Providing Expert Orthopedic Care
Few people get through life without injuring or experiencing some pain and discomfort in their bones, joints or muscles. Some of these orthopedic problems occur while playing sports, performing physical labor or taking a tumble, while others are the result of overuse, normal wear-and-tear or simply due to aging.
When this happens you can entrust your care
to the orthopedic physicians at Torrance Memorial, the 5th largest private orthopedic hospital in Los Angeles County and recognized as a provider of
extraordinary orthopedic care
