Sumit H. Rana, M.D.
Meet Dr. Sumit Rana, a highly skilled orthopaedic surgeon who is fellowship-trained from Stanford University and specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery. Dr. Rana loves orthopaedics, and more specifically, joint replacement, because it allows him to make significant improvements in the quality of his patients’ lives by restoring their ability to perform many activities they could no longer perform, and by removing the debilitating pain with which they were living.
“Nothing gives me more joy than to hear a patient say the hip or knee replacement I performed has changed their life for the better,” says Dr. Rana. “I also enjoy being a doctor because it allows me to connect with patients and build life-long relationships by helping them in their time of need.” Dr. Rana comes to COS from The Orthopaedic and Spine Institute and, prior to that, from Kaiser Permanente. He attended USC for his undergraduate degree and medical school. In medical school, he was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society as well as graduated with “Highest Distinction” —the highest honor given at graduation. He completed his general surgery internship and orthopaedic surgery residence at UC San Diego. Additionally, he completed a fellowship in joint replacement at Stanford University. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and California Orthopaedic Association.
In his spare time, Dr. Rana enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children. As a proud alumnus, he follows USC football. He also loves traveling, snowboarding, eating good food and drinking fine wine.
