“Pain and injury should never stop you from living your best life,” says Dr. James Gilbert. “You don’t have to be an athlete to remain active.”

A board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, Dr. Gilbert performs orthopedic surgeries and regenerative medicine treatments. An expert in treating ACL injuries, meniscal tears, rotator cuff tears, elbow, foot and ankle injuries, and neck and back pain, he specializes in ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repair, shoulder and knee arthroplasty, and cartilage and meniscal surgeries. Avoiding surgery is a major goal as he teaches patients about the link between a healthy lifestyle and avoiding injury.

Dr. Gilbert grew up in Montgomery County and attended Landon School, Amherst College, Princeton University and Georgetown School of Medicine. Dr. Gilbert completed his orthopedic residency at Duke University. He’s been head team physician for the DC United, Washington Freedom and Spirit soccer teams, and assistant physician and consultant for Duke Sports Medicine, the Dallas Cowboys, Professional Bull Riders and Special Olympics.
