Care Philosophy

Describe a typical day at work! On an office day, I come in at 9:00 AM. I take care of patients in a variety of ways (initial consultation, follow-up after surgery or non-surgical care, teaching students). I enjoy connecting with patients from a human standpoint more than ever… understanding what is going on in the patient's mind and heart, as well as the shoulder or knee. After patients' hours, and at times in between, I am running the practice and advising my staff. On a surgery day, I am in the operating room by 7:00 AM, and operate in two different rooms with my teams until around 3:00 PM. I work mostly in ambulatory surgical centers and can be very efficient as a result. I love teaching students in the operating room, as well.Read more

From start to end I was in expert hands! Prior to surgery, Dr.Tehrany's team thoroughly prepped me on what to expect before, during and after surgery. Dr.Tehrany performed arthroscopic surgery on my shoulder (following multiple dislocations). Because there was so much damage, the surgery could have become more invasive. Dr.Tehrany diligently repaired my severely damaged shoulder with minimally invasive surgery. As a very active person, am forever grateful to the MOC team for my 'new' shoulder!

Dr. Armin Tehrany is one of the best doctors that I have ever met. I found him through Google. His staff were very courteous and efficient.

Over 12 years ago, I injured both my shoulders, and basically learned to live and deal with pain and discomfort. I met with Dr. Tehrany, and thus began a new pain-free chapter in my life. After an MRI, Dr. Tehrany informed me that I had massive tears to both rotator cuffs, and detached biceps. He along with Stephan performed the first surgery in March 2015, and the second in September 2015. I am currently pain free, and have full mobility. Dr, Tehrany and staff are the best.

There are many doctors with the knowledge and skill to be great doctors but only a handful that go above and beyond to be exceptional physicians. Dr. Armin Tehrany is one of those exceptional doctors. He combines his knowledge as a physician, the golden hands of a surgeon and also has the caring and sensitivity to treat his patients as human beings. He empowers his patients on any or all of these levels to assume responsibility for their healing, recovery and progress while guiding them in

Excellent doctor. Very caring. Does not rush appointment. Highly recommended.

Dr.Tehrany was an exceptional doctor. For five years, I have had terrible and aggravating knee pain. I've gone to countless doctors but none of them seemed to have an answer for me. Dr.Tehrany was recommended to me by a friend and I have never looked back. He checked my x-rays & told me my issue immediately & said I was a candidate for a surgery. I was nervous at first, as most people are when they hear they have to have surgery, but I trusted him and his judgement. Definitely recommend him!!

Conditions Treated

Dr. Tehrany says..

It's common to sub-specialize within general orthopedic surgery, in which there are many different specialties. To further sub-specialize is unusual, but it's something I had a particular interest in.  Mainly focusing on arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery, including rotator cuff repair and dislocation repair in the shoulder, as well as meniscus repair and ligament reconstruction in the knee. I enjoy being a world expert in a certain field, and one of the ways I do that is to limit my practice to only that area. In addition, because of the growth of my practice, I find that it works best because I don't have the time to see other joints—I focus on only those areas.
