Todd A. Shrader, M.D.

Joint Replacement Specialist
Sports Medicine Specialist

Board Certified and Fellowship Trained

During the four years he played collegiate soccer, Dr. Shrader witnessed more athletic injuries than most people do in a lifetime. "The doctors who treated my fellow athletes still inspire me today to help my own patients get their lives back," he says. "I do everything in my power to help my patients overcome pain and regain function." He developed this commitment on an even deeper level during a high-profile fellowship at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, where he routinely treated players from the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and IMSL, focusing on arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder and knee.

Dr. Shrader uses only the most leading-edge, minimally invasive surgical techniques, including the unique direct anterior approach for total hip arthroplasty (replacement). This approach not only uses a small incision, it also preserves hip muscles and tendons, allowing a quicker recovery. Dr. Shrader's knee replacement surgery techniques include partial and total knee arthroplasty through a subvastus approach, which avoids cutting into the quadriceps tendon. Patients of all ages benefit because these procedures greatly reduce their recovery time, pain, and scarring.

Born, raised, and educated in Southern California, Dr. Shrader takes advantage of the area's outdoor activities whenever he can. He surfs, bikes, or jogs with his dogs nearly every day. Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group was the perfect fit. "I get to see patients who share my passions and who love the South Bay as much as I do," he says. "That motivates me even more to find the perfect treatment plan for each one."
