The Institute of Orthopaedic Surgery

This website serves to provide our patients with information on our physicians, answers to frequently asked questions, and important information related to upcoming surgeries.

IOS is a premiere Orthopedic Ambulatory Surgery Center established by the physicians of Desert Orthopaedic Center. Our physicians provide care for every orthopaedic subspecialty area including sports medicine, arthroscopic knee and shoulder repair, microscopic hand surgery, pediatric orthopedics, scoliosis and spinal deformities, and foot and ankle reconstruction. Please ask your doctor if your surgery is appropriate for outpatient surgery.


Opened in May 2002, the Institute of Orthopaedic Surgery is fully licensed and accredited by The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. (www.AAAHC.org )

Accreditation measures the quality of an organization’s performance and services against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization, as well as a thorough review by the Accreditation Association's expert surveyors, who themselves have extensive experience in the ambulatory health care environment. The accreditation certificate is a symbol that an organization is committed to providing high-quality health care by measuring up to the Accreditation Association's high standards.
