Savyasachi “Savya” Thakkar, M.D., is a hip and knee reconstructive surgeon serving patients in the Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., metro areas. His expertise is in minimally invasive hip and knee surgery, including partial and total hip and knee replacement, outpatient joint replacement and complex revisions after previous joint replacement. Dr. Thakkar uses computer and robotic-assisted techniques for these procedures to provide cutting-edge care to patients with hip and knee arthritis.
Currently an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Thakkar completed his medical degree at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and stayed for his residency with the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. He was the first recipient of the Ronald P. Byank leadership award as a chief resident. He continued his training as a knee arthritis and traumatology fellow in Switzerland, followed by an adult reconstruction fellowship in New York. He then pursued the prestigious European Knee Society traveling fellowship focusing on advanced surgical techniques in the management of arthritis.
Dr. Thakkar’s research interests include technological advances in the treatment of arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, the economic impact of arthritis and the optimization of hospital protocols for arthritis management. He is also interested in exploring same-day joint replacement surgery to help patients minimize time in the hospital and maximize return to function.
