Dr. Sohlpour is by far the most friendly, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable doctor I have had! Always makes my day better! I just love this doctor and would always recommend him to people who need his special services!

Dr. Soulhpour is wonderful, highly skilled, professional, caring and kind. He has replaced both my knees and repaired my shoulder. He is an incredible surgeon and unlike some surgeon's he is also very personable, very kind and cares deeply for his patients. He is easily accessible when you have post surgery questions, really takes care of you from first visits with tests to followup post surgery visits with lots of encouragement but also very truthful and realistic about outcomes. He must be in at least the top 10 if not top 3 St. Jude's surgeons! I appreciate him so very much.

Once in the doctors room I felt rushed. I had an MRI done. The doctor wouldn't tell me anything the MRI even after I kept asking about it. He said not to worry and that he prescribe me pills for inflammatory (he didn't bother asking if I had problems with taking pills, which I do). I needed to know about my torn tendon and rotator cup which is what is hurting me the most. He only focused on arthritis. now I'm left to see another doctor to get a second opinion which would be my first opinion since this doctor didn't give me his. I mentioned I felt rushed because all the doctor did was come in and ask me how I got hurt, wrote me a prescription and even though I still had questions he walked out of the room.

Physician Bio

Recognized as one of Southern California's top orthopedic surgeons, S. Shawn Solhpour, M.D., specializes in successfully treating knee and shoulder pain, whether caused by sports injury or early or advanced arthritis conditions. In addition to creating exceptionally high outcomes (as reported by the California Joint Replacement Registry), he has repeatedly won the Patients' Choice Award from a leading national consumer group for his near-perfect patient satisfaction scores.

Dr. Solhpour is highly experienced in all-inside ACL and PCL reconstruction, allowing active individuals of all ages get back to doing the things they love. His expertise also includes innovative approaches to rotator cuff repair and shoulder instability procedures (arthroscopic and open), as well as today's newest advances in knee replacement (partial, dual compartment, and custom procedures).

Before joining St. Jude Heritage Medical Group, Dr. Solhpour completed his orthopedic residency at Harvard, followed by fellowships in Biological Joint Reconstruction (Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School), Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center), and Trauma (Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School).
