About The Practice

Los Angeles Orthopaedic Center

Los Angeles Orthopaedic Center is an orthopaedic surgery practice serving the needs of Downtown Los Angeles, California, and the greater Southern California area alike. Led by Marc Samson, MD, and Tae Shin, MD, the team of fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopaedic surgeons offers care that is unmatched in quality and compassion.

The team at Los Angeles Orthopaedic Center uses cutting-edge technology for all evaluations and many repair surgeries, including X-ray imaging, arthroscopy, and robotic joint replacement surgery. They plan for surgical repairs with computer-generated models of joints like the knee or hip and often use computer-assisted surgery (CAS) for added precision. 

Los Angeles Orthopaedic Center offers top-tier services like foot and ankle care, rotator cuff repair, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, care for hand problems, and herniated disc treatment

Whenever possible, the team utilizes minimally invasive techniques like arthroscopic knee surgery and arthroscopic shoulder surgery to make repairs while minimizing trauma, pain, and scarring. They also provide larger-scale surgeries like hip and knee replacement with an exceptionally high standard of care and attention to detail. 

Don’t hesitate to book an evaluation for joint pain, immobility, or other orthopaedic concerns. Contact Los Angeles Orthopaedic Center with a phone call or schedule an appointment online today.
