Dr. Harpreet Bawa is a board-certified and fellowship-trained joint replacement surgeon specializing in the treatment of arthritis and other degenerative joint conditions of the hip and knee. Through his extensive training and experience, he has developed an expertise in joint replacement surgeries, such as total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, anterior and posterior hip replacement, and hip resurfacing procedures. Dr. Bawa also treats patients who require revision hip or knee replacements and those who have had a previous surgery or deformity requiring complex joint replacement surgery. He specializes in robotic-assisted anterior hip replacement, total knee replacement, and partial knee replacement surgery. By using cutting edge computer-assisted technologies, minimally invasive techniques, and protocols specifically tailored to each patient he is able to not only relieve his patients of their pain but also restore them to their previous level of function—or better.

Dr. Bawa completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California in Los Angeles, where he graduated magna cum laude with majors in economics and neuroscience.
