Prior to joining Maryland Surgeons, he worked in Washington, DC and Gaithersburg, MD in a large multispecialty physician group and maintained a busy, broad-based practice in Acute Care, HPB, and Cancer Surgery. As a Clinical Assistant Professor at George Washington University, he was involved in the education of resident physicians and medical students.

As a child, Dr. Damle was fascinated by all aspects of science especially astronomy and biology. His exposure to medicine came early as he would often accompany his father, a Cardiothoracic surgeon, on weekend rounds. He saw first hand how patients can be healed with a successful operation and observed the importance of diligent and compassionate post-operative care. Since medical school, he has worked in academic, urban community, and rural settings and enjoys caring for patients during all stages of their illness.
Dr. Damle is married to a physician and has two young children. In his spare time he enjoys international travel, bicycling, gardening, and outdoor adventures with his family.
For more than 150 years, Saint Agnes Hospital has been dedicated to the art of healing by providing exceptional care to the greater Baltimore area. Built on a strong foundation of excellent medical care and compassion, Saint Agnes is committed to providing the best care for our patients for many years to come.
