Steven J. Hospodar, MD

After earning his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia, Dr. Hospodar completed internships in general and orthopedic surgery, as well as an orthopedic surgery residency, all at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. A veteran of the United States Air Force, Dr. Hospodar's service included his position as Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, as well as a deployment to Afghanistan during which he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal. He is board certified in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.

Motivated to directly impact his community in a positive way, Dr. Hospodar chose to practice orthopedics to provide higher quality of life, improved function and less pain for his patients, whom he considers friends and neighbors. Medicine is personal for Dr. Hospodar, who believes that the extent of each patient's condition and its effect on his or her life is completely unique. His goal is to understand patients well enough to provide not only what they need at that particular time, but also to remain a source of long-term advice or treatment as things change over time.

Specializing in sports medicine and anterior hip replacements, Dr. Hospodar intends to remain a caring community orthopedic surgeon for decades to come.

Originally from Fairfax, Virginia, Dr. Hospodar fell in love with the Tidewater area while attending medical school in Richmond. He and his wife consider it a dream come true for their family to be part of the middle peninsula community, filled with personal, friendly people who love the outdoors, the water and having fun. Dr. Hospodar's favorite hobbies include crabbing, fishing and boating, and he is actively involved with high school athletics, Boy Scouts and other volunteer efforts.
