About me

Hi, my name is Dr. Justin Yang. Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I am an orthopedic surgeon who practices at the Los Angeles Medical Center. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente where we use a team approach to caring for our members.

Biography

I am originally from Houston, Texas. I attended Rice University and received my bachelor's degree in biomedical egineering. At Rice, I played collegiate soccer and became interested in sports medicine. After graduating, I attended medical school at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine where I also met my wife who is an internal medicine physician at Kaiser Permanente Glendale Medical Offices. I then went on to complete a residency in orthopedic surgery at Washington University in St. Louis, where I was involved in taking care of the St. Louis Rams football team and the St. Louis Blues hockey team. I then had an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship at the University of Connecticut, where I helped to care for the NCAA champion men and women's basketball team, along with the football, hockey, and soccer teams.

About my practice

I specialize in treating injury and instability of the shoulder and knee, often as a result of a sports-related injury. This typically involves conditions such as ACL and PCL tears, shoulder dislocations, labrum tears, cartilage defects, multi-ligament injuries of the knee, and meniscus tears. I also treat athletic conditions of the elbow, hip and ankle. Additionally, I care for patients with rotator cuff problems and perform shoulder replacement procedures in older individuals. I am trained in both arthroscopic and open reconstruction techniques. I work closely with the nonoperative primary care sports medicine team to get our athletes back onto the field, and our patients back to their recreational activities and normal function.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my family as much as possible, and volunteering at my church. I also enjoy playing soccer and tennis during my spare time.
