Baltimore’s New Comprehensive Center for Orthopaedics, Spine and Sports Medicine

August 7, 2017

Home to 26 Specialists, Advanced Imaging, and Rehab Opens Tuesday

COLUMBIA, Maryland (August 7, 2017)—MedStar Health is opening on Tuesday the Baltimore region’s premiere, comprehensive center for orthopaedics, spine and sports medicine. MedStar Health at Timonium, 2118 Greenspring Dr., is the new home to 26 physicians, with advanced radiology, ambulatory surgery, and specialized rehabilitation services on site.

Having all these services located together enables the care team to coordinate all the patient’s needs, streamlining appointments into one visit, including any diagnostic tests needed. Beyond convenience, it also means their doctor can easily consult with other specialists on site, which expedites diagnoses and treatment planning.

“This project serves as another demonstration of MedStar’s long-time commitment to making health care accessible where people live, work and play,” said Bob Gilbert, president of MedStar Ambulatory Services. “Currently, MedStar Health provides orthopaedic services in a number of different sites in the area. This unique approach to high-end specialized care epitomizes convenience, letting our patients get the care they need under one roof.”

MedStar Health at Timonium is the medical home for a number of professional teams and athletes including, the Baltimore Ravens, Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Brigade and the Maryland Jockey Club. Specialists practicing here also are team physicians to numerous area colleges and high schools including Towson University, Goucher College, Stevenson University, St. Paul’s School, and Notre Dame Preparatory.

Services at the new center include:

  • Orthopaedics: hip and knee; shoulder and elbow; foot and ankle, hand
  • Spine
  • Sports medicine
  • Physiatry
  • Pain management
  • Outpatient surgery
  • Rehabilitation

The 46,300 square-foot center has:

  • A 3T magnetic resonance image (MRI) scanner, along with X-ray and other diagnostics
  • 26 exam rooms designed specifically for orthopaedic and sports medicine physicians
  • Physical therapy and a state-of-the-art rehabilitation gym, and treatment area
  • Ambulatory surgery center, with two ORs and a procedure room (opening in late fall 2017)

United, U.S. Lacrosse, and 18 collegiate, and 34 high school teams.
