Amazing Dr. Finerman

Dr. Finerman is one of the most intelligent, kind, patient, intuitive and expert, experienced physicians I and my husband have ever met. He successfully replaced my husband's two knees and two hips (4 separate surgeries. Finerman successfully treated 5th metatarsal Jones fracture in me, without surgery. He is amazing and I owe so much to him. Alas he is now retired but he had tons of football and basketball players who owe him their career as he was also the team doctor for a top tier university. Amazing Dr Finerman, may there be more orthopedic surgeons like him in the future.

Dr. Finerman has made my retirement years fun following successful hip and double knee replacement surgeries. The care provided at UCLA and by Dr. Finerman are unsurpassed. Thank You to a remarkable man.

Nice man but I can't recommend his surgery for knee replacements

This is written a year post-op for a total knee replacement. The knee sounds like gravel, feels like a lead weight and is worse than before surgery.During surgery, there were problems but until I pinned the Dr. down during the first post-op checkup (almost 2 months later!!!), he denied there were any. The charts of vital signs taken during surgery showing on the computer screen behind him made him 'recall' the events. During the last year, there were problems with the knee but all he said was what he has said ever since my 1st appointment... 'Well, the x-rays look good; everyone heals at a different pace. Be patient.' The knee has become worse over time despite therapy and is now stiff, makes a lot of grinding and thumping noises, swells with exercise and collapses on occasion while walking. His resume' is excellent, his bedside manner is nice but, sadly, I can't go back to him for the other knee.
