Dr. Anthony Avery, a Northern Virginia native, received a BS in Chemistry from Villanova University and earned his medical degree from Georgetown University. He then completed five years of orthopedic surgery training including clinical training at Monmouth Medical Center, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Morristown Memorial Hospital. Dr. Avery went on to Brown University to complete a fellowship in sports medicine and arthroscopy. He specializes in sports-related injuries, shoulder and knee arthroscopy, adult and pediatric trauma and joint replacement, with an interest in minimally invasive procedures. He has been with OrthoVirginia since 2012 and he currently serves as the Orthopedic Trauma Program Director at Virginia Hospital Center.
Dr. Avery chose to specialize in orthopedic surgery because of the satisfaction he feels helping his patients recover from injury, regain mobility and return to the activities they enjoy. Playing a part in this very emotional and often life-changing experience is the most rewarding aspect of his work. During his residency and fellowship, Dr. Avery cared for a variety of athletes at Brown University. He also served as a physician for the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins. He continues that strong community involvement by providing medical expertise for local sports teams including Justice High School and assisting with the DC United soccer club system.
When Dr. Avery is not practicing orthopedic surgery, he loves spending time with his wife and two children as well as fishing, lacrosse, golf and scuba diving.
