  • Left knee arthroscopic with partial medial and lateral meniscesctomy, partial syn and anterior chondroplasty.

Extremely happy with the surgery performed by Dr. Randall Mohler on my left knee. Today marks one week since surgery, I have been walking since day one, without any brace. I started doing stairs on day two. Yesterday, I began PT, but am bending my knee and doing all exercises with minimal pain. I highly recommend Dr. Mohler. This was my second time seeing him, the first time was for frozen shoulders. Both experiences left me feeling that I was getting the best professional \ medical care. My big concern going into surgery was the anesthesia, but Dr. Arthur Mischke, did an excellent job listening to me medicating accordingly. Thank you to all the surgical team.

Also, received excellent care from his medical assistant, Cecy. She is very responsive and friendly. Thank you!!!

  • Rotator Cuff Surgery

I would like to acknowledge doctor R. Mohler and his team for the fantastic surgical procedures performed to repair my four tears to my rotator cuff. This being my very first surgery in my entire 67 years Dr. Mohler made me feel so at ease and he showed his concern for my questions.

I would also like to acknowledge everyone in the Physical Therapy Department for their professionalism and knowledge of their profession.

Everyone in the California Orthopedic Institute has made the toughest days of my life a lot easier to endure.

  • Physical Therapy

I had PT for 24 sessions. Everyone was courteous and friendly without exception. I was encouraged every step of the way and comforted by telling me that it was expected when progress was slow.

My treatments were alway started on time. Instructions on how to do exercises were clear and easy to follow. Staff was readily available to assist if I had questions. Post therapy home exercise explanations and hand-outs were complete and easy to follow.

Appointments were easy to make an appointment reminders were sent routinely.

Should I again require PT I would go here without hesitation. .

Thank you.

  • Hip fracture repair

I cannot express enough how grateful my family and I are for Dr Kansara. His skill, expertise, and compassion in caring for my 91 year old mother during her hip surgery was outstanding. Thanks to his dedication and professionalism my mother is recovering well and her quality of life has greatly improved. He has made a profound difference in our lives, and we will always be grateful for his exceptional care. My sincere thanks.

I have been to this office a few times now and every time I have left very impressed. I will be having a shoulder replacement in the future and will definitely be using Dr. Kansara. I was very impressed with how he addressed every question I had and he gave me great advice. He was very personable and shared his own experiences with me. Top notch! He encouraged me to come in when I am ready. No pressure at all. Great team

  • Bicep Tendon Repair

I tore my distal bicep tendon and was referred to Dr. Tradonsky and Team. From time of diagnosis, Dr Tradonsky expedited surgery, which was much quicker than what I expected, and exactly what I wanted . Dr. Tradonsky and his team did a great job explaining the process, timelines and treatments. The surgery went as expected with no complications or issues. The staff was all very kind and professional. Recovery went well, along with all follow up appointments. I was cleared back to work all within the expected timeline. Overall a great experience.

  • Knee pain, shoulder injuries and achilles tendon injury diagnosis and treatment.

I have been seeing Dr. Kansara for more than a year and am just plain thrilled with everything at California Orthopedic Institute. The staff is welcoming and friendly, and Dr. Kansara has been instrumental in diagnosing several significant joint and tendon injuries and issues. He has been fantastic to work with, and is extremely knowledgeable. He takes his time, rather than the usual rush onto the next patient. Five stars.


  • Shoulder replacement

Dr. Schultz and his staff were wonderful during my shoulder replacement surgery and preop stuff explaining my options.

My surgery was a piece a cake not a lot of pain and my scar is beautiful. Dr. Schultz did a wonderful job. I would highly recommend him.

I did have an issue with my provider and getting physical therapy. I wasn't able to use Mission Valley, orthopedic connected to Dr. Schultz. So in 12 weeks I had six physical therapy, so I knew it to do and was doing it every day at home but I highly recommend water therapy. That's what I put it over the I actually put a ponytail in my hair that was my goal Bravo, Dr. Schultz And the swimming pool, the fountain of youth

Thank you all and keep up the good work!

Doug Garvin

  • Knee replacement

Dr. Kansara is outstanding ! I was extremely pleased with the surgery and my knee is great! I highly recommend him! I was told I would get walker and other medical equipment at hospital when I left. Hospital did not have them. Said they should be delivered. Fortunately had crutches at home to make it to next day. Talked to staff at California Orthopedic and was told someone would call back with info on delivery or pickup of items. Never got a call or a message. Fortunately I was doing so well that after a few days I could get around with a cane only. 45 days later the medical supply company called me to arrange delivery of the items. Not sure what happened.

  • Torn hip labrum

I've seen several doctors at this office and all of them have done excellent work. My newest self inflicted injury is being treated by Dr. Kansara, who is a highly competent doctor and also really funny and easy to talk to. I recommend California Orthopedic Institute wholeheartedly.


  • Knee Op.

Dr. Kansara and his Team were wonderful! As a patient, putting me at ease and great bedside manner even when things didn't go to plan (due to me), we got back on track quickly and effectively.

I'd definitely recommend the California Orthopedic institute and staff - easy location and parking, with a great Team beginning to end.

  • Broken Leg

This adventure began with an unfortunate fall at my home, resulting in a complicated fracture of my left leg. In a surgery the next day, Dr. Kansara of the California Orthopedic Institute put the bone puzzle masterly back together, and now, six weeks later, I can start to use my leg again. Dr. Kansara's extraordinary skills, and the friendly team at the California Orthopedic Institute turned this terrible event into a good outcome. Thank you very much!
