About John B. Powell MD

Dr. Powell has practiced with St. Charles Orthopedic Surgery for 28 years. He has continued to pass rigorous standards required to maintain certification by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He is proud to be a member of an independent medical practice that allows him to provide top quality care in a cost-effective manner.

Dr. Powell specializes in knee, hip, and shoulder conditions, offering non-operative and operative treatment options. He has vast experience in performing numerous operations utilizing the latest techniques.

Dr. Powell has enjoyed living in St. Charles County since he started his practice in 1988. When his children were young, he enjoyed coaching their athletic teams, but now spends his free time on the golf course or on his bicycle.

As a former intercollegiate swimmer, Dr. Powell knows the importance of staying active, and encourages his patients to do so as well. His most rewarding activity, however, is traveling to the Dominican Republic every year on a mission trip to perform hip and knee replacements on indigent patients.
