Southern California Doctor Recomendations
« on: January 16, 2013, 05:23:57 PM »
Hey everyone,

This is my first post but I have been reading many of your experiences for a number of years now. I'm in search of a new doctor in the southern California region who is practicing the more advanced procedures of cartilage regeneration (ie ACI, Denovo, etc.). Not sure if this topic is kosher on a forum, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations or opinions.

I know that Bugbee in SD and Jamali in Sacto do a lot of cartilage work. Bugbee has published quite a bit but no idea if they do ACI/Denovo. You could call their offices and ask.

Ask some of the posters down in the De Novo section - I am sure some of those are ion California - de Novo is only done in the US, so they'll all be US based (some have posted their Dr's details)
