Recognized as one of Southern California's top orthopedic surgeons,
S. Shawn Solhpour, M.D., specializes in successfully treating knee and
shoulder pain, whether caused by sports injury or early or advanced arthritis
conditions. In addition to creating exceptionally high outcomes (as reported
by the California Joint Replacement Registry), he has repeatedly won the

his near-perfect patient satisfaction scores.

surgeons formally trained in restoring knee cartilage and cartilage transplantation.
