Dr. Lane's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lane "Dr. Edward Lane grew up making rounds with his father, an orthopaedic surgeon in Northern Virginia. By the time he was a teenager, he was well aware of his own interest in orthopaedic surgery. After working at the Veterans Hospital in high school and in the emergency room during his college days at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, Dr. Lane went on to earn his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. He then completed his internship and orthopaedic surgery residency at Georgetown University Medical Center. Dr. Lane had the privilege of watching the first total hip and knee replacement surgeries done in Northern Virginia when they were performed by his father at Inova Fairfax Hospital. Following eighteen years of orthopaedic practice alongside his father in Falls Church, Dr. Lane joined OrthoVirginia in 2001. Having been involved in the advent of arthroscopic surgery during his residency, Dr. Lane helped to develop some of the early arthroscopic equipment and continues to dedicate a large part of his practice to sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery still today."

Patient Comments (4)

I think he is a really nice guy but not very knowledgeable about the spine. I called to schedule an appointment with a spine surgeon and was told he is a spine surgeon. That may be true but if you have a spine disorder you should look for spine specialist not a general orthopedic surgeon. If you...more
