Bio

A native Washingtonian, Dr. Mark Hartley developed a love for sports at a young age.

Upon earning a BA from Princeton University and an MS from Georgetown University, Dr. Hartley received a medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. He then stayed on at Georgetown University Medical Center to complete both his surgical internship and orthopedic surgery residency. Before joining OrthoVirginia, Dr. Hartley served as Chief of the Total Joint Replacement Service at Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia, and also served as a Major and Orthopaedic Surgeon with the 350th Evacuation Hospital in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm.

His special interests include knee injuries, knee arthritis, knee replacement surgery, sports injuries, shoulder reconstruction and arthroscopic procedures. Particularly experienced with the latest in joint implants. Dr. Hartley has performed more than 2000 joint replacements, and a number of them have been minimally invasive hip and knee replacements.
