Jeffrey Lovallo, MDJeffrey Lovallo, MD
Surgical Director

Dr. Lovallo performed Virginia's first reverse total shoulder replacement at Inova Alexandria Hospital a decade ago. A founding member of the Mid-Atlantic Shoulder and Elbow Society, he now shares his expertise with other surgeons. Dr. Lovallo performs 150 shoulder replacements each year, more than any other orthopedic surgeon in the DC metropolitan area.

Dr. Lovallo uses a unique infection prevention program. As a result, his patients have not experienced an infection from shoulder replacement since 2007. In addition to creating an educational video on total shoulder replacement, he travels nationwide teaching innovative shoulder replacement techniques. Dr. Lovallo also serves as a medical consultant to the Washington Redskins.
