Bio

Dr. Ted Lambert is a native of Salisbury, Maryland and 1992 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering and played varsity basketball.  After medical school and orthopedic surgery residency training, Dr. Lambert completed a one-year fellowship in adult reconstructive surgery, specializing in hip and knee replacement, at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, which has repeatedly been named the #1 orthopedic hospital in the country.  Fellowship-trained surgeons have completed the highest level of training for joint replacement surgery.  Dr. Lambert is board-certified in both orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, and is a fellow of the prestigious American Academy of Hip and Knee Surgeons.

Prior to his retirement from active-duty in 2016, Dr. Lambert served in the military as a Navy doctor for over 20 years.  His military service included the following assignments:  Medical Officer-USS Trenton (LPD-14); Orthopedic Surgeon, Combat Logistics Battalion-8, Fallujah, Iraq, in support of Iraqi Freedom; and forward deployments to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  He was stationed at Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth, where he was head of the Adult Reconstructive Surgery Service for 11 years and taught the latest hip and knee replacement techniques to the next generation of orthopedic surgeons.  Dr. Lambert was chosen as Residency Teacher of the Year in 2014.

Since entering private practice, Dr. Lambert has focused on hip and knee replacement, and has performed more hip replacements than any other surgeon in Virginia Beach in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.  He specializes in both the medical and surgical treatment of hip and knee arthritis, including anterior total hip replacement and robotic-assisted total joint replacement.  Physical therapy and pain-management education are important tools Dr. Lambert utilizes to optimize his patients’ experiences and outcomes.  He has become an expert of robotic-assisted knee replacement WITHOUT using a tourniquet, a unique service he has made available at Virginia Beach General Hospital.  Over 1,000 patients have received an anterior total hip replacement by Dr. Lambert in the last 10 years and Dr. Lambert is continually evaluating the latest research regarding improving the patient experience.

Dr. Lambert has seen total joint replacement from both the surgeon’s viewpoint as well as from the viewpoint of his older relatives who have received total joint replacement surgeries.  It is the family member’s perspective which most informs Dr. Lambert’s understanding of a patient’s surgical experience, so he strives to treat each patient as he would want his family member to be treated.

Outside of work, Ted enjoys traveling, weight training and distance running with his wife, their adult daughters, family and friends.  His quest to qualify for the Boston Marathon helped him complete 7 marathons including the 2014 Boston.  He is a long-time fan of the Baltimore Orioles.
