Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Amini "Though people rarely need an Orthopaedic Surgeon for matters of life-and-death, they need one for matters that affect our quality-of-life. Pain and lack of function significantly impact a person's ability to work, do hobbies, play sports, or even sleep without pain. I feel fortunate to have the best job because I get to help people get back to doing what they love to do in life.

I treat people with sprains/strains, tears, breaks, and arthritis of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. I believe in exhausting other treatments before offering surgery. I strive to get to know every patient on a personal level, which helps me individualize treatment. A focused rehab and therapy program that is tailored to each individual's needs is crucial to the success of any treatment, surgical or not. Regardless if you want to throw a baseball over 90 miles per hour or just raise your arm above your head without pain, every person deserves the same level of care that is custom-fit for his or her needs."

Dr Amini performed an emergency hip replacement on me after a fall. He answered my questions patiently, he performed the surgery with the highest level of skill, and my recovery has been excellent. He inspires a great deal of trust and I feel blessed that he was available when I needed his help.

After filling out 9 pages of questionaire, I waited 45 minutes (and I had been a customer of his practice before). Only one other person was waiting, and I received no explanation for the delay. Since 45 minutes is my limit for doctors' offices (and a good rule of thumb for how well MDs budget...more
