Dr. Carter is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in minimally-invasive, tissue-sparing Total Joint Replacements. Dr. Carter instructs nationally and internationally on total hip replacements using the muscle sparing anterior approach. He was the first orthopaedic surgeon to perform the “Jiffy Hip” in Virginia.
