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

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

Philip Bobrow MD

Dr. Philip Bobrow has been in private practice since 1983. He specializes in adult reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee, as well as sports medicine and general orthopedic surgery.

Dr. Bobrow has helped pioneer a multidisciplinary approach to joint replacement surgery in the Washington area. He is one of an exclusive group of surgeons across the country specially trained in the bone-conserving procedures of minimally invasive (MIS) hip and knee surgery as well as partial-knee replacements. These new surgical techniques, coupled with an advanced pain-management protocol, has enabled an accelerated recovery with rapid return to work and active life style. Many patients leave the hospital within 24 hours.

However, Dr. Bobrow's real expertise is his individual approach to patient care. He believes in customizing each patient’s plan of care to meet their needs. Although many leave the hospital the same day, some with complex medical issues need to stay a few extra days. Occasionally patients need a rehabilitation unit after their discharge. At Sibley Hospital this is all on the same campus, which is unique to the D.C. area.

In 2014 Dr. Bobrow was chosen as Physician of the Year by the Sibley Hospital Medical Association. He has been listed in every "Top Doctors in the Area" issue of The Washingtonian Magazine since 1993. In 2008 he was personally profiled in the magazine. Dr. Bobrow has been cited in every "Outstanding Physician Specialist" issue of Check Book Magazine since 1998. In 2014 he had more “positive mention” than any other Orthopedic Surgeon in the Washington area.

Dr. Bobrow’s approach to orthopedic surgery was featured in Sibley’s On Health Magazine in May 2014. The article profiles a patient who was able to return swiftly to an active lifestyle that included technical rock climbing after hip-replacement surgery.

Dr. Bobrow completed his orthopedic residency at Georgetown University Hospital after graduating from S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo School of Medicine. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He is also a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

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.

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