Dr. Timothy Hartshorn, MD

His passion for the shoulder was cultivated in large part by his mentors during residency at the University of Southern California and those during fellowship at the Harvard Shoulder Service.

Dr. Hartshorn has written multiple book chapters and has many publications in the peer-reviewed literature. Recently, he was honored by his appointment as a faculty instructor for the San Diego Shoulder course, a prominent course now in its 31st year with attendees from around the globe.

Care Philosophy

The goal of L.A. Shoulder & Sports Medicine is to distinguish ourselves by making patient satisfaction our ultimate metric for clinical success.  Understandably, surgeons often focus on objective treatment and outcome and may under appreciate the importance of the process – the experience of care.  Diagnostic procedures, surgeries, and therapies constitute treatment, but not care.  Our "heart" is just as important in the "Art" of medical practice, if not more so.   We care about your experience and how you perceive your care.  Were your questions answered?  Did we listen attentively?  Was the diagnosis and plan clearly explained?  More personal care leads to better communication, more reasonable expectations, and more patient involvement, all resulting in better quality of care.  Let us show you the Art of medicine is as important as the science.

Probably the best doctor of any type that I have been to. And I am OLD! He has helped both me and my husband and we are very pleased.
in Boston, MA |
I saw many shoulder docs before I came to see him and all of them said I needed shoulder replacement. I really didn't want one, and he that although maybe in the end I would end up with one there are "always options" which was nice to hear. We did three stem cell injections in my shoulder and I am not kidding you it feels great. Not sure how long it will last but it was nice to see a doctor that didn't want to cut first.
