With a focus on implementing the latest in proven effective technology, tools and methodologies, Dr. Albert has achieved a well-respected and highly regarded reputation within the local medical community as well as among his patients.
“Dr. Albert has always subscribed to a philosophy whereby the treatment plan he recommends to patients is exactly the same one he would recommend to a family member.”
Dr. Albert focuses his practice predominantly on a wide range of sports injuries, and particularly on injuries and disorders involving the knee and shoulder in the recreational athlete. He has previously worked closely with the athletic departments of Fullerton High School and Irvine Valley College.
He prides himself on being an extremely ethical physician who exhausts all non-operative measures before resorting to surgery. When surgery is, however, the only option available to achieve the desired result, Dr. Albert has had the experience and technical proficiency that has led to patients reporting impressive and striking improvements after treatment. Dr. Albert’s surgical expertise relates primarily to knee and shoulder arthroscopy (having performed more than 6000 of these procedures during his career), but he also treats other orthopedic conditions, including fractures and arthritis.
