About Dr. Fleeter

Thomas Fleeter, MD, specializes in sports medicine and operative and non-operative procedures for arthritis of the hip and knee. At Town Center Orthopaedic Associates in Reston and Centreville, Virginia, his goal is to use the latest and most minimally invasive techniques when performing hip or knee replacement and knee or shoulder arthroscopic surgery to allow patients a rapid return to a full and active life.

Dr. Fleeter has been practicing orthopaedics since 1984 in Reston and Centreville. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, he earned his medical degree from Howard University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. Following graduation, he continued advanced training in orthopaedic surgery, completing his residency at The George Washington University in Washington, DC.

As an orthopaedic surgeon, his practice is focused on arthroscopic surgery and hip and knee replacement. This includes ACL reconstruction and knee arthroscopy and shoulder arthroscopic reconstruction. Additionally, he uses the most advanced techniques, including direct anterior approach hip replacement and rapid rehabilitation, to allow patients with hip and knee replacement an early return to work and exercise.

Serving as the team physician for South Lakes High School in Reston, medical director for the Reston Triathlon, and as a consultant to the US Figure Skating team, he takes great pleasure in working with young athletes and giving back to his community. As a result, he was selected as an “Outstanding Physician” by Washingtonian Magazine and Washington Checkbook Magazine. He has also been named “Best of Reston” by his peers.

In addition to his extensive community commitments, he enjoys cycling, playing golf, scuba diving, and spending time with his wife and three children.

    "Dr. Fleeter I wanted to thank you for giving me my mobility back for a full and active life. You replaced my hip in May 2016, and after a few months of rehabilitation, I was able to return to my fitness classes, golf, and most importantly, keep up with my grandkids. I really appreciate the calls leading up to my surgery in getting a handle on my blood issues."
