Dr. March was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Bethesda, MD. He completed his undergraduate studies at Tufts University where he majored in psychology. He attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine where he graduated in the top of his class and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He completed his residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He then undertook fellowship in Hip and Knee Reconstruction at the Norton Orthopaedic Institute in Louisville, Kentucky. There, he trained with internationally recognized experts in the direct anterior approach for total hip replacement.
As a joint reconstruction specialist, Dr. March focuses his practice on the treatment of arthritis and complex problems of the hip and knee. He has particular interests in anterior approach hip replacement, total and partial knee replacement, and revision surgery for failed joint replacements. Compared to traditional hip replacement techniques, the more modern anterior approach allows the surgery to be performed without cutting muscle, enabling patients to recover faster and with less pain. Dr. March believes in a patient-centered approach to care. His treatment philosophy emphasizes cultivating an alliance between doctor and patient to work toward improved recovery and better outcomes after surgery.
Dr. March first moved to Pittsburgh for his residency training, but quickly fell in love with the city and is proud to call it his home. When not working, his interests include cooking, exploring the Pittsburgh restaurant scene, fitness, cycling, and hiking in America’s beautiful national parks. While attending medical school, Dr. March met his classmate and future wife, Christine, a pediatric endocrinologist at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
