dr_roseDr. Rose was drawn the medical profession at an early age, and virtually everything since those formative years has taken him down the path to become one of the country’s top hand and upper extremity surgeons. A love of sports extended from days as captain of his high school ice hockey team. Graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of California, Los Angeles, he continued on at UCLA earning his M.D. and completing his internship and residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Following a fellowship in hand, upper extremity and microvascular surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Dr. Rose returned to Southern California, where he continues to share his expertise as a Clinical Instructor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the UCLA School of Medicine in Torrance, California and as a Volunteer Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. Dr. Rose is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and Board Certified in Hand Surgery as well. He has received many honors and awards and has authored numerous publications and book chapters. Additionally, his research in arthroscopy, sports medicine and hand surgery has been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national and international meetings. Many recall Dr. Rose making national news in July of 2000 with his reattachment of an artist’s severed arm, allowing the patient to return to his beloved vocation (Los Angeles Times, July 15, 2000). For Dr. Rose, however, one achievement remains paramount in his long list of professional accomplishments, board certifications and prestigious society memberships – his rapport with patients. His proven superior diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitative skills find meaning in the context of a genuine personal commitment to each individual patient. Dr. Rose views himself as a teammate in your treatment. He dedicates himself both personally and professionally to provide the highest level of care to ensure the patient’s fastest and most complete possible recovery.
