  • Hip replacement

Dr. Jeff Schultz replaced my right hip in January. Within three weeks, I was totally mobile, could resume my walks and workouts. I had a hip replacement by a different orthopedic 2 years ago---had complications. My experience with Dr. Schultz was just the opposite. No complications at all. Quick recovery to better condition that I have been in many years!

  • Progressive recovery from closed fracture of the medial portion of the right tibial plateau

How fortunate we are here in San Diego to have the opportunity to consult with a multifaceted, world renowned Orthopaedic Surgeon who specializes on sports medicine as well as in other more general cases. After having had imaging tests, CT and X-rays, Dr. Kansara determined that my diagnosis, closed fracture of the medial portion of the right tibial plateau did not justify surgery, provided I continue to follow his advice strictly. Expert in his field, Dr. Kansara is also a kind, gentle and patient human being who took time to listen actively to my concerns. He offers his advice firmly, communicates clearly while systematically pointing to the X-rays for me to visualize the extent of the injury and how to allow the healing process to take place successfully over a given period of time. Dr. Kansara exudes a great deal of positive energy which is quite contagious.

  • Rotator Cuff Surgery

Dr. Kansara is such an amazing Dr! I was so impressed when I first met him. He gave me quality time. He is not the type of Dr. to rush you in and out. He genuinely wants to put you at ease and have you well informed about your condition and the procedure. On my surgery day he made me feel I was in good hands. His follow up has been encouraging and empowering. I am so grateful I found him and would recommend him to anyone that asks my opinion!

  • Right hand, middle finger

From the first visit to my post-op appointment I was very happy and impressed with the customer service I received through out, especially Dr Mohler and his staff at the pre-op and post-op appointments. They were awesome! Dr Mohler did an amazing job with the surgery as well as putting me at ease by answering my questions in a way I could understand. Thank you so much!

  • expert dialogue

I was impressed with Dr. Kansara's friendly, professional and insightful evaluation of issues I was having with my hip and elbow. Reflecting a true acceptance of my independence in controlling my treatment options he was able to converse with me as an equal and yet impart his wisdom and expertise to my conditions.

  • Knee surgery for meniscus clean-up

I've seen Dr. Kansara for issues with my knees and shoulders. He is extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to and has the bedside manner you want all your doctors to have. I asked a lot of questions, and he took the time to answer every one. I ended up having surgery to clean up a torn meniscus. The whole team was awesome, fun to chat with and totally professional. The clean-up worked great and as a 65-year-old professional skydiver, I have zero pain in that knee now. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kansara and his team - they are fantastic. He's the ortho you want taking care of you.

  • Right Shoulder

This is the first time with Dr Erwteman regarding my right shoulder pain. Dr Erwteman and his staff are very professional. Dr Erwteman explained my complain and provided me with his recommendation. They treated me with respect. Thanks again.

  • 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.
