About James Kayvanfar, MD

As an engineer from MIT, I learned to pay attention to details and realized that small things can easily affect the outcome in medicine & surgery. I am very detailed oriented and meticulous with my work. First, I obtain a good history and examine the patient to make the correct diagnosis. I can treat most of the orthopedic problems that I see without surgery. I will also let my patients know when surgery is needed and when we don’t need to do surgery.
I plan every complex surgery that I perform before the day of the surgery in detail. I make myself easily available to my patients after surgery for any unexpected issues or questions that arise. I will identify and correct all the correctable medical conditions that will affect the outcome of the orthopedic condition which I am treating in the course of my treatment.
I have had the best outcomes in my field as reported to me repeatedly from independent sources.
