Kevin M. Kahn, M.D. is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with a sub-specialty interest in orthopaedic trauma. He completed two fellowships which provided him with advanced training in the surgical care and management of complex fractures and injuries to the musculoskeletal system as well as of the multiply-injured patient. He believes strongly in a team-oriented approach to the care of trauma patients at Southwest Washington Medical Center and works closely with general surgeons, plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, occupational and physical therapists, trauma case managers, and other medical specialists to provide coordinated comprehensive care for severely injured patients. He is a strident advocate not just for a patient’s surgical needs, but also for their rehabilitation, social, and personal needs. Dr. Kahn is an instructor and member of the AO North America Trauma Faculty.

In his spare time, Dr. Kahn enjoys hiking, camping, climbing, working out, snow skiing, and travel. He has a particular affinity for all things European, having lived in Sicily for five years.
