A native of Great Falls, Virginia Dr. Nitin Goyal attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia. He returned to his hometown after training in Philadelphia for more than 10 years.

Dr. Goyal completed his medical education at Jefferson medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he graduated at the top of his class and was elected into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society in his third year. He went on to complete his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the world-renowned Rothman Institute & Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. There he received the Everett J. Gordon award as the Chief Orthopaedic resident demonstrating the "most outstanding clinical and surgical achievement."

Dr. Goyal stayed on at The Rothman Institute to pursue specialized training in complex hip and knee reconstruction. His particular surgical interests include computer navigation for partial and total knee replacement, anterior approach for hip replacement, complex revision of failed hip and knee replacement, revision for infection and treatment of hip pain in the younger adult population. He is one of the only surgeons in the INOVA Health System performing the exciting muscle sparing direct anterior approach to total hip arthroplasty. This approach offers the possibility of less postoperative pain and an accelerated recovery with potentially reduced complications.

Dr. Goyal has published articles in several major Orthopaedic journals, presented at national meetings, co-authored several book chapters and is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. He is a co-editor of two textbooks concerning joint replacement and his specific research interests include improved management of postoperative pain following total joint arthroplasty, and the diagnosis and management of infection following total joint arthroplasty.

According to Dr. Goyal, "My foremost aspiration is to take care of each patient to the best of my ability and as if they were a part of my immediate family. I believe that a strong doctor-patient relationship, adherence to surgical principles, and a motivated patient will result in the best possible outcome." In his free time, he enjoys travel, exercise, and playing tennis, but he spends most of his leisure time with his wife Rachna and daughter Sarina.

Dr. Goyal 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.
