Dr. Edward Nomoto has the following 2 specialties
- Orthopedic Surgery
An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.
In addition to treating trauma to the musculoskeletal system, these doctors also deal with sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.
- Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine
If you have a back injury or unexplained back pain, your doctor might refer you first to a radiologist and then to an orthopedic spinal surgeon. They specialize in the spine and can diagnose and treat spinal diseases such as scoliosis. They can also treat spinal injuries such as a displaced disc or a fracture, as well as disc degeneration and narrowing that occurs due to aging.
However, when your injury or condition affects the spinal canal or spinal cord, it’s typically better to consult with a neurosurgeon. It's worth noting that, while they're both referred to as surgeons, they can also recommend treatments that don't require an operation, such as non-surgical decompression therapy.

After seeing three other surgeons regarding the need for lumbar spinal fusion surgery, Dr. Nomoto was the last, and am very grateful to say, the best whom I chose. As the metaphor goes, "save the best for last". Dr. Nomoto is the very best. He's extremely thorough, has very good communication skills, educates his paohtients, listens carefully, thoughtfully. My first appointment was one hour. After having additional follow up studies done, he spent two (2) hours with me and a loved one, on what I needed done. He explained the pros and cons of everything involved, what was less invasive, more so, and the consequences of both relating to my specific symptoms, findings and what the outcomes could be. I'm so grateful I chose Dr. Nomoto to do my surgery. He was never in a rush when he visited me in the hospital. He even took walks with me each day he came in. My surgery took eight hours to complete, was very involved. Even after I was discharged, he was easily accessible. It has been that way ever since. Compared to the other referrals I got, none came close to everything he did or offered. Edward Nomoto, MD, is the very best of the best! Thanks, Dr. Eddie.
Had a consultation with Dr. Nomoto today regarding a low back issue. He was very patient and answered EVERY question thoughtfully and taking all the time necessary to explain. Not to mention, his office staff is very resourceful. They had all my imaging and records together within minutes, with little effort because they appear to operating in the current century. It's refreshing.
