About Coastal Ortho

Coastal Ortho is a premier orthopedics practice specializing in sports medicine, hand surgery, and orthopedic surgery since 1971. Located in El Segundo and Torrance, California, the practice provides an all-inclusive suite of services, from physical and aquatic therapy to in-office minor surgeries. We also offer alternative conservative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.

The experienced orthopedic surgeons work directly with patients to create individualized treatment plans that effectively relieve chronic pain and restore musculoskeletal function. By following a multi-modality approach, the team can provide complete care for every patient.

The team invests in the latest technology to perform minimally invasive total joint replacements, knee and hip arthroscopy, spine surgery, hand and foot surgery, fracture care, and more. These minimally invasive techniques frequently result in less damage, shorter recovery times, and a lower risk of infection than traditional open procedures.

Patient satisfaction is a top priority for the specialists at Coastal Ortho. From orthopedic surgery to physical therapy, each department strives to promote a compassionate, relaxing environment for their patients. Every specialist, many of whom have more than 10 years of experience, encourages their patients to ask questions, voice their concerns, and inquire about cutting-edge treatments.

With multiple affiliations through outpatient surgery centers, major hospitals, and rehabilitation programs, as well as a mini-surgical suite onsite, Coastal Ortho has everything patients need to enjoy a successful recovery. Call or schedule an appointment online today to learn more.

Our History

Why did you change your
name to Coastal Ortho?

Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group was founded in 1971 as a partnership between revered surgeons Dr. John Stratton, retired, and Dr. John O’Hara, deceased, and later Dr. Richard Shrader, retired. With the South Bay’s two main hospitals located in Torrance, it remains the primary hub of medical care for the area. Although our Torrance office is our main location, as our medical group and the South Bay have grown, we found a need to expand into the northern portion of the South Bay. El Segundo is a thriving center of new growth and many of our patients are better served with our presence in that region. We are therefore proud to announce the opening our new and beautiful contemporary, state-of-the-art El Segundo Office @Elevon. With this expansion we believe that a city specific name, such as Torrance Orthopaedic, was somewhat limiting. Hence, after considering various options, “Coastal Ortho” came into being. This name reflects the love and appreciation of our home and lifestyle.
