If pain stops you from doing what you love, whether it's hitting the golf ball, jogging or taking a simple stroll, the physicians and specialists of the Orthopaedic Institute at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center (UM SJMC) know that's no way to live your life. We are proud to partner with Towson Orthopaedic Associates to provide superior orthopedic care.

More than 25,000 patients come to UM SJMC annually to see our orthopaedic specialists – travelling from across the country and around the world. They come for state-of-the-art care, surgical advancements, and the latest clinical trials.

The Orthopaedic Institute specializes in treating arthritis, joint and back pain and other debilitating orthopaedic conditions. In fact, we perform more joint replacement surgeries than any other hospital in Maryland. More experience means better outcomes.
