Dr. Kang's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kang "A native Las Vegan, Parminder S. Kang, M.D. is happy to be back in his home town. He graduated from the Academy of Math Science and Applied Technology at Las Vegas' Clark High School. He then graduated with honors in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 2001. A knee injury in college led him to pursue a career in medicine. Dr. Kang received his medical degree from the State University of New York College of Medicine where he graduated at the top of his class (AOA) in 2005. He then completed his orthopaedic residency at the Baylor College of Medicine in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center in 2010. During his residency, he received the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma Best Teaching Resident award. After completing his general orthopaedic training, he obtained a prestigious fellowship for an additional year of training in Adult Reconstruction and Hip Preservation at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri in 2011. During his fellowship, Dr. Kang worked directly with surgeons and researchers who were instrumental in developing the treatment protocol for hip problems. He also trained with Dr. Robert Barrack, one of the pioneers in bringing hip resurfacing to the United States. Throughout his clinical training, Dr. Kang has done research on various topics such as proprioception following total joint replacement surgery and the effects of metal-on-metal hips. 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. Dr. Kang is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the Arthroscopy Association of North America.
