Dr. Corey Lieber is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in the operative and nonoperative treatment of acute orthopedic injuries and conditions including fractures, sprains, strains, soft tissue injuries, and infections. He joins NOI after relocating to Orange County in December 2014 from Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he partnered with Dr. Zachary Adler to develop a hospital-based acute care orthopedic service line for Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. In relocating to Orange County, Dr. Lieber brings with him a vision for a systems-based method of providing a comprehensive, specialized, and team-based approach to orthopedic injury care at the Newport Orthopedic Institute and Hoag hospital system. More recently, his focus has been on redesigning the patient care experience of his service line based on the principles of patient-centered care and encouraging the development of a well-informed patient who can participate in a shared decision making model. During years of dedicating and designing care for injured orthopedic patients, Drs. Lieber and Adler have developed an extensive infrastructure of decision care pathways and protocols based on best practice guidelines for both their patients and referring providers. They are currently working on a project to organize this information into an educational website for patients and providers and incorporating it into a web-based application for urgent care centers and emergency departments in Orange County. In his spare time, Dr. Lieber enjoys family life and traveling with his wife Vanessa Kitzis, a critical care physician, and his two young sons. He also enjoys participating in various community outreach and volunteer opportunities including teaching local elementary school students about bone health and as a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon's Disaster Response Team.
