About Me

Benjamin Diffenderfer is an orthopedic physician assistant who sees patients for a wide variety of injuries and ailments. He runs the Bone Health Program and Bone Health Clinic at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.

Among the conditions Ben treats are:

  • General orthopedic issues
  • Sports medicine injuries
  • Osteoporosis and secondary fracture prevention

Often, Ben treats patients for fractures. He strives to do more than just manage their fracture — he sincerely wants to find out why they suffered the fracture in the first place and help them prevent another one.

"I will investigate why you had a fracture, not just treat it and send you away," he says. "I include medicines, physical therapy and/or nutritional education in personalized treatment plans geared toward improving bone strength and minimizing fracture risk."

Ben has been managing orthopedic issues in the Harford County, Maryland, community for over a decade.
