Kevin. Nayar, M.D., is a Harvard and Johns Hopkins–trained orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty training in hand/wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery. He offers specialized diagnostics, non-operative treatment, and surgery for a wide array of upper extremity conditions.
While originally from El Paso, Texas, Dr. Nayar received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Grinnell College in Iowa. He went on to earn his medical degree from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. He also completed his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Afterward, Dr. Nayar earned a spot in the Harvard Combined Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship, rotating at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s, and Boston’s Children's Hospital in Boston.
Dr. Nayar treats a wide variety of conditions, including, but not limited to: hand/wrist, elbow, and shoulder arthritis, trauma, joint replacement, and arthroscopy; peripheral nerve surgery; microsurgery; reconstruction; sports injuries; pediatrics; and general orthopedic trauma. He treats all of his patients as he would treat his own family and helps them arrive to highly personalized plans. As one who has taken care of several of his own family members following surgery, he understands how hard the process can be. Further, he always seeks the most contemporary care and practice for his patients by staying educated on current research trends and novel therapeutics. He has co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed journal articles and has presented over a hundred presentations, papers, and book chapters both at regional and national conferences, earning multiple awards of distinction in the process. Dr. Nayar also serves as a consultant reviewer for multiple orthopedic journals.
In his free time, Kevin loves traveling with his wife, a west-coast native, and exploring their new home in the Pacific Northwest. He enjoys cooking, hiking, tennis, golf, and basketball and has recently discovered a new found passion for amateur skiing and surfing.
