 Raj K. Sinha, M.D., Ph.D

Dr. Sinha, M.D., Ph.D. has a results-oriented personality. It explains, simply and elegantly, why he decided to specialize in orthopedics. He relocated to the Coachella Valley in 2003 and specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery. 

He is helping to realize his dreams with cutting-edge surgery and research in the areas of bone-metal interaction, bone regeneration and robotic surgery. For example, he was the first in the Coachella Valley and one of the first surgeons in the world to perform Makoplasty, a robotic arm assisted partial knee replacement. He has helped to design hip and knee replacement components, including one of the most popular hip replacement stems in the world.
