Dr. Sohn Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sohn Jr "Dr. Roger C. Sohn specializes in problems of the hand, elbow, and upper extremity. He is double fellowship trained and board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons. After graduating with honors from Loma Linda University School of Medicine, he completed orthopedic surgery residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical center. During his first fellowship at UC Davis Medical Center, he focused on upper extremity disorders including the hand, elbow, and shoulder. His second fellowship at Lake Tahoe Orthopaedic Institute gave him advanced training in minimally invasive surgeries such as shoulder and wrist arthroscopy. He has extensive experience with simple and complicated problems of the upper extremity. Dr. Sohn strives to educate his patients about their problems as well as the various nonsurgical and surgical options. His goal is to treat his patients in a way that minimizes the impact of their condition on their lives. "While some people eventually need surgery, many are pleasantly surprised to find that a new type of exercise regimen or splint can cure the problem. Of course, for those who need surgery, I find it very satisfying when I am able to make such a tangible difference in their mobility, stability, and quality of life through doing the best surgery possible." Dr. Sohn has had his research published in theJournal of Hand Surgery. He has authored a chapter in the Master's Techniques textbook on median nerve compression neuropathies. He holds a patent for instruments used in shoulder replacement. His surgery results have been tracked in the nation's largest implant registry with an extremely high rate of success. Dr. Sohn holds certificates of additional qualification in hand surgery and sports medicine. He has studied value based medicine while enrolled in the UCI Healthcare Executive MBA program and applies those principles to bring value to his patients' lives As a Southern, California native, Dr. Sohn spends his spare time surfing, fishing, and camping with his family. He enjoys woodworking as well as 3D design."
