John T. Dearborn, MD

Co-Medical Director

Washington Hospital

John T. Dearborn, MD, joined the medical staff of Washington Hospital in 1997 after completing his fellowship training in joint replacement surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. He had previously earned two undergraduate degrees from Stanford University and his medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco. In 1999 he partnered with the Washington Hospital Healthcare System to build what has become one of the largest joint replacement programs in the country, while earning the highest outcomes marks from independent evaluators such as Healthgrades and Consumer Reports.  His leading role in the development of minimally invasive hip and knee replacement techniques attracts patients from the Western U.S. and beyond. His efficient yet compassionate approach to health care delivery has been documented in numerous news segments, articles and a recent book. Despite the attention his work has gained, he considers his greatest achievements to be his 28-year marriage to his wife Danielle and his two children Laurel and Noah.
