About Alireza Malekzadeh, MD

Dr. Stephen Malekzadeh is a specialty care physician board certified in orthopedic surgery. He has been a surgeon with Inova Medical Group for the past 8 years specializing in management of fractures, nonunions, malunions, deformity correction, pelvis and acetabular fractures/injuries, infections, and hip and knee joint replacement surgery.

Dr. Malekzadeh has been active in research, publications and teaching. Notably, he has co-authored a chapter on pelvic fracture surgery in a leading orthopedic surgery textbook. He has also contributed to numerous publications in leading orthopedic medical journals. He is active in resident and medical student education and has served as faculty on educational courses for other orthopedic surgeons both locally and nationally.

Dr. Malekzadeh became interested in orthopedic surgery because of the opportunity it provides to directly and immediately help those who have been affected by a life altering condition or injury. His ultimate goal and passion is to not only surgically address the issue at hand, but to help the patient and family through their difficult ordeal in the long-term.

A native of Rockville, Maryland, Dr. Malekzadeh currently resides in suburban Northern Virginia with his wife and children. In his spare time he likes to coach his children's various sports teams, restore classic automobiles, and play ice hockey, basketball and soccer.
