"I have had nothing but good experiences at Southern California Orthopedic Institute. Dr. Auerbach is a very capable surgeon with innovative techniques and instruments. I feel confident that my surgery will come out fine just like the last one. Dr. Auerbach has helped save my hands. I like how Southern California Orthopedic Institute operates. I have also had both my knees replaced there. Dr. Friedman did an excellent job. Also, the physical therapy department is excellent. I highly recommend Southern California Orthopedic Institute for orthopedic work." – Paul J.
