Patricia Turner M.D.

Dr. Turner joined Southern Maryland Orthopaedics in 2008. She was born and raised in Mount Rainier, Maryland. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. In addition to academics, she earned Varsity letters in Softball and Swimming. She continued her education in engineering at the University of Maryland, where she earned a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. She developed an interest in orthopaedic surgery as a result of her involvement in research conducted jointly by orthopaedic surgeons and engineers at the University of Maryland. She subsequently began her medical training at the Chicago Medical School. She completed her residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Maryland.

Following residency, Dr. Turner served six years as an orthopaedic surgeon with the US Navy. She has been stationed at multiple duty stations including Puerto Rico, Portsmouth, Virginia and Naples, Italy. She also deployed to Iraq with the US Marines in direct support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

After leaving the Navy, Dr. Turner was selected as a fellow in Adult Reconstruction at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. This fellowship allowed her to hone her skills in hip and knee replacements. She learned many innovative techniques including minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, computer navigated joint replacement surgery, hip resurfacing, and partial knee replacements. She also completed additional training in Foot and Ankle surgery during the fellowship.

Dr. Turner has been certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery since 2003. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. As do all the physicians of Southern Maryland Orthopaedics, Dr. Turner practices General Orthopaedics. She provides a full array of musculoskeletal care with emphasis on joint replacement surgery, foot and ankle reconstruction, and arthroscopic sports medicine.

Outside of her orthopaedic practice, Dr. Turner is happily married and the proud mother of two. She is an avid skier and golfer. She also enjoys sailing, kayaking and most other outdoor activities.
