Douglas J. Abeles MD & Associates in Castro Valley, California, provides specialty services in sports medicine, spinal surgery, and general orthopaedics. Dr. Abeles has compiled a team of caregivers attuned to patient care, providing access to a multitude of specialties, including joint replacement, neurology, physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic care, all of which complement orthopaedic care.
The practice sees patients from age eight and up, anyone with an orthopaedic issue, such as sports and work injuries, as well as injuries sustained in automobile and other accidents. Dr. Abeles specializes in minimally invasive orthopaedic surgical techniques, repairing damage to shoulders, knees, spine, hips, and ankles.
Though he still performs conventional surgical techniques when these offer the best outcomes, Dr. Abeles prefers leading-edge techniques. Tiny incisions and minimal tissue impact assure the fastest recovery time for his patients.
Because many of his patients are physically active and are involved in physical labor and various sports activities, Dr. Abeles is aware of their need to return to previous performance levels, and he tailors his approach to meet this criterion whenever possible. His reputation brings in patients from throughout the United States, as well as internationally.
