I have special interests in preventing joint deterioration before surgical intervention, optimizing outcomes following joint arthroplasty, and the broad spectrum of simple to complex hip and knee conditions requiring arthroplasty or salvage procedures. In my practice, I give top priority to the physician–patient relationship and patient education. My goal is to build trust with my patients so they feel comfortable with me as their surgeon. I want to ensure people understand their diagnosis, as well as the necessary steps for the road to recovery. Among my many interests, I am proud to serve as the Diversity Officer for the Office of Medical Student Inclusion & Enrichment Programs. Serving as team physician for the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards was an exciting opportunity. I have a strong appreciation for fine arts and jazz, and enjoy spending time with my lovely wife and children.ResearchI have been selected to receive numerous surgical and research awards and honors including the distinguished Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. I am a member of both the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and have given national presentations and authored numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters.CredentialsSpecialtiesEducation2009MD | Howard University College of MedicinePost-doctoral Training & Residency08/01/2014 - 07/31/2015Fellowship in Orthopaedic Surgery at Rush University Medical Center Anesthesiology GME07/01/2010 - 06/30/2014Residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital07/01/2009 - 06/30/2010Internship in Orthopaedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins HospitalVIEW ALL expand_moreVideosplay_circle_filledRishi Balkissoon, MD, MPHClose WindowSchedule an appointment with Rishi Balkissoon, M.D., M.P.H.Please answer the following questions to help us find the right appointment for you.Important: If you believe that you have a medical or psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
