Springtime

SPRINGTIME has arrived and the best aspect of April is the beginning of the new baseball season! Baseball diamonds are alive throughout the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys and high school and college athletes as well as weekend warriors are enjoying Americas Past-time!
The ecstacy of hitting the ball and running the bases and, possibly, sliding into home plate exceeds the enjoyment of any other sport. Hitting a home-run to end the game and jumping on home-plate is a DREAM COME TRUE which is possible no matter what level of baseball you play.
Unfortunately, injuries are a part of the game and the shoulder, elbow and knee are the most vulnerable areas to be effected.
 Fortunately,  however, the orthopaedic surgeons at The Los Angeles Orthopaedic Institute take care of the most elite baseball players in our area and will take care of the injured athlete and maximize their return to baseball.
We are the team orthopaedic surgeons for Cal-State Northridge University (CSUN) which means that we are the only doctors taking care of elite Division I scholarship baseball players in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys. We are the only surgeons that CSUN would trust to operate on those scholarship athletes many who go on to play professional baseball!!
We also care for the baseball teams for Pierce College, Antelope Valley College and Mission College as well as many of the high schools in the Tri-Valley area! We are also the team physicians for the Lancaster Jethawks which is the minor league team for the professional Houston Astros organization.
If you love baseball as much as we do and are injured, please call the baseball orthopaedic specialists at The Los Angeles Orthopaedic Institute to be treated as well as our elite scholarship and professional baseball players!!

Keep Playing!

Fifth Straight Year!

The 2013 Southern California SUPER DOCTORS issue of Los Angeles Magazine has just hit the newstands and I am happy and proud to announce that I have been selected.  This is the fifth straight year I have been chosen and it is particularly gratifying because we are chosen by our PEERS. This means that most of the orthopaedic surgeons in Los Angeles selected me to be on this small and prestigious list. In fact, I am the ONLY orthopaedic surgeon from the Antelope Valley on the list and one of only a few in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys as well.
I believe the main reasons I am always selected to the SUPER  DOCTOR list include the fact that I am the team physician for Cal State Northridge (CSUN) athletes. I am the ONLY orthopaedic surgeon in our three valleys that operates on elite, scholarship athletes. There are only a few Division I athletic programs in Los Angeles (UCLA, USC, CSUN, Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount) and the school officials, athletes and athletic trainers trust me to perform the surgery on these gifted athletes who MUST return to the same level of play prior to their injuries!
The second reason I am selected is that I specialize in minimally invasive, PARTIAL joint replacements which allow the patients to recover much quicker with less discomfort.
I am proud to be selected again to be one of the SUPER DOCTORS of Southern California and I look forward to taking care of you and your family when I am needed.

Keep moving!
