Dr. Cameron's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cameron "I moved to the United States from Zimbabwe in 1997 and completed high school in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I attended Furman University where I played tennis while majoring in Health & Exercise Science. I then earned my medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine and completed my residency at the University of Chicago. Following this, I completed a fellowship in hip and knee replacement surgery at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, California. I have since moved back to the east coast to be closer to family."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cameron "My goal is to get to know you and understand the impact your hip or knee pain is having on your overall health and function.  I also want to understand your goals of treatment. Ultimately we work together to manage your arthritis conservatively and only consider surgical intervention when conservative treatment has failed."

Dr. Cameron was very informative and patient from my first visit regarding my potential hip replacement right through my last post surgery visit. I never felt like I was being pushed through the process at any time. He and his staff answered all of my questions professionally and thoroughly...more

I was very pleased with Dr. Cameron. In his words, he treats the patient not the X-Ray. Over a two year period he gave me solid advise before moving forward on my hip replacement. It is doubtful you will find a better surgeon than Dr. Cameron.

Best decision I made was coming to Dr. Cameron. He is kind, & courteous, with a straightforward manner. He explained everything so there were no surprises. Six months now and my knee back to normal.
