Dr. Andrew Yun - HIPS

Dr. Yun is the Medical Director of Joint Replacement Services at St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica, CA and one of the best hip replacement surgeons in the U.S., if not the world. After a failed hip resurfacing procedure by another surgeon in 2009, Dr. Yun performed a total hip revision on my left hip in 2012 and a total hip replacement on my right side the following year. I wouldn’t be biking, surfing, practicing yoga or just plain walking if it weren’t for Dr. Yun.


Dr. Bert Mandelbaum - KNEES

Named to the Super Doctor list for 12 years running, Member of the FIFA Medical Committee and the Assistant Medical Director for Major League Soccer & the Team Physician for the US National Team, Bert Mandelbaum is one of the top orthopedic surgeons in the country specializing in knees. That’s why he’s looked after mine for the last dozen years and I wouldn’t be practicing yoga, cycling and surfing if it weren’t for his thoughtful care and the support of the entire team at the Kerlan-Jobe Institute.


Dr. Thomas Knapp - SHOULDERS

Dr. Knapp loves shoulders. That’s all he does and he absolutely kills it for me. Both of mine have been pretty torn up and he and the team at Kerlan-Jobe have been so strategic about my care and rehabilitation. I can’t thank them enough. And for good measure Dr. Knapp’s also been on the Super Doctor list for over a decade running.

Dr. George Wu - CARDIOLOGY

In 2007 I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation, a random, rarely occurring irregular heartbeat. That really threw me off. I was lean and fit and the next thing I knew my heart was beating like a jazz band’s rhythm section. Since then Dr. Wu and all the caregivers at Pacific Heart Institute have delivered the right treatment, kept tabs on me and on the rare occasion I do have an A-Fib episode, they’re at the ready to bring everything back to 4/4 timing!
