"Joint replacement is major event for a person that can dramatically improve their quality of life. While people tend to focus on the surgery, a person’s satisfaction with their joint replacement stems from the caring environment expressed by physician office, hospital, and rehabilitation staff. At Anderson Clinic it is not just about the surgery.”
Dr. Andy Engh represents the third generation of his family to practice at The Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic, which was founded by his grandfather in 1938. Dr. Engh specializes in joint replacement of the hip and knee, including complex revision surgery. He sees patients in our Arlington and Alexandria offices. He performs surgery at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital where he is the Director of the Inova Joint Replacement Center.
Dr. Engh is a member of The Hip Society which is an elite organization “dedicated to the advancement of knowledge relating to the hip joint”. He is a consultant reviewer for the Journal of Arthroplasty and the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (American edition), a Board of Orthopaedic Specialties Education Committee member, the Director of the Anderson Postgraduate Medical Education Foundation, and a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons as well as a previous board member there. He is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, having recertified twice in his more than 20 year career. Dr. Andy is committed to furthering the knowledge and techniques of hip and knee replacement. He has received multiple awards including: the John Charnley Award, three Lawrence D. Dorr Awards, the AAHKS Clinical Award, the James A. Rand Award, as well as the OREF CCJR Award. He has published over 80 articles. He speaks both nationally and internationally on topics regarding hip and knee replacement with focus on patient outcomes and analysis of implant function. In November of 2014, he was inducted into The Knee Society. The mission of The Knee Society is to promote outstanding care to patients with knee disorders through innovative research and education.
Dr. Engh has remained current in the rapidly changing healthcare environment. He has embraced minimally invasive hip and knee replacement and computer assisted techniques. He was one of the first doctors in the country to be trained and perform total hip resurfacing. According to Dr. Engh, "hip and knee replacements are two of the most successful operations in the history of medicine. I am constantly looking for ways to improve these procedures for the benefit of my patients."
Dr. Engh maintains an interest in sports. He likes to sail, bike ride, play tennis, and especially kite board. His wife is a lawyer in Washington, DC and they have two adult children.
