Dr. Eric A. Oristian, MD
General and Breast Surgery


Welcome to the official website of the surgical practice of Dr. Eric Oristian, M.D.!

 We understand the anxiety that can begin the moment a patient is referred for possible surgery, and we make it our goal to not only provide the best medical care possible, but also make the process as stress-free and comfortable as we can. We believe that by providing our patients and their families with the most information about their condition and the available treatment options, we can not only lessen some of the stress, but also provide personalized care that meets the specific needs of each individual patient. Our office is dedicated to providing our patients with the finest surgical care, using the most advanced diagnostic technology and surgical procedures in a personalized and compassionate environment. Our goal is to treat each patient as we would want our own families and loved ones to be treated.

 Born and raised in the Washington, DC area, Dr. Oristian received his undergraduate degree from Duke University, his doctorate at Georgetown Medical School, and finished with his residency at George Washington University. Upon graduating and completing his board certification, he fulfilled his lifelong dream of joining his father, also a general surgeon, in private practice. As a result, Dr. Oristian feels a close bond with the Washington community that he has served since that time. To this day, Dr. Oristian continues to care for patients – and their children and grandchildren!- who were treated by his father before him.

 In the scope of his practice, Dr. Oristian has had the privilege of treating patients with a wide range of medical needs including thyroid and parathyroid disorders, gallbladder disease, colon and abdominal abnormalities, hernias, and breast diseases. He has had the unique honor of being named the Director of the Breast Center at Holy Cross Hospital. In that capacity, he has led the quest to provide the most comprehensive, state of the art breast care and to become the only hospital in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to receive accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.

 Dr. Oristian maintains an active role in the medical professional community, serving as a clinical professor of surgery at the George Washington University School of Medicine and a guest lecturer at many community outreach programs. He has also had the honor of being recognized by his peers in Washingtonian Magazine’s “Top Docs”, as well as by his patients in Consumer Reports. Dr. Oristian maintains membership in multiple medical professional organizations including:

 Maryland Medical and Chirurgical Society
American Medical Association
American Society of Breast Surgeons
