Planning your trip to the Nation’s Capital

Patients from all over the world make their way to the Nation’s Capital every year to seek Dr. Wolff’s expertise. Regardless of your location, Dr. Wolff and his staff are committed to making your experience as stress-free as possible. In order to provide you with the best care, you should expect that Dr. Wolff will need to see you in person at some point to determine the best treatment plan, but there are many things we can do ahead of time to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible.

Below you can find our comprehensive guide to seeing Dr. Wolff in Washington D.C.

Getting Started

First, you will need to contact Dr. Wolff’s assistant. Please fill out our New Patient Form. In addition to filling out the information requested for the form, you should also include:

Background on your injury

Where you will be traveling from and any issues we should know about ahead of time.

How you found Dr. Wolff, if not by a referring physician.

A brief health history and timeline of injury.

After you have submitted your request,  Dr. Wolff’s medical assistant will reach out to get you scheduled and coordinate the transfer of your medical records.

Keep in mind,  many patients have seen other physicians have had imaging studies prior to reaching out. Dr. Wolff will review your studies and your history and symptoms to make sure that you are a candidate for arthroscopic hip surgery and formulate a tentative plan to fix your hip. We can then plan a visit with Dr. Wolff in the office to refine the plan to confirm and then proceed with surgery the following day if appropriate.

We make sure that your local therapist will have the appropriate protocol and contact information for Dr. Wolff to help streamline communication and post-operative/recovery concerns.
