Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

Stephen W. Pournaras, Jr., M.D.

As a specialist in the surgery of the hand, wrist and upper extremities, my practice is primarily focused on traumatic injuries including fractures, nerve problems, chronic conditions such as tendinitis, and arthritic conditions. I believe in a team-oriented approach to treatment, which often involves physical and occupational therapists to maximize functional outcome for all my patients.

By preforming operative and non-operative procedures, my goal is to use the latest and most minimally invasive techniques that allow my patients a rapid return to a full and active life.

What is important to us as a practice is superior patient outcomes and unmatched patient satisfaction. We pride ourselves in being patient advocates, going the extra mile to ensure that the care delivered to our patients is best of that medicine as to offer.

Dr. Pournaras is the best of the best. My wife is Pre Op RN for Inova and former ICU Nurse; nurses know the best selection when it comes to complex surgery. My hands have been operated on 5 times for dupuytren's contracture going back 20 years in my life. I am a retired Army COL and my last surgery was with Bethesda Naval Hospital; they were great but not as good as Dr. Pournaras! He has an excellent PT group associated with his organization and are also fantastic. If you want an awesome result, Dr. Pournaras is your answer. Highly recommend!

First time visiting the Office of Dr. Pounaras. I had the pleasure of meeting Physician Assistant Dr. David Park. Great service, I was treated with kindness and respect. You can see that Mr. Park really cares about his patients and their well-being. He took time to listen to my concerns and patiently explained the treatment to me. Dr. Pounaras must be very proud to have this excellent professional in his office

Dr. Pournaras is an excellent surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. A rare combination. I have had zero issues with my wrist and hand since he operated. I would recommend him to anyone who wants the best person available. I had surgery 8 or 9 years ago.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pournaras for many years. I have found him to be one who listens, is responsive and an excellent physician. Early in the pandemic I concluded, at the last minute, that it would be unwise to have elective surgery. He could well have charged me a late cancellation fee which he did not do. I would not hesitate to use him again, as I expect that I will do.
