we offer a level of expertise that places us among Southern California’s best.
At St. Jude, our nationally-respected St. Jude Heritage Medical Group orthopedic
surgeons are at the forefront of creating better solutions for knee, hip,
shoulder, foot, ankle and hand pain—from innovative therapies to
restore strength and movement, to new minimally-invasive surgeries.
We are recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the country’s
top performing hospitals in hip and knee replacement and orthopedics,
and by the Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals
In addition, St. Jude Medical Center and St. Jude Heritage Medical Group

total hip and knee replacement, the highest distinction available from
the country’s premier health care accrediting body. St. Jude is
one of only 62 hospitals in the nation and eight hospitals in California
to meet the designation’s quality requirements.
