About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon focused on upper extremities, Dr. Gilotra treats acute and chronic conditions of the shoulder and elbow. He also sees patients with orthopedic injuries in the emergency room.

"I became a surgeon because I love working with people and being on the move. A desk job was never for me. I enjoy interacting with patients and our health care teams, performing nuanced physical exams, and helping patients through surgical solutions," Dr. Gilotra says. "It's a wonder how much you can help people with your hands, and I'm glad I can use my knowledge and abilities to help make a difference in people's lives."

Procedures performed by Dr. Gilotra include:

  • Reverse shoulder replacement
  • Anatomic shoulder replacement
  • Revision shoulder replacement
  • Shoulder arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
  • Shoulder arthroscopic labral repair
  • Shoulder arthroscopic muscle transfer
  • Shoulder arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction
  • Shoulder and elbow fracture repair
  • Shoulder arthroscopic capsular release
  • Shoulder bone grafting for instability
  • Elbow arthroscopy
  • Distal biceps repair
  • Ulnar nerve release
  • Elbow ligament reconstruction

Dr. Gilotra and his team specialize in all types of procedures, from simple arthroscopic rotator cuff and labral repairs to shoulder replacements and complex fractures. They also perform multiple-revision surgeries. They perform several hundred procedures on the upper extremity each year and are experienced in traditional techniques as well as new ones.

"Honesty and transparency are important to me when treating each patient. If surgery is the best option for the patient, I will say so. But if an injection or physical therapy is a reasonable option, I will make that clear as well," Dr. Gilotra says. "My goal is to guide each patient to the best chance of a great outcome."

Dr. Gilotra is an associate member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Society (ASES) and active fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. In 2018, he and his team became the first and only institution in the Baltimore/DC area to receive the ASES Neer Award, the highest research award bestowed by the ASES.
