My approach to practicing orthopedic medicine and surgery is to get to know you, my patient. I want to ask questions about your symptoms, and give you a careful and complete examination. Then I can determine what simple or sophisticated diagnostic tests may be necessary and best be able to explain and help you understand your diagnosis. I firmly believe that decisions regarding both non-operative and operative treatments should be made by an informed patient with a physician who wants to give his patient the full opportunity to understand the diagnosis and the best alternatives. Then, together, we can choose the option with which the patient is most comfortable and will ultimately be the most successful. I have had many years of orthopedic medical experience in the Orange County area - teaching Orthopaedic Residents at UCI's Medical School, as Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Long Beach Veterans Administration Medical Center, as Chief of Staff and of Orthopedic Surgery at several hospitals, and as Associate Adjunct Professor of Surgery at UCI, always while maintaining a diverse private orthopedic practice. I am committed to continuing medical education in my specialties and take great pride in my reputation of top diagnostic and surgical skills. . I truly look forward to meeting you.....and to helping make you better. Sincerely, Bob Baird, M.D.Read more
