Dr. Tony Aram’s interest in a medical career began while attending college at the University of Florida, where he graduated with honors receiving a Bachelors Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Engineering. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Aram attended the University of Maryland – School of Medicine where he excelled and graduated Cum Laude. Following medical school, he spent five years at the University Pittsburgh Medical Center studying orthopaedic surgery. In his final year he reached the level of Chief Resident. Under the tutelage of leading surgeons in their fields, Dr. Aram became most proficient in surgeries of joint replacement, arthroscopy, and trauma reconstruction.
Dr. Aram entered private practice in Northern Virginia in 1997. Early on he provided care to the community as a trauma surgeon. This interest in reconstructive surgery naturally led to Dr. Aram toward treatments and procedures which aim to restore diseased and deformed joints. Dr. Aram strives to perform the perfect joint replacement. In pursuit of this quest he was an early adopter of minimal invasive surgery and computer-assisted navigation in Northern Virginia. He continues to employ these techniques and tools, looking for innovative ways to better care for his patients. He believes making incisions that minimize injury to soft tissue ultimately helps his patients recover quicker. Furthermore, using computer-assisted navigation, he can implant joints more accurately and thus improve the function and longevity of the joint replacement. Currently, Dr. Aram does perform research on knee and hip replacement surgery in an effort to improve on these procedures as well as remain on the leading edge of this field. Currently, he uses robotic technology to assist with knee and hip surgeries.
In his free time, Dr. Aram enjoys playing golf, skiing, and spending time with his wife and children. Additionally, Dr. Aram has a passion for participating in Medical Missions. Twice a year, accompanied by his wife, he travels to an impoverished area of the world to provide medical care to the less fortunate.
