A pioneer in his field, he introduced many firsts in the Hampton Roads area, including the direct anterior approach to total hip replacement (Jiffy Hip) as well as robotic knee surgery (Makoplasty), both of which he has performed more cases than any other surgeon in the area.  He is constantly seeking new and innovative techniques including improved pain management and accelerated recovery protocols and comprehensive blood management programs to the area.

His expertise is widely recognized, lecturing both nationally and internationally and serving as a peer reviewer for journal articles.  In addition, Dr. Carter most recently completed his first book chapter on total hip replacement.  He is also recognized by his peers as "Top Doc" of Hampton Roads.  Dr. Carter is also a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS).  His leadership skills honed during his military service at Langley Air Force Base prepared him well in his roles as Chief of Surgery and Chief of Orthopaedics at Mary Immaculate Hospital.  In his off time, Dr. Carter enjoys ice hockey, golf, fishing, staying fit, traveling with his wife and spending time with his two children.  He is also an avid New England sports fan.
