Albert W. Marr, MD

Foot & Ankle, Sports Medicine Physician

American Board of Orthopedic Surgery

Wilmington Region

Leland – Brunswick Forest
Wilmington - Ashton

Dr. Albert Marr practices in Wilmington at 2716 Ashton Drive and in Brunswick Forest at 1168 East Cutlar Crossing. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received his medical degree from Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University. Dr. Marr then completed a five year Orthopedic Residency at the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and a one-year fellowship in Foot and Ankle and Sports Medicine at the Foundation for Orthopedic, Athletic & Reconstructive Research in Houston, Texas. He is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and specializes in the foot and ankle and sports medicine. In addition, he is a member of the American Association of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, the Southern Orthopedic Society, the sports medicine team physician for Cape Fear Community College for over 20 years and the American College of Sports Medicine.

Dr. Marr is one of the only fellowship trained foot and ankle specialists in the area to be trained in total ankle replacement surgery for patients with arthritis of the ankle. Total ankle replacement surgery may offer select patients many of the same benefits as total joint replacement of the hip and shoulder. Dr. Marr uses both the Prophecy INBONE Total Ankle System and the STAR™ ankle technology. He has a particular interest in injuries of the foot and ankle, total ankle replacement, sports medicine and general orthopedic surgery.

As a dedicated distance runner and a foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Marr understands the risks and injuries many runners contend with and the importance of approaches to keep athletes up and running. Most recently, Dr. Marr competed in the 2018 Boston Marathon where he ran the 26.2 mile course in 3 hours, 19 minutes and 7 seconds!

Having a broken foot without knowing it, imagine the surprise. I was initially treated at Emerg Ortho Walk-In clinic with a follow up visit with Dr. Marr! Based on both of my experiences, I would definitely recommend both Walk-in and Dr. Marr without hesitation!
