Dr. Jacobs' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jacobs "I have been in the practice of orthopedics for 30 years. The only priority in my life has been to do whatever is in the best interest of my patients. That includes non-operative care, surgical procedures and post-operative care. All are equally important. For the entirety of my career I have been part of the faculty of the Johns Hopkins University Department of Orthopedics. That speaks directly to my commitment to excellence and my commitment to teaching. I have also lectured and performed surgery across the globe and specifically in Europe, Asia and South America. That experience has included working with the medical missionary group Operation Walk where we aided the disadvantaged in both Peru and Ecuador. I am fortunate in that I have had the benefit of a fantastic education at the college, medical school and fellowship levels. I am proud that I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, the Alpha Omega Alpha Honorary Medical School Society and American Orthopedic Association. I am also very proud of the fact that I am also the Team Orthopedist for the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. On a daily basis I strive to apply what I have learned over the past 30 years to improve the lives of my patients."

I consider patient Satisfaction Scores a very important part of improving the quality of my care. It is important incorporate changes that relate to the care and behavior of my office staff, the hospital staff, or my direct care and interactions with our patients.

Dr. Jacobs has replaced both of my hip joints. Total hip replacement of left hip June 2017 and total hip replacement of right hip April 2018. Both experiences were remarkable and recovery was quick. Dr. Jacobs does sterling work and should be your first option if you need a hip replacement.

Meeting and scheduling with Dr Jacobs is very easy. I did it from Harpers Ferry WV. The staff form the Hospital to the Office were very helpful and answered every question no matter what. For my family and friends I would only suggest Dr Jacobs for total double hip replacement.
