Dr. Raj selected as 2012 Southern California Super Doctors. To be featured in January 2012 issue of Los Angeles Magazine.

Dr. Raj, SuperDoctors

A select group of physicians were recognized as 2012 Southern California Super Doctors in the January 2012 issue of Los Angeles magazine. ”Super Doctors” honors physicians who are highly regarded by doctors, nurse practitioners and nurse managers throughout Southern California. Ballots were sent asking, “If you needed medical care, which doctor would you choose?” to identify those doctors most highly recommended by their peers. Nominees were grouped into more than 30 medical practice areas, and nominees with the highest point totals from each practice area were invited to serve on a blue ribbon panel to review, score and interview a list of doctors selected for their primary practice area. Point totals from the ballot surveys and the screening process were then added to arrive at a final point score.

Dr. Raj and a soldiers “My Iraq Experience” from Dr. Phil’s personal blog

Dr. Raj :: and a soldiers "My Iraq Experience"

“It was hot.”

I generally give people this bland response when they ask me of my Iraq experience. I’ve learned to keep my overseas service somewhat private information, only opening up to those I feel I can trust. Part emotional safeguard, part reluctance for conversation, I feel most people don’t deserve admission into such a sensitive and pivotal point in my life. Life was hard for the six months I was there fighting under our flag. I nearly lost my life on numerous occasions, getting shot in a nighttime rooftop ambush on my platoon after being in country for only three weeks. We were stationed just outside Fallujah, at that time in mid-2004, considered by many the most dangerous city on planet Earth. Daily rocket attacks; hair-raising night patrols and gut-wrenching roadside checkpoints were stone cold realities to me while I was there. No way could I predict that the single most altering day of my life awaited me three weeks before my beautiful plane ride home was scheduled for departure. September 6, 2004 will forever burn in my memory as the day that everything changed. Click here for more information >>

Dr. Raj and Conservative New Technologies

With the advent of shows like “Dancing with the Stars”, the mainstream population is seeing a constant increase in the trend of losing weight and getting into shape. And due to this increase, well-known Beverly Hills Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Raj is rigorously seeking people to aid him in spreading the message of injury awareness and prevention during activities that follow this trend.

In an effort to help this movement of weight-losing exercises and activities, Dr. Raj uses his expertise to state how do we do such activities without experiencing catastrophic injuries.

In addition, the accomplished bone and joint surgeon is also very knowledgeable in non-operative, more conservative prevention-based techniques.

Dr. Raj is now seeing more people stating that they want to hike, dance, etc., with questions like “What do I need to work on in order to prevent injury and allow me to flourish?”

It’s important to note that all people are, in fact, NOT created equal, and different body habits are prone to different injuries for each unique individual. For example, weak quadriceps often make you more prone to kneecap injuries.

Be aware that a new activity performed incorrectly may lead to injury, disability, and even weight gain.

Take the first step to exercise efficiency. Check out your Orthopedic status by a team of specialists that offers a comprehensive spectrum of treatment. And remember, the most critical part of your recovery starts before treatment – with education of your surgical and non-surgical options.

Call Dr. Raj today at 213.746.1070.
