In My Own Words

A native Las Vegan, Parminder S. Kang, M.D. is happy to be back in his home town. He graduated from the Academy of Math Science and Applied Technology at Las Vegas' Clark High School. He then graduated with honors in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 2001. A knee injury in college led him to pursue a career in medicine. Dr. Kang received his medical degree from the State University of New York College of Medicine where he graduated at the top of his class (AOA) in 2005. He then completed his orthopaedic residency at the Baylor College of Medicine in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center in 2010. During his residency, he received the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma Best Teaching Resident award. After completing his general orthopaedic training, he obtained a prestigious fellowship for an additional year of training in Adult Reconstruction and Hip Preservation at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri in 2011. During his fellowship, Dr. Kang worked directly with surgeons and researchers who were instrumental in developing the treatment protocol for hip problems. He also trained with Dr. Robert Barrack, one of the pioneers in bringing hip resurfacing to the United States. Throughout his clinical training, Dr. Kang has done research on various topics such as proprioception following total joint replacement surgery and the effects of metal-on-metal hips. He has been published in peer review journals such as the Journal of Orthopedics. He has also authored an instructional DVD about hip resurfacing with Dr. Robert Barrack and written review chapters on primary and revision total hip replacement. Dr. Kang is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the Arthroscopy Association of North America. His practice focuses on providing advanced conservative and surgical care to patients with hip and knee problems, particularly with injuries to the cartilage and/or labrum. He uses the newest techniques and cutting edge technologies to treat his patients. His subspecialty qualifications include: Minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty Hip resurfacing Hip arthroscopy Hip preservation procedures (pelvic osteotomy, surgical dislocation) Knee arthroscopy Minimally invasive total and partial knee arthroplasty Complex hip and knee revision surgery Dr. Kang is a certified diver and also enjoys hiking, power lifting, biking and playing softball. He is a big believer in giving back; in the spring of 2012 he went on a medical mission to Guatemala where he provided general orthopedic care, both surgical and non-surgical. He is also active in the community giving talks on hip and knee arthritis at various hospitals. Dr. Kang has been a valued member of Desert Orthopedic Center since 2012 when he was recruited by Dr. Todd Swanson to take over his practice.
