George Kartalian, MD, has been practicing orthopaedic surgery since 1997, specializing in foot, ankle, knee, and lower extremity sports medicine. He currently sees patients at Town Center Orthopaedic Associates in Reston and Centreville, Virginia.

Dr. Kartalian recently relocated to Northern Virginia from Texas, where he served as a team physician for professional hockey and football teams. As a foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Kartalian treats a variety of problems, including flat feet, bunions, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and arthritic conditions. In addition to foot and ankle problems, he treats lower extremity disorders of the knee, hip, and lower leg.

He specializes in treating and preventing athletic injuries by emphasizing functional training and evaluating gait and shoe wear. When conservative therapies fail to relieve pain, Dr. Kartalian uses the latest surgical techniques, including arthroscopy and minimal incision surgery, to treat the problem.

He then moved to Chicago, Illinois, for his orthopaedic surgery residency at Northwestern University.

Dr. Kartalian, Thank you so much for taking care of me. While I was a new patient, I felt right at home with you and your staff. You are an excellent doctor – I really appreciated your professionalism, precision, conservatism, bedside manners, and your forthright manner. I never felt as though I was rushed when I came to visit you, and never felt that I had to be guarded as I sought to understand the procedures, prognosis, and rehabilitation. You are the best!
