Dr. Sah's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sah "Welcome to Sah Orthopaedic Associates at the Institute for Joint Restoration. I hope that the website (SahOrtho) is valuable in providing an introduction to our unique program and an overview of my background. As useful as this resource can be, I do value the personal interactions and relationships with patients the most. Therefore, I look forward to having the opportunity to meet you and to discuss your hip or knee problems. Having been born at Washington Hospital in Fremont, I have a deep commitment to the Bay Area community. I strive to practice medicine the same way my father did, a head and neck surgeon and Chief-of-Staff at Washington Hospital, with a patient-first emphasis and thorough and compassionate care. First and foremost, I pride myself on being available to my patients and developing long lasting relationships. I was drawn to orthopedic surgery because of the ability to help people relieve pain and thereby RENEW activities, RESTORE function, and thus RECLAIM their quality of life. I pursued specialized training in minimally invasive and revision hip and knee surgery to have the tools to best serve my patients. I also have an interest in orthopedic research and remain active in publishing articles and presenting this work at national meetings. I believe that these endeavors are essential to provide the most current and reliable care to my patients. I perform less invasive hip and knee replacements, knee arthroscopy, as well as complex hip and knee revision surgeries. I also have interest in partial knee replacement and partial patellofemoral replacement. I am the only surgeon at the Institute performing outpatient total hip and knee replacement, as well as anterior hip replacement. "

Patient Comments (5)

Dr Sah and his staff are some of the best I've encountered, and (sadly) that perspective stems from a wealth of experience (10+ procedures) with various orthopedic surgeons. While his interpersonal skills are second to none, surgical outcomes are what matters most, of course -- and my 2 knee...more
