Philip D. Bobrow, M.D., F.A.C.S

Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon - General Orthopedics, Adult Reconstruction and Sports Medicine

Philip Bobrow MD

Dr. Bobrow has been in private practice since 1983. His particular interests are adult reconstructive surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder as well as sports medicine and general orthopedic surgery. Dr. Bobrow was one of the first in the Washington area to believe in a new multidisciplinary approach to joint replacement surgery. The combination of minimally invasive surgery, coupled with a more modern approach to pain management, has enabled an accelerated recovery with a rapid return to work and active life style.

Dr. Bobrow is one of an exclusive group of surgeons across the country specially trained on the more bone conserving procedures of minimally invasive (MIS) hip and knee surgery and partial knee replacements. Many patients with the new surgical techniques, coupled with an advanced pain management protocol, leave the hospital the next day. However, Dr. Bobrow's real expertise is his individual approach to patient care. Dr. Bobrow believes in customizing each individual’s plan of care to meet their needs. Although many leave the hospital within 24 hours, some individuals with complex medical issues need to stay a few extra days. Some patients may need a rehabilitation unit after their discharge. At Sibley Hospital this is all inclusive on the same campus and unique to the D.C. area.

Dr. Bobrow graduated from S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo School of Medicine. He completed an orthopedic residency at Georgetown University Hospital. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Bobrow is a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a Member of the Eastern Orthopedic Association, the American Medical Association and the Washington Orthopedic Society.

Dr. Bobrow is affiliated with Sibley Memorial Hospital, Suburban Hospital and Georgetown University Hospital. He is currently involved in the residency teaching program at George Washington University and is Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at Georgetown University Hospital. He was previously Team Physician for American University.

Dr. Bobrow has been cited in every "Outstanding Physician Specialist" issue of "Check Book Magazine" since 1998. He has been listed in every "Top Doctors in the Area," issue of The Washingtonian Magazine since 1993. In 2008, he was individually featured in the same Top Doctor’s issue from among the other physicians.

Born in New York City, Dr. Bobrow now lives in Maryland with his wife of over thirty years, Faith. He is the proud father of three daughters. In his spare time he enjoys hiking, biking, canoeing, gardening and swimming.
