Desert Orthopedic Center
Desert Orthopedic Center is committed to helping people lead active lives, whether it's through treating a sports or work-related injury, detecting osteoporosis, replacing a joint or relieving chronic or acute pain. Our mission is to continually develop and maintain comprehensive programs in all areas of orthopedics, addressing each aspect of patient care from initial consultation, diagnosis and treatment through recovery. Our focus is on quality care, investing in the technology and personnel necessary to deliver our services efficiently and to achieve the desired results for each patient.
Founded in 1976, Desert Orthopedic Center is a multi-subspecialty regional orthopedic practice comprised of orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, a podiatrist, rheumatologist, radiologist and acupuncturist. Our physicians have staff privileges at all Coachella Valley hospitals. Between our three desert offices, we see more than 100,000 patients annually and perform more than 5,000 surgical procedures per year.
Communication is the first step in quality care and Desert Orthopedic Center places an emphasis on patient education. We hold pre-operative surgery classes; make available videotapes on planned operative procedures, informed consent or rehabilitation protocols following surgery; as well as provide patients with literature about procedures.
