I am a native of Southern California. I received my undergraduate degree from UC Davis and then returned home to attend and graduate from the University of Southern California with a Medical Degree. I remained at LA County/USC to complete an Orthopaedic Surgery Internship and Residency. To further my knowledge and expertise in Sports Medicine, I traveled to Long Beach, CA and completed a yearlong Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Southern California Center for Sports Medicine. While there, we treated athletes from all levels of sport, as well as, being the designated Team Physicians for Cal State Long Beach. I was trained in the most up to date skills and techniques in Arthroscopic Knee and Shoulder surgery, as well as, Knee and Shoulder Replacements.
I have now been practicing in Irvine, CA for nearly 15 years. During that time I have gained a tremendous amount of experience in the world of Sports Medicine. I have been the designated Team Physician for the USA National Waterski Team, the USA Springboard Diving Team and World Team Tennis with Billy Jean King. I am currently the Team Physician for the first Professional Soccer Team in Orange County; the OC BLUES. I have been on the floor helping out at the USA World Gymnastics Championships, the USA Gymnastics Olympic Trials and the Maloof Money Cup Pro Skateboarding Competitions. Finally, I have been fortunate enough during the past few years to be taking care of some of the Top Ranked Supercross Riders in the country.
For several years, I was voted on of the Top Docs Of Orange County by the OCMA and Orange Coast Magazine. I spent time as an Orthopaedic Department Chairman at the local Hospital, as well as, having served on the Board of Directors for the local Surgery Center.
It gives me no greater joy than to help those individuals and athletes who are down the help they need to get back in action. From the Professional to the Weekend Warrior to just someone trying to get thru everyday living needs, I find it extremely rewarding to be involved in their ultimate recovery. I run a solo physician operation that includes a fully staffed Physical Therapy Center. We do our best to accommodate same day appointments whenever possible and we frown upon long wait times in our waiting room. We do not believe that our time is any more valuable than yours and we hope you'll feel the same after seeing us. I pride myself on being up to date with my knowledge and skills in the latest and greatest in our specialty. This now includes the introduction of Stem Cell Therapy to our practice.
Please come give us a try. We hope to become one of your new favorite doctors in Orange County.
We treat all our patients like family and friends. The "Golden Rule" applies here!!
I am a Fellowship Trained Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in the care and treatment of all sports related injuries, as well as, traditional musculoskeletal strains and sprains. I have an expertise in Shoulder and Knee Arthroscopic Surgery but we are happy to see everyone for all your Orthopaedic needs.
The predominance of my surgical expertise and practice focuses on Shoulder and Knee procedures. This includes common shoulder problems, such as Rotator Cuff injuries and Dislocations. I also do Knee Ligament Reconstruction surgeries and Cartilage Restoration work, as well, as well as, common meniscus procedures.
Healthgrades Recognized Doctor designation identifies leading doctors who:
Healthgrades updates the Recognized Doctor list quarterly based on board certification data. Healthgrades also receives sanction and malpractice data throughout the year, depending on how frequently the state medical boards release updates.
We remove a newly sanctioned doctor from the Recognized Doctor list as soon as we receive the information. However, it is important to note that malpractice information is publically available in only 14 states.
Dr. Greenbaum has no media or publications listed.
No malpractice history found for California.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct.You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.

Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
