About Me

When Rafael was finally ready to address that hip pain, Dr. Yalamanchili and the Upper Chesapeake Specialty Group got him back to the activities he loves.

Learn how Dr. Yalamanchili and the Upper Chesapeake Orthopedic Specialty Group are getting people back to the activities they love.

An orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Raj Yalamanchili's practice focuses on hip and knee replacement and preservation, and he performs minimally invasive joint replacement as well as knee arthroscopy.

Specializing in joint replacement and preservation enables him to offer treatment that brings his patients relief from pain and the ability to return to their daily activities and hobbies they may not have been able to do for months or even years.

Dr. Yalamanchili is interested in robotic hip replacement and was the first surgeon in the state of Maryland to do Mako robotic hip replacement surgery using the anterior approach in 2013. He has performed the largest volume of Mako robotic hip replacements in Maryland as of June 2022. He believes that robotic surgery with computer navigation aids him in correctly sizing and placing implants, minimizing dislocation and restoring leg lengths accurately.

Dr. Yalamanchili 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. He was named a Top Doctor in orthopedic surgery by Baltimore magazine in 2017, 2020 and 2021.

He also serves as the director for joint replacement at the UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. He recognizes that each individual is unique and provides his patients with an individualized approach to care. He has presented and published research in peer-reviewed journals and national symposia and has won awards and scholarships for excellence in research and academics.

Dr. Yalamanchili is a graduate of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Seton Hall University/St. Joseph's Medical Center in New Jersey. He received fellowship training in joint replacement and preservation at Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.
