Accepting new patients

Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Dr. Andrew Parker was drawn to orthopaedics out of a desire to help people of all ages regain lost function and return to the activities or sports they enjoy. After earning a BS in Biology and Chemistry from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Dr. Parker returned to his hometown and graduated magna cum laude from medical school at the University of Louisville. He then moved to Chicago where he completed his internship and residency in orthopaedic surgery at Northwestern University. Dr. Parker concluded his formal medical education by completing a fellowship in sports medicine at the Baylor Sports Medicine Institute in Houston, Texas. Fascinated by the technical aspects of his specialty, Dr. Parker likes the challenges of the ever-changing field of orthopaedics. He especially enjoys the doctor-patient relationships that he has developed because he feels most orthopaedic patients are "motivated and proactive about their recovery." As an active and respected participant in many professional medical organizations, Dr. Parker has delivered numerous presentations and educational seminars at orthopaedic conferences around the country. Currently, Dr. Parker serves as a team physician for the Washington Redskins. He also has significant experience in the area of sports medicine having cared for athletes from the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, and Northwestern University. Additionally, he served as team physician for DC United and he served as assistant team physician for the Houston Texans, Houston Astros, and the University of Houston while doing his fellowship.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Parker! I had chronic hip pain for over five years and delayed seeing an orthopedic surgeon because I feared I would need surgery. Although I explored all options, I ultimately had a hip arthroscopy procedure done. Dr. Parker's bedside manner and expertise are the two reasons I chose him to be my surgeon. He treats you like a member of his family. My surgery went great and I just wrapped up PT - feeling better than ever!
in Bristow, VA |
Dr. Parker and his team can be counted on to get the job done right. The best orthopedic surgeon in the entire area. I have seen 7 orthopedic surgeons in the area over the past 5 years. In less than a month, Dr. Parker identified my issues and successfully treated. My surgeon for life!
in Aldie, VA |
I'd like to give Dr. Parker 20 stars. He demonstrates what all doctors should strive to be, highly skilled & confident yet personable and caring. I sustained a massive rotator cuff tear along with a biceps tendon tear that could have required a shoulder replacement but Dr. Parker successfully put me back together. I always felt like he genuinely cared about me as an individual and based treatment on what would offer the best outcome for my functional mobility in the future. Thanks!
in Fairfax, VA |
Dr. Parker has helped me since an injury in 2009. He correctly diagnosed me w/a sports hernia and handled both of my torn hip labrum's since that time. I genuinely wish he were my primary physician as he's that thorough and personable. I can't recommend him enough! You are in good, caring hands with Dr. Parker. The only issue is he spends so much time with each patient that he's typically running behind schedule. That's a great problem to have when it comes to your surgeon.
in Ashburn, VA |
Dr. Parker is compasionate and highly skilled surgeon. He has worked on my knee and is going to be working on my shoulder. I feel that I am in exceptional hands.
