Dr. Youderian doesn't need another 5* review, but he's going to get one anyway. I don't know why I didn't write this sooner. My experience was like all the others I just read. My fall tore 3 of the 4 tendons in my right shoulder, and Dr. Y was great in both his assessment, his description of what he proposed doing, his answering questions, certainly the surgery (Nov. 2017 and his followup. I did the lengthy regime of PT faithfully, and thanks to Dr. Y's work, I've had my arm back and fully functional for over a year.

Dr Youderian performed a total shoulder replacement (reversal) on my right shoulder on May 3 at Mission Hospital, as part of a lecture/demonstration for a group of 200 doctors! I bonded with him on my 1st visit and had total confidence in him. I was able to use my arm at waist level the day after the surgery and at 3 weeks I was back at the gym lifting light weights.

Dr. Youderian repaired my torn rotator cuff in January. He answered all of my questions, put me at ease, and is just an all around great guy. My shoulder is getting better by the day and I have appreciated his thoroughness throughout the process to make sure I was getting the best care. I have already referred him to some of my friends that immediately loved him as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr Youderian repaired my shoulder after I fell while having a Grand Mal Seizure. The shoulder dislocated with a broken humerus, detached labrum and torn rotator cuff. From my very first consult with him, to surgery day, recovery and follow up, Dr. Youderian was exemplary in his knowledge, relaxed and humorous in his bedside manner, patient with listening and most importantly, he completely repaired my shoulder from a complex injury. I have full range of motion and zero pain thanks to him!

We brought our son to South County Orthopedic with a broken finger. We saw Dr. Youderian who thoroughly assessed the fracture (it unfortunately was near a growth plate), was patient, kind, and attentive. He stayed with us through every step: from the x-ray to the casting. He made my son feel comfortable and answered all my questions. It truly couldn't have been a better experience! So glad we found a friendly, knowledgeable, caring orthopedist in Dr. Youderian!

In October 2015, I fractured my elbow and received a referral to South County Orthopedic Specialists. I visited Dr. Youderian who performed surgery on my elbow. Dr. Youderian is calm, good natured and was able to answer all of my questions. I was very pleased with the care I received from the SCOS office. Dr. Youderian has expertise in the elbow and helped me gain full range and motion back. I was nervous that my elbow would never be the same, and here 3 months later I am back to normal.
