He has been published in peer review journals such as the Journal of Orthopedics. He has also authored an instructional DVD about hip resurfacing with Dr. Robert Barrack and written review chapters on primary and revision total hip replacement.

I liked Dr Kang immediately. He explained my problem with my hip and what treatment was recommended. He answered all my questions. I feel that I am in good hands and look forward to a good recovery.

From the moment I met Dr. Kang and his Physicians Assistant Sherri Hall, I was kept up to date on my condition, offered alternative remedies, and given their best advice on what my treatment should be, for the best outcome and my physical well being. The entire experience was mapped out, the booklet I was given, kept me informed on what to expect and was vital to preparing me for before, during, and after my treatment. No surprises, and followed the booklet to the letter. Perfect care for me.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I highly recommend Dr. Kang. The result of my procedure is incredible. It could not have been any smoother from my first visit, my surgery and through my recovery. He is very professional and informative. He explains the entire process in a level that anyone can understand. Dr. Kang answered all my questions without rushing through the appointment. He uses the newest and safest methods. I would recommend him to anyone including family and friends.
I can honestly say that all of the reviews I have read about Dr. Kang and his staff are absolutely true! Such caring and thoughtfulness when it comes to their patients care. Everyone has made me feel so welcomed and cared about. I'm so happy to be a patient of Dr Kangs and his staff. Thank you for making my 1st visit an overall great and trusting one.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I was referred to Dr. Kang by my primary care provider and was very impressed upon meeting him. He examined my x-rays, told me exactly where the pain in my left knee was located, explained the procedure he was going to perform and reinforced that with a take home publication as well. The surgery went well, I have completed therapy and recommended Dr. Kang and his staff to another individual experiencing the same problem with their knee. Thanks to the therapy team for their help.

Dr Kang did a total knee replacement for me. He and his stall were outstanding. I recommend him unequivocally.
in North Las Vegas, NV |

Dr. Kang did a total hip replacement. I was impressed by his professionalism and courteous manner. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kang. His office staff and surgical staff are very friendly, accommodating and very professional. My wife had questions and called DOC, the doctor on call responded within one hour and resolved the problem immediately. We have received phone calls checking on my well being.One thing I can say is that you feel like you are a person and not just another patient.
Henderson, NV |
I had a total hip replacement five weeks ago. Everything from the first appointment with Dr. Kang thru the actual surgery went very well. I had confidence in him and liked his bedside manner with me. Im in physical therapy and I'm am very happy with the whole experience. If I need another surgery at some point, I will go back to him.
in North Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Kang and his staff are amazing! His surgical skill is perfection. He did a total knee replacement on me 7 months ago, and i am thrilled with the outcome. i am a 52 year old woman and he has given me back my life.... i no longer have knee pain and my leg is no longer bowed and damaged. He and his staff have given me excellent care.... before, during and after my knee surgery. I have had several surgeries over my life, and Dr. Kang is the FIRST dr to ever send me flowers!!!! AMAZING!
in Henderson, NV |
I was very impressed and pleased with Dr. Kang. He is polite, knowledgeable, friendly, and explained everything very well. I would certainly recommend him to my friends and family. Very nice bedside manners! I hope I don't have to return too soon, but if the need arises I feel confident calling Dr. Kang. When you are new in the area, it's so nice to find a Dr. who cares and is not "full of himself! Thank you Dr. Kang!
in North Las Vegas, NV |
. When i finally decided to go ahead with the surgery I looked on line and was lucky to find D.O.C. Even my regular Doctor knew of them and Dr. Kang. She told me they were an excellent choice which made it even more comforting . It has only been three months since the surgery and I am almost 100%. From the girls at the front desk,to the group of therapist and after care that Dr. Kang uses are beyond awesome. You will not be sorry
in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Kang studied my diagnostic information at great length on our first visit due to an accident at home which fractured my tibia and tibia plateau with extenuating torn ligament's. He thoroughly explained the option of surgery and everything that would intell and gave us the option of wearing a cast instead and gave a thorough explanation of the pros and cons of each treatment. We were impressed by his knowledge and ability to explain everything clearly! He and staff are THE BEST ever! ??
in Las Vegas, NV |
Start to finish, a totally enjoyable experience, if you can say that about surgery. It wasn't my first joint replacement, so I could compare the experience.. Every step was smoother, recovery was more rapid. I highly recommend Dr. Kang & us team. I'don't have them do it again in a heartbeat.
Las Vegas, NV |
The office is well organized and the staff is very friendly and open to answer questions. After x-rays Dr. Kang's assistant (Keith) came in and checked them and asked a few questions. Dr. Kang explained the x-rays and made a diagnosis and recommendation as to what needed to be done. Dr. Kang projects a very friendly and knowledgeable demeanor and is very thorough in explaining things and provided personal in-depth written material discussing preparation and the whole process.
Arroyo Seco, NM |
Dr Kang was very pleasant. He explained the procedure I would be having and made sure all of my questions were answered. The office staff was also very professional and welcoming.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I highly recommend Dr. Kang. He was my surgeon for a total hip replacement a year ago, and my hip is great. Was back riding on my bicycle in 8 weeks, and have full mobility and no pain now. Have to have the other one replaced and would not consider anyone other than him. He provides excellent patient teaching, both verbally and written, and has an excellent team of healthcare staff that he works with. Other providers, as PT and ortho in-pt staff spoke highly of him.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Three years ago, my husband had a complete knee replacement done by Dr. Kang. He had to have it done again, and was forced to go to another surgeon because Dr. Kang kept telling my husand to wait a year even though his knee was swollen, and he could NOT walk. No one knows your body better than YOURSELF, and the DOCTOR SHOULD LISTEN. Instead he would write out a prescription, and say see you in 3 months and leave the room. Meanwhile a part was loose and it needed a revision.
in Las Vegas, NV |
My father sees dr kang and told me nothing but great things about him, he did my fathers knee surgery on both knees and did a great job! I currently am seeing him for both of my knee issues and he's such a pleasant doctor. He's 5 stars and I couldn't imagine seeing any other doctor. See him and you won't be disappointed. Also the office staff is amazing!!!!! Such amazing friendly people!
in Las Vegas, NV |
I saw Dr. Kang for pain issues with both of my hips. After being seen by a young doctor in residency, Dr Kang came in and performed the same tests and confirmed the resident's diagnosis of no current issue with my natural left hip and my artificial right hip. He then referred me to get a spinal MRI and to then schedule an appointment to see Dr. Lee in the same office. He was a very pleasant person and I will be back to see him in 5 or 10 years when I need to update my artificial hip.
in North Las Vegas, NV |
I'm 60 years old. I had total left hip replacement surgery on 2/21/17 and 5 weeks later, by 3/29/17, I was off my cane, off my medication, and off to have fun in the sun! The "scar" is nothing more than a blemish on my hip. By the time I left the hospital, after a two-night stay, Dr. Kang made sure my pain was effectively managed before going home. While recuperating, Dr. Kang had me on Hydrocodone and Tramadol. Recuperating was nearly effortless. Dr. Kang is my orthopedic surgeon forever!
in Henderson, NV |
I had severe knee pain for over a year. Finally, in December 2016, I met with Dr. Kang. He spent over 40 minutes reviewing my X-rays and discussing the options available to me. Because I had previously utilized all other available options other than surgery, Dr. Kang, in great detail, explained about knee surgery. The January surgery went smoothly. Dr. Kang and his staff even sent flowers! I now have NO pain! Thank you for changing my life!
in North Las Vegas, NV |
Delayed in having a total knee replacement until I couldn't walk more than 100 yards. Found Dr. Kang by 'word of mouth' via another physician. Had my right knee replaced last May-successfully. Only 2 days in the hospital. After a few months of physical therapy my knee is BETTER THAN EVER! I am now pain free and get around like I'm a 20 year old! In my opinion, Dr Kang is the best Orthopedic surgeon the the Valley.
in Las Vegas, NV |
He is a great surgeon and has a great bedside manner.

