After graduating from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia, Dr. Goyal embarked upon college and his medical education to become a top orthopedic surgeon.
Dr. Goyal attended the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, graduating at the top of his class and becoming elected into the distinguished Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society during his third year. He continued his training with a residency in orthopedic surgery at the prestigious Rothman Institute and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. He was appointed as the Chief Orthopedic Resident, and received the Everett J. Gordon award for displaying “the most outstanding clinical and surgical achievement.”
After completing his residency, Dr. Goyal remained at the Rothman Institute to receive specialized training in reconstruction of the hip and knee. During this time, he developed specific surgical interests, including direct anterior approach hip replacement, complex revision of failed knee and hip replacement, treatment of hip pain in young adults, and partial and total knee replacement using computer navigation. Because he pursued these interests, he is now one of the only doctors in the Inova Health System who can deliver the muscle-sparing direct anterior approach to total hip replacement. This exciting procedure offers shortened recovery times and reduced complications.
