Learn about Dr. Bolanos
My philosophy towards medicine is to treat the entire person, not the abnormality found on the x-ray. My professional training includes a fellowship in the surgical treatment of arthritis. I have spent my career focusing on improving the surgical care that I can provide. Last year I invented and licensed the Bolanos Hip Retractor which has made hip surgery easier and safer than ever before. I also developed and published a new way of doing hip replacements which has also allowed us to perform the surgery safer and more accurately than previous techniques. As a reviewer for the Journal of Arthroplasty, I have been able to remain on the cutting edge of surgical techniques. The focus of the healthcare I provide, however, is to treat the entire person. I consider the home situation and personal preferences greatly and consider everyone s background to tailor treatment for their needs. I work on providing culturally confident care on a national basis and have given lectures at Stanford and UCSF on these issues. I hope to help every person that I encounter and am founder of a non-profit that focuses on improving the delivery of orthopedic care to underserved communities. In summary, the philosophy you will find when visiting my office is that you are a person, not an x-ray.
