Total Joint Replacement (Hip, Knee and Shoulder)
Dr. Ferrero spent his first 4 years of orthopedic practice as a Major in the United States Air Force. After leaving the Air Force, he went into private practice in Charlotte North Carolina. In 2003 Dr. Ferrero and his family relocated to La Plata, his wife’s home town. Dr. Ferrero’s father in law, Dr. Henry Burke, retired in 2005. Dr. Ferrero opened his own practice in Dr. Burke’s old office in La Plata on January 1, 2006. The practice quickly outgrew Dr. Burke’s old office and he moved into a new office building on Washington Avenue in La Plata on January 26, 2009. Dr. Ferrero is pleased to be able to provide service to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, local schools and the community.
