Los Angeles Orthopaedic Institute

We are dedicated to preserving our patients' own knees, shoulders, and hips by using minimally invasive and cartilage sparing procedures whenever possible. Our goal is to avoid full knee, shoulder, and hip replacement surgery, and to return each patient to a healthy, active lifestyle with less pain and scarring, and faster rehabilitation and recovery.

Our Fellowship trained  physicians (Domenick J. Sisto, MD, Gregg R. Sobeck, MD, Richard E. Nussbaum, MD, Jonathan D. Botts, MD, and Jonathan Berkowitz, MD) practice at the forefront of their specialty areas. Our trend-setting Sports Medicine and Cartilage Restoration Centers give new hope to people with painful, damaged joints. When degenerative arthritis strikes, our minimally invasive partial joint arthroplasty provides an alternative to traditional total joint replacement surgery. We proudly combine the depth of knowledge found in an academic practice with the personal attention of a private practice setting, so our patients receive the highest quality care for their orthopedic needs.

Call our Sherman Oaks office (818-905-2222) or the Palmdale location (661-267-7777) to schedule your appointment.