As an ICU nurse, when time came for my mother to have a total hip due to severe avascular necrosis, I did my research as to the most competent orthopedic surgeon in Las Vegas for a total hip replacement. Dr. Kang came highly recommended by a few different MD sources. My mother had a total hip with Dr. Kang and was ready the go home the following day, although we decided to stay one additional day based on the physical therapist's recommendation. Caring competent doctor with great bedside manner.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Everything he promised came true. After 5.5 weeks I was walking and resuming my normal life. At 12 weeks I will be teeing it up at Highland Falls Golf Club. I am a 66 year old male.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Very happy and satisfied with hip replacement surgery. Very Professional, informative and good bedside manner.
Las Vegas, NV |
Excellent doctor
in Las Vegas, NV |
Saw Dr. Kang for potential hip surgery. He was personable, explained the entire procedure using a handout with pictures of the hardware,etc. and spoke with me face to face (not typing while I was talking. After being a nurse for 35 years, those are traits I look for in a physician.
in las vegas |
Our experience with Dr Kang and his staff could not have been better. My Mom needed a hip replacement surgery and Kang was positive and reassuring that he could perform the surgery with success. He was informative and confident that the surgery would go smoothly. The day after the surgery my Mom took her first steps in 9 months. His office was quick to get us in for a followup visit after her release from rehab.
Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Kang and his surgical team did a great job with my Total Hip replacement. I did, however, have a very difficult time with the office and getting results and the procedure scheduled. They actually at one point got rude with me. It was a long and tedious process and I was the one in pain! The good news was the hip was done, and I'm doing fantastic!!!
in Las Vegas, NV |
I had a total knee replacement in 2015, which did not work out. Dr, Kang did a revision on the total knee and was AMAZING! His bedside manner is wonderful and he is e extremely profession. His work left me being able to walk again without limping. I was also able to bend my knee immediately after surgery. It has only been 4 weeks and I have made more progress than possible in the entire last year. I would recommend him to any and everyone.
