D. Andrew Parker, MD
Dr. Andrew Parker highlighted in February's Angie's List
Dr. Andrew Parker of the Reston office was highlighted in the February's Angie's List by his patient, Heidi, who said "During the visit, he discovered critical problems other doctors missed. He provided me with ample information about the surgical option to discuss with my husband. I contact his office when I made a decision and he reviewed the surgery step by step."

Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Dr. Andrew Parker was drawn to orthopaedics out of a desire to help people of all ages regain lost function and return to the activities or sports they enjoy. After earning a BS in Biology and Chemistry from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Dr. Parker returned to his hometown and graduated magna cum laude from medical school at the University of Louisville. He then moved to Chicago where he completed his internship and residency in orthopaedic surgery at Northwestern University. Dr. Parker concluded his formal medical education by completing a fellowship in sports medicine at the Baylor Sports Medicine Institute in Houston, Texas.
Fascinated by the technical aspects of his specialty, Dr. Parker likes the challenges of the ever-changing field of orthopaedics. He especially enjoys the doctor-patient relationships that he has developed because he feels most orthopaedic patients are “motivated and proactive about their recovery.” Dr. Parker’s special interest areas include cartilage restoration surgery, adolescent and adult sports medicine, primary and revision arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery, and shoulder joint replacement.
As an active and respected participant in many professional medical organizations, Dr. Parker has delivered numerous presentations and educational seminars at orthopaedic conferences around the country. Currently, Dr. Parker serves as a team physician for the Washington Redskins. He also has significant experience in the area of sports medicine having cared for athletes from the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, and Northwestern University. Additionally, he served as team physician for DC United and he served as assistant team physician for the Houston Texans, Houston Astros, and the University of Houston while doing his fellowship.
As a former collegiate athlete, Dr. Parker maintains a personal interest in athletics and physical fitness and especially enjoys basketball, racquetball, downhill skiing, cinema, and traveling.
Dr. Parker is a GREAT doctor. He is thorough, patient, kind and never makes you feel rushed. He spent a lot of time explaining my condition in a way that no other orthopedist I have seen has done. He also answered a ton of questions that I had during my office visit. Since then, he has even personally returned a call (rare these days) regarding needing to schedule surgery for my hip. It took me a long time to find someone that knows about FAI. Iâm truly relieved that I found a doctor who does. Not only that, but he really knows what he is talking about and can explain it very well. I wish I had found him a while ago and not wasted my time seeing other orthopedists who didnât give me half of the information that he has.
Dr. Parker is the BEST! We would not consider going to anyone else! He performed a labral tear repair on my son's hip a couple days ago. Dr. Parker treated us like we were his only patient. He explained in detail every aspect of the surgery. He brought us pictures after the surgery and spent a lot of time going over every detail of the surgery and recovery plan. My sons and husband are all very athletic and we would never think of going to anyone else after our experience with Dr. Parker!
