Since 1971, caring for the South Bay’s families has been our privilege. Over the years the compassionate, board certified surgeons and licensed physical therapists at Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group have helped thousands of our patients recover from orthopedic injuries of the shoulder, arm, elbow, hand, spine, hip, leg, knee, ankle, and foot. Their journey from treatment to surgery and through physical therapy inspires us to keep doing what we love: putting our skilled hands and sharp minds to good use in the best community anywhere.

We strive to maintain and improve our patients’ health with the goal of returning each one to a full, active lifestyle. Our board certified physicians are highly skilled, prestigiously trained, and dedicated to using only the most up-to-date technology and orthopedic techniques. This foundation allows them to perform minimally invasive total joint replacements, knee and hip arthroscopy, spinal surgery, hand and foot surgery, fracture care, and more. They treat musculoskeletal injuries such as sprains, strains, and tendon ruptures, and also administer a variety of leading-edge non-surgical treatments.

We know that rehabilitation and follow-up is just as important as treatment and surgery. Our physical therapy department is staffed by experienced, friendly licensed physical and hand therapists, most of whom have more than 10 years experience, and some more than 20 years. They practice a wide range of therapy modalities, including the South Bay’s only aquatic therapy program, and they offer custom hand splinting and custom foot orthotics.

Our patients get quick diagnoses in our on-site, state-of-the-art OPEN-MRI in a peaceful and relaxing environment. We offer convenient scheduling options with same-day and Saturday appointments, and we accept all major PPO insurance plans, as well as CHAMPUS, Workers Comp, and Medicare. Our practice is supported by affiliations with outpatient surgery centers, major hospitals, and rehabilitation programs. A mini-operatory suite is located in our office for minor procedures.
