About Me

Sports played a large part in my life, when during a track meet I fractured my forearm, leading to my first encounter with an orthopedic surgeon. This early event sparked my interest in medicine, specifically in the field of orthopedics.

I was apprehensive about the whole hip replacement procedure, but it turns out I should not have been. Everything went smoothly. Dr. Chang, the staff, the facility, everything involved in the procedure was tops. The whole thing was a marvel to me. I hope I do not have to go through it again, but would chose Dr. Chang without question.

The staff was very friendly and efficient. I was only in the waiting room for one minute before i was whisked to an exam room. In total, I was in and out in exactly one hour, and that included an X-ray. Dr. Chang was very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable, though I can't say he was exactly warm. If a friendly bedside manner matters to you, he may not be the right physician for you. But I was perfectly happy. And I was quite happy with his PA who spent considerable time with me.

Has a very friendly way about him, comforting, and easy to talk about my arthritic left hip and nerve pain being generating from it. Clearly went over short and long term treatment options.

I'll be having my knee surgery soon. So I'll be leaving a new one later. But so far I'm so excited, I've been wanting and needing this for over 20 years. I've heard so many good things about Dr. Chang. I like him and his staff,very confident,knowledgable,informative, patient and nice caring people. I was very nervous at first now I can't wait. I'll let you all know how it goes.

i am 74 and have been a very active individual and because of my over activity I have had a few problems over the years. I came to Dr Chang many years ago from my consultations with Dr Francis Yamamoto for whom I have great respect. He counseled AGAINST surgery when other doctors wanted to "cut me up". Some of my ailments cleared themselves up without surgery! Not my hip. Dr Yamamoto had retired and he introduced ne to Dr Chang. Excellent surgeon! Hip is great! Next? knee replacement!

I cannot express enough regarding the positive experience I had with Doctor Chang and his staff. The whole experience from initial consult through post operative care for my hip replacement was incredible. The procedure was state of the art with excellent facilities and staff. Doctor Chang and his staff listened and took into consideration my lifestyle when discussing post operative care. I skied 6 weeks after my operation!

I cannot begin to express how much Dr. Chang has helped me over the past few years. Two hip replacements and a broken ankle later, I can honestly say he made my life so much better. He is easy to talk to, and understands how much the pain of a bad hip can impact your life. He fully explains everything, and makes sure you understand each step of the process. In addition the follow up care is excellent.

Dr. Chang has replaced both of my knees. I am able to do all of the things I love most...swimming, running, bicycling, and chasing after grandchildren! Dr. Chang and his staff are very informative and explain everything from A to Z related to your surgery and your recovery. I couldn't ask for a better doctor or a better team!!!!

I can speak glowingly of Dr. Chang's surgical skills. After 2-3 years of babying my arthritic Rt. knee I decided to have a total knee replacement. I am 6 months out from surgery, I have full range of motion, no more arthritic pain and a bonus he straightened my Rt knee which had been "knocked kneed". I am in my 80th decade and life is good.

Dr Chang exceeded all expectations surrounding my hip replacement surgery. Up front and during follow up he has taken all time necessary to fully discuss and explain the process and status. I can say the same about his selected staff and chosen hospital (Rose Medical). Together this group exudes patient caring and professionalism. Dr. Chang described the surgery as "routine". And it absolutely was. No issues and on to a quick recovery!

My surgery had to be postponed as at the pre op at the hospital it was found that I had issues with my blood count. I quickly saw other doctors and my blood issues were resolved and Dr. Chang performed my surgery. I came home from the hospital after one day and am doing quite well. PT came on the second day I was home. I put my trust in Dr. Chang and would recommend him to any one needing this joint replacement...my left hip was replaced.

Dr. Chang and his team are fantastic. His manner is so awesome, he’s friendly while being direct; he’s accessible, both in his availability but also his personality, you never feel dumb or distant; his staff, specifically Arcelly are responsive and patient. The anterior approach has me snowshoeing today, 3.5 weeks post op.

Dr. Chang performed an anterior hip replacement 3 years ago on my right hip. He indicated I may need the left hip done eventually. I will ONLY consider Dr. Chang for that surgery. He is amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and answers all my questions with patience and concern. The recovery was much quicker than I expected. His office staff is courteous and professional.

I saw Dr. Chang as a new patient and had a wonderful experience. He listened to my concerns and was able to provide an injection into my hip in his office. He recently performed hip replacement on my friend so I was referred by a surgical patient who had a wonderful outcome. I know some of the staff from a prior sales position I had in recent years so I felt comfortable with them as well.
