continues to influence our clinic protocols, research discoveries, and our hands-on training of tomorrow’s physicians.
