Dr. Zahir offers care and treatment for foot/ankle, general orthopedics, hand/wrist, hip/knee, pediatrics, shoulder/elbow, spine, sports medicine and trauma.

No stranger to St. Mary’s County or to MedStar St. Mary’s, Dr. Zahir attended Father Andrew White and St. Mary’s Ryken High School in Leonardtown, Maryland, before heading to the University of Maryland in College Park for his undergraduate degree. He earned his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. As a fellowship trained spinal surgeon, Dr. Zahir completed medical training at the University of Maryland Medical Center with rotations at the Baltimore VA Medical Center and the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

As part of the MedStar Georgetown Orthopaedic Institute, Dr. Zahir has the full resources and collaboration of other orthopedic specialists as well as the facilities of MedStar St. Mary’s. This is a win-win for Southern Maryland patients. Our community has the services and convenience here at home with the additional resources, if needed, of the MedStar system. Dr. Zahir will be able to perform surgeries at Georgetown as well, if needed.
