About me

Farhang Alaee, MD, is a fellowship trained, board-eligible total joint replacement and trauma surgeon at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center and Medstar Harbor Hospital. He specializes in hip and knee reconstruction.

Dr. Alaee is focused on treating variety of issues related to hip and knee arthroplasty, including: partial and total knee replacement, hip resurfacing and replacement, fractures around previous implants, infections, and revisions of failed prior hip and knee arthroplasty. He has a special interest in new technology including robotic assisted joint replacement. Another area of focus is treating traumatic injuries, and fractures of the extremities including complex fractures around the knee and the hip.

During his fellowship, at the world’s largest medical center in Houston, Texas, Dr. Alaee worked alongside of nationally renowned hip and knee reconstructive surgeons using the newest techniques in joint arthroplasty. He won several awards for his research, on topics ranging from gene therapy for bone repair to surgical technique for orthopaedic infections.

Dr. Alaee views his patients as a whole person, rather than as a single health condition needing repair. He works to ensure that his surgical patients are prepared appropriately for success by addressing their other health problems. Dr. Alaee will help coordinate their care, and his patients greatly value his counsel and advice.
