Dr. Lloyd Cox founded Southern Maryland Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center in 1986 after completing 5 years of Orthopedic training at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Dr. Cox was recruited to Southern Maryland to bring state-of-art Orthopedic care to the community. He remains dedicated to that task to this day.
Spanning 29 years of continuous practice he has performed over 10,000 operations including 1700 total knee and hip replacements and 1,000 spine surgeries. He has treated countless pediatric and adult fractures and sports related injuries. He is a board certified Orthopedic surgeon.
Southern Maryland Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center, now the 26th division of the Centers for advanced Orthopedics, has 10 medical providers and over 35 supporting staff members. Together we have treated over 150,000 members of the Southern Maryland community. Dr. Cox has served as Chief of Surgery and as a member of the board at St. Mary's Hospital. He has served as team physician for the St. Mary's College Seahawks.
During his Orthopedic training at The University of North Carolina Dr. Cox developed a strong base in all aspects of Orthopedic care with special emphasis on sports medicine and the treatment of hip and knee disorders. In practice, I have a special interest in precision customized total knee replacements and in all aspects of accelerated recovery from joint replacement. I perform both partial and total knee replacements. I am an experienced in arthroscopic ACL repairs, meniscus surgery and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. I have extensive experience treating cervical and lumbar disc herniation and degenerative conditions of the spine including lumbar spinal stenosis.
I have a personal interest in wellness and a healthy lifestyle and am pursuing additional education in age management and functional medicine.
Dr. Cox has lived in Southern Maryland since 1973. He graduated from St Albans School for Boys in Washington DC in 1974 and played both varsity soccer and baseball for the school. From 1974 -1977 he attended Emory University in Atlanta for pre-med studies and was elected to the PHI Beta Kappa honor society as a Junior. He returned to Baltimore in 1977 and completed medical school at the University of Maryland where his interest in Orthopedics blossomed. At Maryland he graduated with honors and served as a tutor for fellow classmates.
He is an aviation buff. He "soloed" at age 16 and went on to earn a commercial pilots license with instrument and multiengine ratings. In helping to raise 3 daughters I have coached girl's middle school soccer teams and have attended countless high school sporting events.
