Nirschl Orthopaedic Center

Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine

Since its founding in 1974, the Nirschl Orthopaedic Center (NOC) has been consistently rated one of the top orthopaedic and sports medicine centers in the Washington metropolitan area. Our board certified physicians, with their extensive experience, are at the forefront of treating disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip and knee. Many have graduated from leading fellowship training programs. The tradition of quality care and innovation originally instilled by our founder, Dr. Robert P. Nirschl, continues today with new treatments in hip arthroscopy, minimally invasive and rapid recovery joint replacement and regenerative medicine (PRP and stem cells).

At NOC and our state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility, Virginia Sports Medicine Institute, we treat all of our patients, including professional and recreational athletes, those with non-athletic injuries, children as well as adults, with uncompromising care, compassion and understanding.

Drs. Eric Guidi, Derek Ochiai, Ronald Paik, Cassie Root and Clay Wellborn welcome the opportunity to participate in your care. In medicine, Experience Matters.
