He performs knee replacement surgery, including total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, Makoplasty partial knee resurfacing and Oxford partial knee replacements. He also performs anterior approach hip replacement (sometimes referred to as the “Jiffy Hip”), which is a minimally invasive muscle sparing method and has been proven to decrease recovery time after hip replacement surgery.

His specialty training includes the treatment of painful, failed or infected joint replacements. His practice also includes treatment of painful joints, swollen knee treatment, treatment for knee pain, treatment for hip pain, fractures, arthritis and common conditions of the hand and upper extremities such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome and trigger finger.
Dr. Cummings is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS). He has been continually recognized as one of Hampton Roads’ best orthopedic surgeons as selected by his peers throughout the area. He also enjoys working with the editorial board of the prestigious Journal of Arthroplasty reviewing cutting edge hip and knee research prior to publication.
In addition to caring for patients in TPMG Orthopedics offices located in Newport News and the New Town area of Williamsburg, Dr. Cummings has clinical privileges and performs surgeries at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital in Newport News and Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center.
