He is responsible for the training at Fairfax Hospital of orthopaedic residents rotating from 3 residency programs (Georgetown, George Washington, and US Army Residency Program).
Dr Malka performed the first Total Knee Replacement performed at Fairfax Hospital. He first performed Total Hip Replacements in 1965 in Switzerland, years before the first such operations in the US. He was one of the early users of Arthroscopy to evaluate knee injuries. In 1992 he founded the Joint Replacement Center at Fairfax Hospital. Since 1991 and every year since, he is included in the Washingtonian's list of "TOP DOCTORS" for the area.
Dr Malka participates in multiple Continuing Medical Education courses and activities in a persistent attempt to remain up to date with the latest advances in Orthopaedics. As Chief of Orthopaedics at Fairfax Hospital, he has set up and is the program director of multiple continuing education courses attended by orthopaedic surgeons from all over the area.
Dr Malka grew up in Geneva, Switzerland and first came to the USA in 1963. His wife, Susan is from Philadelphia and they have 4 daughters (a true specialist!).

Dr Malka is very concerned about the rising cost of medical care and tries very hard to avoid unnecessary tests and procedures whenever safe to do so.
To assist our elderly patients further, we accept Medicare as payment in full except for the deductible that we are required by law to ask you to pay.
To keep billing costs and our fees as low as possible we ask that you pay for office services and/or co-pay required by your insurance plan at the time of service (Visa/MC accepted). We will be glad to wait up to 6 weeks for insurance payments on surgical and fracture fees in excess of $200. However, except for HMO and similar plans, responsibility for payment is the patient's and payment arrangements, where necessary, must be made between our office and the patient. We will be happy to discuss any questions you may have, or give you any possible assistance in this area.
