"Part of what attracts me to Orthopedic Surgery is the ability to diagnose and treat athletes and professionals from all walks of life. One day my specialty brings me a complex knee reconstruction and the next day a shoulder replacement. Similarly in my career, variety keeps my job fresh; I enjoy taking time out of my busy practice assisting my colleagues in the medicolegal domain. I am proud of my reputation thus far, and I hope to bring my expertise to future clients." -Dr. Arianjam
