Dr. Forbes' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Forbes "As a fellowship-trained joint replacement surgeon, I received extensive training in direct anterior total hip replacement, as well as other less invasive surgical techniques for rapid recovery. I underwent fellowship training in joint replacement and adult reconstruction at the prestigious orthopedic specialty hospital Hoag Orthopedic Institute. It is the highest volume joint replacement center in California. HOI has received recognition from Becker's Orthopedic Review, a 5-star ranking from CMS, and the Press Ganey Pinnacle of Excellence and Guardian of Excellence Awards. In my training, I participated in research studies for orthopedic injuries, biomechanics, and joint replacement surgery that were presented at regional, national, and international levels. I am committed to upholding the highest standards in patient care, and I take a personalized approach by focusing on each patient as an individual. My goal is to optimize outcomes through partnering with my patients and their other doctors and to speed recovery using advanced perioperative techniques and the latest technology. I enjoy building relationships with patients and seeing them make significant improvements in their mobility and quality of life. When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy traveling, surfing, snowboarding, skiing, and other outdoor recreation. Aaron L. Forbes, M.D."
