The board certified physicians at Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group are also athletes. They have first-hand experience with athletic orthopedic conditions and are skilled at treating both acute injuries and chronic conditions. Examples of acute sports injuries include ruptured tendons, broken bones, and torn ligaments. Chronic conditions, such as tennis elbow or pain, stiffness, or swelling in other joints, develop gradually after repetitive use and may require surgical treatment. Because athletic injuries adversely affect our patients’ health and often prevent them from participating in the activities they love, treatment by our surgeons is doubly important.
