About the Provider

Brent B. Wiesel, MD, is board certified in orthopaedic surgery and specializes in shoulder and elbow surgery for adolescents and adults. In addition to traditional open surgery, he has expertise in the latest techniques including minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and reverse shoulder replacement.

Dr. Wiesel is chief of the shoulder service at the MedStar Georgetown Orthopaedic Institute, and he performs surgery at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

Dr. Wiesel developed his interest in shoulder disorders after injuring his shoulder preparing for the 1996 Olympics as a member of the USA Canoe/Kayak whitewater slalom team. His injury and subsequent two surgeries prevented him from competing in the Olympics, but he returned to the sport recreationally and went on to medical school and residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He had additional training in shoulder and elbow surgery at the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia.

As part of the shoulder service team, Dr. Wiesel is also involved in research on advancing treatment for shoulder and elbow disorders.
