Domenic Scalamogna, M.D., is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery with fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery. His practice encompasses a wide variety of orthopedic conditions to include general orthopedics, sports medicine, fracture care, and joint arthroplasty of the hip, knee and shoulder. Specific arthroplasty interests include custom total knee replacement as well as anterior total hip arthroplasty, also known as front hip replacement.
Joint replacement of the hip through the direct anterior approach offers patients several advantages as compared to other traditional surgical approaches. Apart from a more cosmetic skin incision, total hip replacement through the front of the joint preserves important hip muscles essential for ambulation while also eliminating post-operative restrictions resulting in a more expeditious post-operative recovery.
Following completion of his general surgery internship at the National Naval Medical Center in 2002, Dr. Scalamogna completed a course in Aviation Medicine in Pensacola, FL and subsequently served as a Naval Flight Surgeon for Carrier Air Wing ONE. He participated in Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom during a six-month deployment aboard the USS Enterprise (CNV-65). Following his tour as a Naval Flight Surgeon, Dr. Scalamogna entered his orthopedic residency in 2005 at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. While at Bethesda, his unique training encompassed the evaluation and treatment of complex extremity war wound reconstruction. After 12 years of active duty service, he completed his final tour in the United States Navy as a staff orthopedic surgeon at the Naval Hospital in Naples, Italy.
Dr. Scalamogna is fluent in Italian and welcomes Italian-speaking patients.
