Edward G. Magur, MDOrthopaedic Surgeon

Edward G. Magur, MD

Dr. Edward G. Magur, MD, is an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in conditions, injuries and disorders of the foot and ankle.

Dr. Magur's research interests include injuries of the foot and ankle in athletes. His approach to foot and ankle care is to evaluate the injury or condition, assess the patient's lifestyle and recommend appropriate treatment measures. When feasible, he recommends nonoperative measures such as medication, therapy, shoewear modifications and orthotics. Surgical discussions are generally reserved for conditions that fail to respond to appropriate conservative management.

Dr. Magur completed his foot and ankle fellowship with Dr. James Sammarco at the Center for Orthopedic Care in Cincinnati, Ohio and his orthopaedic surgery residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. He received his MD from Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y. and his BS from Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y.

Dr. Magur is currently the foot and ankle consultant for the Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, and the Washington Ballet. He is the former assistant team physician of the Washington Nationals.

Dr. Magur is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
