Professional statement

Dr. Kartalian has been practicing orthopaedic surgery since 1997 with a specialization in foot, ankle, knee and lower extremity sports medicine. He recently relocated to Northern Virginia from Texas where he served as team physician for professional hockey and arena football teams.

Dr. Kartalian showed me on x-ray what was wrong with my ankle and explained exactly what was going on so I could understand it. He explained conservative treatment and last resort treatment if conservative measures don't work. He was extremelythorough and informative. He ordered medicine and equipment that will help relieve pain and increase my mobility.

He is an amazing surgeon. I was off pain meds 36 hours after I had arthroscopic surgery for a severely torn meniscus. He knows his stuff.
