Accepting new patients

My patients are like family to me. I know that each one needs unique care, and I take special steps to make sure I give the right diagnosis and treatment plan to each one. Although I'm one of the region's most in-demand hip arthroscopy and replacement, shoulder, and knee surgeons, only a small percentage of my patients actually require surgery. I find that most can be treated successfully with Platelet Rich Plasma or other types of injections, the right physical therapy program, medications, and other non-invasive regimens. I understand that patients have more to their story than what's on a medical chart. I take time to find out as much information as possible about each of my patients' lifestyles and their philosophies about medical care. I'll work with other doctors if need be and even refer a patient to another specialist if that's what's best. I became a doctor because I wanted to help fix people's bodies. The added benefit is that helping people get physically healthier leads them toward greater emotional health and happiness, too. I stay current on the latest medical advances and treatments so that I can keep doing this for years to come.

Care Philosophy

Patients need to have confidence in their doctors, especially if surgery is being considered. I'm a board certified doctor and surgeon, and I'm fellowship trained in sports medicine. I use all available medical resources to help my patients, even if it means developing new surgical and diagnostic techniques to solve a specific problem. I use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible.

Helping people get better really is my passion, and thousands of my patients have benefitted from that. Through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, we're partners the whole way.

Dr. Huber Says:

Feedback from patients is always welcome. One note on wait time is that until a patient is actually in my office, I don't know how much time I need to spend with them. It does sometimes affect wait times for those still in the lobby or in a room, but each patient can be sure they'll get my full attention when they see me. I appreciate your patience!

Patient Comments (6)
in Torrance, CA |
Dr. Huber told my 6 year old grandson that if pulling the pin out of his arm hurt them he would stop and use anesthesia the following day. Instead he pulled it out while my grandson screamed bloody murder, for the next 10 minutes. Then they forgot about us in the "cast room" and came back and said we could leave before the second cast was even put on. Then the secretary tried to schedule a follow up appointment for 4 weeks and 1 day when the doctor said to return in 3 weeks. Wow, I'm in shock.

Dr Huber is an outstanding physician. He is very respectful in explaining the diagnosis and prescribed treatment. I wish all physicians were up to his level of excellence. Izzy Eichenstein

Dr. Huber has operated on my knees several times and I would not trust anyone else. He is very educated in his field and can explain what is going on where anyone can understand. He spends time and I have never felt rushed by him. I recommend him to anyone that is need of an orthopedic surgeon.

I wish I could leave less than a star. Horrible bedside manner, bordering on abusive, not great surgical skills and absolutely no follow up after a 12 year old's surgery. I would consider myself lucky if I never had to lay eyes on this Dr. again. If I could go back in time and tell the hospital to call the trusted and respected surgeon we have used in the past I would have never let this dr. touch my son. What a horrible expierence.

Awesome Doctor... Super smart and skilled.
in 1414 S. Irena Ave., Redondo Bch. |
Dr. Huber is a wonderfully caring and understanding doctor! He is exceptionally knowledgable and has a great attitude towards me and my family. His friendliness and concern for me are very refreshing! I have necrosis of the hip socket, arthritis of the shoulders and am 85yrs. of age. Dr. Huber is always lovely! Unfortunately his staff is a cold and rude as Dr. Huber is warm!
