Dr. Thal is an orthopaedic surgeon, sub-specializing in sports medicine & arthroscopic surgery.

Raymond Thal, MD Retires from Clinical Orthopaedic Surgery Practice

After 30 years, I have decided to retire from my practice at Town Center Orthopaedic Associates as of August 31, 2020. As one of the founding partners, I am enormously proud of my time at the practice and have loved serving my patients and the greater Washington, DC community. I have many wonderful memories, including 8 years as the Head Team Orthopaedic Surgeon for the Washington Football Team (formerly Washington Redskins), from 2000-2008.

I have a passion for medical innovation, having invented numerous orthopaedic instruments and devices, including the world’s first knotless suture anchor. While I am leaving clinical practice, I remain committed to my continued participation in medical innovation in my new venture, Thal Innovations. In addition to my continued orthopaedic innovation activities, I will be advising medical companies & start-ups in their development of innovative products.
