David F. Dalury, MD

Clinical Professor of Orthopaedics at University of Maryland School of Medicine

"Seeing the difference a joint replacement can make in a patient's life is very rewarding." I was drawn to orthopaedic surgery because I liked the idea of providing care for correctable problems. It's great to be able to get people up and moving again.

I graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and did my fellowship at the Harvard Hospitals, where I trained in total joint replacement. I'm a clinical Professor of orthopaedic surgery at University of Maryland Medicine, an Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University, and Chief of Orthopaedics at UM SJMC.

Brian D. Mulliken, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics at University of Maryland School of Medicine

"The more involved and motivated the patient, the better the outcome." I've been practicing at UM SJMC for 20 years now, and have even been a patient there. For those reasons, I can say confidently that this is the best joint replacement center around. They possess the most compassionate and hard-working staff I've ever encountered.

After graduating from the University of Illinois, I received my M.D. from Johns Hopkins Medical School. I then completed post-graduate surgical training at the University of Iowa and the University of Western Ontario. For more information on this doctor, click here.

Scott J. Tarantino, MD

"I like helping people resume the life they want to lead." I try to educate my patients as much as I can, because if they understand the logic behind the treatment, they are more willing to participate, which leads to better outcomes. And it gets them back in action.

I'm the Medical Director of the Orthopaedic Institute at UM SJMC. I received my M.D. from Cornell University Medical College. My surgical training was performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, one of the top orthopaedics hospitals in the U.S. I specialize in hip and knee replacements, sports medicine, and fractures.For more information on this doctor, click here.

David T. Schroder, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics at University of Maryland School of Medicine

"The better we collaborate, the better the outcome." After practicing in the US Navy I wanted a practice with an outstanding reputation and excellent leadership. I found both with Towson Orthopaedic Associates. Truth is, I've never worked at a better hospital than UM SJMC.

I'm a graduate of the US Naval Academy and Georgetown University School of Medicine, and trained in orthopaedic surgery at Naval Medical Center San Diego. I chose joint arthroplasty as a specialty because it provides the opportunity to greatly improve the patient's sense of well-being. For more information on this doctor, click here.

Richard D. Winakur, MD

"Effective medical care requires a partnership between the physician and the patient." I joined Towson Orthopaedic Associates because of their stellar reputation. The operating room, nursing staff, and physical therapists have enabled the joint replacement center at UM SJMC to excel in all areas of patient care.

Prior to obtaining my M.D. from University of Maryland School of Medicine, I received my B.A. in Biology from Harvard. My post-graduate activities included orthopaedic surgical training at University of Maryland Hospital, and fellowship training in sports medicine at University of Pennsylvania Health System.

E. Craig Matthews, MD

"Education can help patients have less fear and a better understanding of their condition and recommended therapies." The best thing about practicing orthopaedics is the immediate impact you can have. The ability to relieve painful conditions and improve a person’s comfort, functionality, and quality of life really made choosing the path of orthopaedics an easy one for me.

I had the honor of receiving my M.D. and undergraduate degrees from the University of Western Ontario. Afterwards I completed my residency and fellowship training in arthroscopy and sports medicine at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. For more information on this doctor, click here.

Brian Shiu, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine

“We will work together every step of the way to return your quality of life in the safest, most effective way.” Having spent time at many of the hospitals in the region, I ultimately chose UM SJMC to take care of my patients. From the moment you walk through the door until your final office visit, our experienced team will be there for you.

As a native of Maryland, I earned my M.D. and completed my orthopaedic surgery training at University of Maryland. I was then selected for advanced training at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City. For more information on this doctor, click here.
