Dr Getelman’s team are all top notch! I have had 3 previous knee surgeries with other doctors, and this is the first time that I am optimistic of a great result.

At every stage of the process thus far (repair to the left knee- ACL and Menisci) Dr Getelman and his team have been professional and accessible. All of my concerns and questions have been patiently addressed. The care that I received was the absolute best. I am three weeks post surgery and I continue to receive daily contact through their web-portal and I am on schedule for a complete and full recovery. I would recommend Dr Getelman to anyone in need of knee repair.

They tell it like it is, have a no-nonsense approach and take your wellbeing seriously. Conservative approach to rehab which I respect as previous surgeon who operated on my other shoulder fast-tracked rehab which that may have contributed to a re-injury and now facing repair to the repair.

Dr. Getelman made me extremely comfortable from start to finish with my surgery. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that he was going to get the job done! Just want to say thank you for a chance to get me knee back to what it once was.

His surgical expertise is of the highest order. My arthroscopic shoulder repair was unexpectedly complex. Only a surgeon with Dr. Getelman's experience and talent could have made the necessary surgical decisions, once he was within my shoulder. As a surgeon myself, I recognise and appreciate the decisions he had to make on the spot and the consummate skill with which he carried them out. I am so grateful and thankful to have chosen him. I recommend him highly. Good luck. Angus MacDonald MD FRCS(C)

Dr. Getelman from the first time he saw me as a patient wanted to help. My surgery was delayed for several months because of the Covid 19. He promise me that he would do my surgery when we got all the clearances we needed. The day of my surgery he was very supportive and kind. I felt very good when Dr. Getelman called me to see how I was doing after my surgery. That meant a lot to me. Dr. Getelman is a wonderful surgeon with a great gift. Now it's my turn to work hard on my recovery. Thank You Dr. Getelman for all your help. God Bless You!

A Saturday fall led me to SCOI UCLA Health. Trevor Shelton, MD on duty recommended X-rays. OSS X-rayed/diagnosed & braced a fractured patella w/surgery recommended. Internet research showed that Mark Getelman, MD was my surgical choice! Jenny, case mgr for Dr Getelman, was determined to get me in asap w/Dr Getelman & Sara! I was X-rayed & accurately diagnosed w/R knee displaced transverse comminuted patella fracture & the importance of surgical timing. He described 2 surgical plans, Plan A preferred, but he was unavailable for a week. He did have a cancellation that meant surgery in 24 hours! His TEAM would do their best & I would do all PreOps today in the midst of Covid. If this didn’t work, he was willing to rearrange his TH/F schedule for me! My gratitude was immense. With detailed instructions from Sara & Jenny, I did my part. His TEAM did their part. Dr Getelman completed a successful Plan A surgery in 24 hours! Thank YOU, Dr Getelman for your expert care when I needed it most!

Mark getelman is thr guy to go to. He holds back none with his knowledge and what he thinks will come of a surgery. He knows what he is doing. And he knows his sh it. I had 2 previously failed shoulder stabalization surgeries and 8 years later after tired of dealing with constant shoulder dislocations i did my research and found mark, the top shoulder surgeon in california. He did a distal tibial allograft to the front of my socket and a remplissage and a bankhart repair. He was ready for all kinds of surgeries when he opened me up and he did the surgeries that would make me have a stable shoulder again. I will recommend him till the day he retires. Do not waste your time with bad surgeons who will do nothing but waste your time and money. Nice guy and easy to talk to as well. He cares about his work and has pride in his craft. That is hard to find these days. You will not be dissapointed with this surgeon!

I was referred to Dr. Getelman because of a cyst on the back of my knee. Starting from the phone call to make my appointment to after surgery his office staff and nursing staff were excellent. Especially during the Covid 19 pandemic, I was given very upstanding care.

I can relate to a lot of the unfavorable comments in regards to his arrogant personality. The first time I saw him, he rubbed me the wrong way. That being said, he diagnosed me in 5 minutes. This says a lot since I was misdiagnosed twice. I had some initial issues with the office and throughput. I had surgery, which went relatively easy. Any issues were quickly addressed. He is a competent and skilled surgeon.
