  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!!

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.

  • MRI

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.
