Dr. Manson received his medical degree from Northwestern University School of Medicine and completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He pursued an additional year of advanced training in the management of complex fractures at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. He followed with an additional one-year fellowship in total joint replacement at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, where he trained in minimally invasive joint replacement, revision joint replacement and hip and knee surgery.

Dr. Manson has two clinical practices: joint replacement and orthopedic trauma. He is an orthopedic trauma surgeon at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and cares for patients with complex fractures and multi-system trauma.

In addition to performing surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center in downtown Baltimore, Dr. Manson operates at UM St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Towson, Maryland, primarily for patients requiring hip or knee replacement. He cares for patients from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia who are referred for complex fractures or infections around existing hip and knee replacements and directs the Maryland Statewide Referral System for these patients.

Dr. Manson's clinical and research interests include pelvic and acetabular fracture management, fracture nonunion and joint replacement. His particular joint replacement interests are direct anterior hip replacement and joint replacement after previous fracture.

He is a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the Orthopaedic Trauma Association.
