Bio

Dr. Ted Lambert is a native of Salisbury, Maryland. In 1992, he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. He earned his medical degree from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth, Virginia. After 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 hospital in the country for orthopedics. Fellowship trained surgeons have completed the highest level of training for joint replacement surgery. He is board certified in orthopedic surgery.

Dr. Lambert served in the military as a Navy doctor for 20 years, prior to his retirement from active duty in 2016. His military service included the following assignments: Medical Officer-USS Trenton (LPD-14); Orthopaedic 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 where he taught the latest hip and knee replacement techniques to the next generation of orthopedic surgeons.

Since entering private practice, Dr. Lambert has primarily focused his surgical practice on knee and hip replacement. He is a fellow of the prestigious American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS). Dr. Lambert performed more hip replacements than any other surgeon in Virginia Beach in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
