Motion is life. Motion helps us to define ourselves. A loss of mobility is often viewed as a loss of freedom and independence. As an Orthopedic Surgeon, my expertise is in the restoration of mobility. My area of specialty interest and training is Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement. My goal is to restore your mobility and freedom to perform the activities of life that make your life enjoyable. I use a variety of treatment methods from non-operative to operative depending on what is best for each individual. I look forward to helping you return to an active life.

As an adult reconstructive surgeon in private practice, I perform over 500 hip and knee replacements and over 100 knee arthroscopies annually. Over the past thirty years, I have grown my solo physician private practice into a 20-physician group based in Newport Beach,California and currently serve as the elected Chairman of the Newport Orthopedic Institute. In addition, I was elected to serve as the first Surgeon in Chief and Chief of Staff of the Hoag Orthopedic Institute, a joint venture Orthopedic Specialty Hospital that opened in 2010. Since 1989, I have been involved in the research, design, development and commercialization of numerous orthopaedic devices including a novel ultrasonic cement removal system, two separate hip prostheses, software and instrumentation for Computer-Assisted Knee Surgery, as well as the instrumentation for a next generation total knee system. I hold eleven US patents as co-inventor for biomedical products and methods, and have two patents pending. I have taught and continue to teach the techniques of minimally invasive, muscle sparing hip and knee replacement to surgeons on a weekly basis.
