Kathleen Peter, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon - Joint Replacement 


My orthopedic surgery training was at one of the nation's busiest hospitals - Los Angeles County - which gave me great exposure to a wealth of orthopedic problems and treatments. In my practice, my goal is to assist my patients in returning to their desired level of activity. I strive to develop a working relationship with my patients to achieve this goal, and I encourage them to be active, knowledgeable participants in their treatment plan. I have a special interest in adult hip and knee reconstruction.
