About Alvin J. Detterline, IVToggle accordion item
Dr. Alvin J. Detterline is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, specializing in sports medicine, arthroscopy (including knee, shoulder, and hip), and general orthopaedics. Dr. Detterline is a member of the University of Maryland Joint Network, a group of surgeons known for their advanced expertise and positive outcomes in total hip and knee replacement.
Dr. Detterline strongly believes in minimally invasive procedures utilizing the most up-to-date techniques to maximize patient recovery and minimize pain. Many procedures can be performed arthroscopically (through the use of small incisions and a camera instead of large open surgical wounds) which allow for a quicker recovery for many patients.
Dr. Detterline treats both common and complex conditions of the knee, hip, and shoulder. See below examples of the conditions he treats and procedures he performs.
Dr. Detterline grew up in northwest Indiana just outside Chicago. After completing his orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine training, he moved to Baltimore in 2008. He is an avid tennis player who also enjoys exercise, running, national parks, American history, and spending time with his wife and two young children.
