Dr. Karim Abdollahi, MD
As an upper extremity orthopedic surgeon, I take care of problems related to the hand, shoulder and elbow. I listen to my patients with compassion to fully understand their problem. Then I perform a thorough examination and use appropriate tests to reach an accurate diagnosis. I can do x-rays and diagnostic ultrasound in my office as well as ultrasound guided injections. I provide cutting edge treatment supported by the latest literature available. I perform minor procedures such as mass excision (remove lumps) and trigger finger release with ultrasound guidance in my office. For the patient, this is convenient and cost effective. My goal is to get you back to your activities quickly and safely.

He's great!

Dr Abollahi is an Excellent doctor in his field of expertise. He listens and responds well and efficiently. He has you video record him while giving instructions to you, so you can listen to him over and over if neede. He responded to my need in the late hours in the ER and was treating me from there with pain medications and ex-rays that he needed to get me into surgery the next day. I appreciate his smile along with his confidence.

Dr. Abdollahi is the most accomodating and patient doctor I have ever encountered. He actually had me use my Iphone to record all the answers to my questions while he logically addressed every one of my concerns. I can tell he intentionally leaves out medical jargon so his explanations are more simple and effective. He's the best!
in Laguna Niguel, CA |
Great experience, caring, never felt rushed, exhausted all options before recommending surgery. Excellent ulnar nerve surgery , much better & faster recovery than I read online.

I went to see Dr. Abdollahi for a volar Bartons fracture. He was very accommodating when it came to my choice of anesthesia. He performed the entire procedure with an arm block and light sedation. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs treatment in his specialty. He is caring, professional and gentle. Thank you Dr. Abdollahi for putting my broken arm back together again.
