William G. Hamilton, MD

To contact Dr. Hamilton's office directly, please call (703) 619-4400.

Dr. Hamilton, a native of Ithaca, New York, is a fellowship trained specialist in the field of hip and knee reconstruction, and one of the leading joint replacement surgeons in the area. He frequently travels the country to lecture and consult on topics involving joint replacement, and he has several ongoing research studies in this area. Because his practice is focused on hip & knee replacement, he has a keen understanding of the intricacies and complexities involved in these surgeries. He was awarded the prestigious Insall Knee Society traveling fellowship, with visits to many of the leading centers for hip and knee replacement in North America.

In 2009, Dr Hamilton became the first surgeon in the Inova Health System to perform the anterior approach to total hip arthroplasty utilizing the specialized Hana table. This exciting muscle sparing approach offers the possibility of less postoperative pain and an accelerated recovery for today’s active patient population. 

Most importantly, listening to and getting to know his patients is his top priority. "A successful replacement is more than just knowing how to put the implants in correctly, it's anticipating and responding to the needs of your patient. I'm proud to be part of a practice and joint replacement center that strives to do this everyday."  Dr. Hamilton maintains involvement in several local and national societies, and recently completed his tenure as President of the Washington, D.C. Orthopaedic Society. Dr. Hamilton enjoys Golf, Running, Travel, and Guitar, but spends most of his leisure time with his wife, Beth, and playing with his 2 young boys and daughter. 

Dr. Hamilton is proud to be a team member of Operation Walk USA.  If you or someone you know is in need of a hip or knee replacement but do not qualify for government assistance programs and cannot afford surgery on your own, please visit the Operation Walk America webiste today.
