- hip replacement
I had a hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Mohler in January 2023. The surgery was performed on an outpatient basis at California Orthopedic Institute. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Mohler, his staff, and the outpatient surgical facility. The whole process was explained in detail. The surgery was a success. The recovery process included Physical Therapy that helped. I am so grateful to be free of hip pain and to be able to walk and climb stairs again. Thanks to Dr. Mohler, I am so grateful for my new hip.

Dr. Kansara has done a great job with my right shoulder reversal implant. He was great in surgery with partners. I was pleased with all persons and Dr K. My shoulder had been thru it all, torn and busted. It needed help. My PT is going great. A job Well Done! Thank U Dr. Kansara and Nurses.
- Left Total Knee Replacement
I met Dr. Schultz back in July 2022 for a consult for my left knee. I have had pain in my knee for over 15 years and after speaking with Dr. Schultz and my options I decided to schedule my LTKR. I am almost 4 weeks post op from my surgery and I am so happy that I decided to it. Dr. Schultz and his Nurse Evelyn have been amazing. Dr. Schultz is such a kind, caring and compassionate surgeon who always answered any questions that I had prior to my surgery. If you are looking for a great surgeon who also has a wonderful bedside manner then look no further. Having this knee replaced was the best decision I made. Thank you Dr. Schultz and Evelyn!!
- Rt shoulder, repair & replace
I did have a repair of my shoulder and biceps a year ago. Unfortunately it did not hold thru therapy. My Dr did a great job. Then I was to find another Dr to do what was needed right away. Here is Dr Kansara. What a prayer to be sent my way! He did a wonderful job with my Shoulder Replacement & Biceps!! I'm n PT now and things are going great! 4 more appts to go. I recommend Dr. Kansara with 10 stars. The office personnel are very on it and respectful.
- Left knee replacement
I had been in pain for over a year and I was then referred to Dr. Mohler. When I met with him and explained what was going on, his comment was that I had been in pain too long and we need to take care of it. His scheduling nurse called right away and I was able to have my surgery in a very timely matter. The surgical staff was amazing and my surgery went well. I was able to walk right away and I had very little swelling, pain and bruising. I stopped using crutches after 3 days. I am 10 days post-op and I feel amazing! Thank you Dr. Mohler and your amazing staff.
- mild shoulder injury
I was very fortunate to have Francesca manage my PT. From my initial visit, I was impressed with her knowledge, in-depth explanations and dedication to achieving good results. She always provided illustrated instructions for at-home exercises. Over time, she closely monitored my progress and made appropriate adjustments. Francesca is a highly competent and caring professional.
I would like to give a shout out to Leticia, MRI technologist.
This was the most comfortable MRI experience I have had.
Leticia explained the procedure thoroughly. She gave me a blanket and sound proof headphone.
Thank you Leticia.
- knee pain
Dr Kansara was very helpful to me regarding knee pain. He very professional, knowledgable and good communicator..Look forward to working with him during my recovery.
- Torn muscle
Dr. Kansara was an absolute Godsend. I couldn't give a higher review. It was wonderful to be getting a diagnosis from a fellow Body-Nazi. And did I mention that Dr. Kansara attended a prominent "Public Ivy" for both Undergrad......and Medical school? Five stars! And two enthusiastic thumbs up!
- shoulder, arm, neck, wrist, & hand
Francesca and Claudia were very helpful in my work injury- post treatment. They both explained the treatment process and exercises very thoroughly. They were both very friendly too and gave me helpful hand outs of exercises to do at home.
Thank you to both

- Left knee replacement
Very pleased with my surgery done by Dr. Schultz.
Also very pleased with the physical therapists; Kristine, Shane, Laicee and the entire support staff. They took the time to work with me and help me go thru the recovery process. I am now able to walk fine and this is because of their great work. My quality of life has greatly improved as a result of their efforts. I highly recommend the Calif Orthopaedic team.
- Fractured humerus
Dr. Kansara did an excellent job walking me through the healing process of my broken arm. He showed me the x-rays, gave me hope that the pain would eventually lessen, and provided clear explanations of what movements I should do and should not do. He was an outstanding listener and answerer of my questions.
- Knee replacement
I have had both knees replaced within this past year. Dr Schultz performed both surgeries with great success, I can now walk several miles without knee pain. Climbing and descending stairs was very painful before the knee replacement surgery, now stairs are not a problem!
I recommend California Orthopaedic Institute to anyone needing knee replacement surgery. The Doctor and staff are excellent and very professional.
Stephen L Sawyer
- Hip replacement, Right
Scenario, I arrived at the hospital @ 7:30 am (California Orthopedic in Hillcrest), checked-in w/ 2 questions, date of birth and name, so I sat down. 45 seconds later, a nurse opened a door and request Mr. Sawyer, I was thrilled. She was so pleasant and positive; I knew I was in great hands.
I arrived at my designated bed thus they perform their duties, they were polite and positive. Thank you.
Next, a nurse of the Doctor informed me that he 15 minutes behind. Huh? That was not necessary but thank you. My conclusion, the nurses and staff have continual conversation w/ Dr. Mohler. Again, I am thrilled.
So, at 7:40 am, I am approached by another nurse, "Are you ready to go?". Lets go....................
I am at surgery at 10:15 am..............at 12:30 pm, I am at the recovery facility.
So, a nurse runs to me(okay, walked up and asked if I wanted to stay the night (I asked the Dr. Mohler, get me out of this hospital) and he offered me options so the nurse was fully aware of this. I prefer home than a hospital. She was awesome.
So, conclusion, I arrived at the hospital @ 7:30 am, left the hospital @ 2:30 PM, the same day.
Doctor Mohler thank you.
- Left and right total hip replacement
In 2020 I had a total replacement of my left hip and was told my right hip was on its way out as well. Dr Mohler was so confident and respectful of my situation and after my surgery I went into pt and in a short time I was feeling much better. It's now 2022 and I just had a total hip replacement on my right side. It's been just over one week and I'm walking mostly without a cane or any device! The pain from the surgery is tolerable and it's amazing how much better I feel now. Dr Mohler is in my opinion is a top notch Surgeon as well as a nice man!! His staff are pleasant and so good at what they do. Thanks Cecy and Dr. Mohler you guys are the best!
