Hip Surgery in Beverly Hills
Dr. Raj performs hip replacement surgery through the “anterior approach.” This allows for a smaller incision and spares the important stabilizing hip joint structures.
When a patient has hip replacement surgery, the femur or upper part of the thighbone is replaced with a metal ball. The pelvic bone and hip socket are resurfaced with a plastic liner and metal shell to stabilize the hip and allow the patient to have reduced or no hip pain while regaining a more functional quality of life. For fewer restrictions, reduced risk of hip dislocation, and early mobility, the Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute is up to date with the latest in hip surgery technology.

There are numerous reasons for Los Angeles shoulder surgery: a torn rotator cuff, joint separation, a fractured collarbone, instability of the shoulder, shoulder impingement, shoulder arthritis, tendinitis, and bursitis to name a few. Each problem requires a different type of surgical procedure.
Dr. Raj is an expert at recognizing patients who would benefit from shoulder surgery. The Beverly Hills orthopedic surgery team uses a variety of office-based ultrasounds, x-rays, and MRIs to diagnose your problem and determine a surgical solution.
Most shoulder surgeries are done on an outpatient basis at the Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute, so you can return home the same day. A shoulder replacement may indicate an overnight stay. Shoulder surgeries offered include rotator cuff repair, shoulder replacement, shoulder instability procedure, and clavicle fracture repair.

Stem Cell Injections
At Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute, stem cell injections are offered with our partner practice, Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute of Cellular Therapy. These are used as treatment options for chronic joint and soft tissue injuries including arthritis, tendonitis and ligament injuries.
Stem cell injections have the potential to regenerate the damaged joint tissue into healthy tissue. Adult stem cell therapy is used instead of surgery to treat orthopedic conditions and musculoskeletal injuries in the knees, hips, spine, shoulders, and ankles. Our stem cell procedures use adult mesenchymal multipotent stem cells taken from the patient’s own bone marrow or from amniotic fluid processed at an FDA cleared laboratory.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a promising treatment for quick healing of tendon damage, injury, and osteoarthritis. This procedure allows patients the opportunity to heal without needing to have surgery.
PRP has been used safely in Europe for decades and Dr. Raj is one of the first orthopedic surgeons in Beverly Hills and California to utilize this treatment. PRP accelerates the body’s healing and regeneration powers through a purely natural process so there is no chance of an allergic reaction.
