In My Own Words
Dr. John Velyvis, MD is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and hip and knee specialist. He is the world's leading expert on robotic-assisted partial knee resurfacing procedures and has completed more than 700 successful surgeries since its FDA approval in 2006. Dr. Velyvis is passionate about preserving as much of the knee as he can when doing any surgery since it can shorten recovery time, increase mobility post-surgery and is less painful for patients. His training in biomedical engineering at Harvard University gives him the perfect background for an orthopedic surgeon. He attended Columbia University's School of Medicine and has now been practicing medicine for more than a decade. He is a member of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and California Orthopedic Association.
