Orthopedic Institute: A Complete Body of Expertise

Perhaps the one thing that most distinguishes the El Camino Hospital Orthopedic Institute from other area programs is the fact that our program was expressly designed by our physicians, for their patients. We are known for orthopedic care that is:

Comprehensive - Both our Mountain View and Los Gatos campuses treat a full spectrum of conditions, with subspecialty expertise in the spine and every major joint and extremity. We provide a seamless continuum of care, from diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation.

Collaborative - Our program facilitates complete collaboration between our physicians as well as with our nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists.

Compassionate - In keeping with our patient-centric approach, we have thought of everything to help our patients overcome pain, improve mobility and get back on their feet as soon as possible.
