A graduate of UCLA Medical School, Dr. Forman went from the “PAC 10” to the “Ivy League” to complete his orthopaedic residency at Columbia University in New York. In 1991, he was awarded Columbia’s highest honor when he was chosen Orthopaedic Resident of the Year.

Dr. Forman continued his education with a Traveling Fellowship in foot and ankle surgery, and a Fellowship at Southern California Sports Medicine, specializing in knees and shoulders. He went into private practice with California Orthopaedic Specialists in 1992. Dr. Forman is Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery, and is a Diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners. He is a current fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.

Dr. Forman has a gift of helping many of his patients return to a better way of life. His love for medicine, and above all – people – shows with every patient he sees. There’s one patient Dr. Forman looks forward to meeting – You.

It is very difficult to maintain a busy practice and still keep sight of the importance of seeing patients as individuals. At California Orthopaedic Specialists, we accept this challenge. We feel there will always be patients who demand the best. We don’t want to be the doctors you have to see, we want to be the doctors you choose to see.
