The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics is redefining the way musculoskeletal care is delivered across the region with locations throughout Maryland, DC, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Steven K. Neufeld, MD, is an orthopaedic surgeon, board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He founded the Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center (OFAC) in Falls Church, Virginia, where he specializes in total ankle replacement and orthopaedic surgery. The OFAC is the first comprehensive foot and ankle center in the Washington, DC, area with orthopaedic foot and ankle physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and podiatrists on staff.
An orthopedic specialist in the area for 22 years, Dr. Neufeld is a board-certified foot and ankle expert, and the first in the area to perform Minimally Invasive Bunion Corrections. He focuses his practice today on this area, and published the only US-based study on minimally invasive bunion surgery as well as chairing a national and international course on the procedure.
His technique offers smaller incisions, less pain and faster recoveries. It reduces scarring and swelling and can be done without general anesthesia. Named a "Top Doctor" in major publications, Dr. Neufeld is the go-to specialist in the area today for minimally invasive foot, ankle and bunion surgery. "It's a game-changer for my patients, with no cast or crutches needed, and walking and driving right away" says Dr. Neufeld.
Dr. Neufeld graduated from the University of Pittsburgh before attending medical school at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. He then went on to complete his orthopaedic surgery residency at Ohio State University in Columbus and a fellowship in foot and ankle orthopaedic surgery at Union Memorial in Baltimore.
Not ready to stop continuing his education and teaching after his university career ended, Dr. Neufeld is the founder and serves as the director of the fellowship at the Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center, and is the founder and director of the Inova Health Total Ankle Replacement Program. He is also a clinical professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, and a clinical instructor at Georgetown University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in Washington, DC. Dr. Neufeld holds an advanced certificate in total ankle replacement.
In addition to his surgery practice, Dr. Neufeld is active in both clinical and biomechanical research, holds patents and intellectual property on orthopedic implants and braces, and has published a number of articles in medical journals. He is a member of multiple professional associations including the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeons, Virginia Medical Society, Eastern Orthopaedic Association, and Arlington Medical Society. Dr. Neufeld is also a Fellow Member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
