My wife was admitted post op and ended up with an extended stay due to high amounts of pain. Over the weekend, as docs cover for each other, Dr. Aguiar had rounds. He spent extra time addressing our questions and concerns and followed up several times over the weekend to see how things were going. We really appreciated his high level of care and genuine concern Which to me means even more as she wasn’t even his direct patient.

On time, professional, courteous, sincerely interested in resolving any issues. Dr. Aguiar is always friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him for total knee replacement surgery. My surgery and all follow ups were very successful. Thank you.

I needed a total knee replacement. I was looking for a doctor that used the robotic arm and specialized in knees only. Dr. Aguiar fit the bill. I work in the fitness industry where he is known for stellar work with better than average results. Prior to the surgery, I met with his PA who gave me a list of “To Do” items , explained everything on the list and gave contacts and phone numbers where to get everything done ( pre op appt, bloodwork, CT scan, post surgery PT...) It made things almost stress free. The day of surgery went well with no hiccups. They clearly have a very efficient system. I am 3 months out and almost perfect! I would definitely recommend Dr Aguiar, his team, the robotic arm and Reston Hospital. It was a great experience as far as surgeries go. God forbid, I need another knee replacement on the other knee, Dr. Aguiar would be my only choice.

There is not an orthopedic surgeon that I would trust more than Dr. Aguiar. He explains everything you need to know in terms the lay person can understand and takes the time you need. You definitely feel included in the decisions.

I hesitate to say anything about Dr. Aguiar so as not to compete for his utterly outstanding miracle services once the word is out. But for the benefit of humanity, I will. :-) In short: Dr Aguiar and the staff at OrthoVirginia have made it possible for me to do anything physical I want, from triathlons (several full Ironman) to skiing to horseback riding to climbing mountains. And for me, that means anything mentally, too. I’ve been going to him for nearly 20 years. His diagnoses, based on a wealth of knowledge and with 100% successful and immediate outcomes for me, are clear, fast, and accurate. His approach is conservative, aiming to keep us fully functional and pain-free with as little artifice as possible. He doesn’t let anything - age, ability, agility, gender - ever excuse us from being the fully active, athletic creatures we are possibly capable of being. His manner is kind, attentive, respectful, and discerning. Your well-being is all that matters to him.

I have seen Dr. Aguiar for around 10 months for a shoulder impingement issue that became frozen shoulder at a later stage. Dr. Aguiar diagnosis was spot on from day one and it was confirmed by the x-rays and MRIs. He recommended surgery for frozen shoulder for me after the physical therapy didn't help. I was initially very hesitant, but Dr. Aguiar's explained everything very calmly and also gave me an option of trying more physical therapy if I was not sure. I elected to go for the surgery in February 2020. Dr. Aguiar conducted the surgery and it went smoothly. He explained everything to me and my wife before and after the surgery. Now, a month and 10 physical therapy sessions later, I can see a sea of difference in my range of motion and pain is almost gone. I would like to thank Dr. Aguiar for his attentiveness and thoroughness. He has been awesome and I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

Arrogant, rude, misdiagnosed me and fat-shamed me by saying I need to "slim down." Females hear that more harshly than males, and there was absolutely no sensitivity or bedside manner whatsoever given. Office space was tiny, sterile, and a huge BMI chart was looming over my head as he bragged about his weight loss program. One of his biggest claims is he loves to get patients to return what they love to do, but in my case, he scared me to pieces, and misdiagnosed me. I was thrown into a weeklong depression til I saw another doctor who totally disagreed with him. He's not worth the hype, I don't care how "handsome" women think he is. I'll take balding and competent, and humble, any day of the week over this arrogant, smug doctor.

Dr Aguiar is to the point, professional, and clearly knowledgable.  Despite my significant discomfort, he was gentle but thorough.  He was confident in his evaluation and diagnosis, and complete in offering me the available options.  He and his staff are wonderful and very helpful.  I am beyond happy with the care and service I received.
