“The doctors here are so awesome! Dr. Sasaura has done two ACL reconstructions on each knee and I have referred him to anyone needing a great knee doctor. I had two ACL reconstructions before Sasaura and they both failed. My knees were a mess and he fixed them! Can't tell you how grateful I am for his knowledge and wonderful bedside manners. Believe me - the doctors here are great and are on the cutting edge of technology!” –Shawn W.
“A friend who is a physician referred me to this practice many years ago because of hip problems. I have had a perfect arthroscopic hip surgery performed by Dr. Greene, a perfect total hip replacement surgery by Dr. Sasaura, and a dozen visits for cortisone injections and follow-up appointments throughout my time as a patient. I'm a huge fan of these guys and Summit. They are the best!” –Mark S.
“I absolutely love the doctors and the receptionist is always so nice at check-in. Dr. Greene is amazing and has such a great bedside manner. He did a great job on my surgery and explaining everything at my pre-op and what happened during surgery at my post-op with photos. I will continue to use Summit Orthopedic Specialists for my orthopedic issues." -Kim L.
“Wonderful experience with staff and doctors before, during, and after my hip replacement. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sausaora. He is a talented and personable surgeon. This is a rare combination, IMO. If you need surgery, don't think twice about using Summit Orthopedic Specialists.” -Liz W

“I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff was very friendly, fast and helpful. The girl at the front desk had my info in the computer before I could finish the paperwork; MA was awesome, the guy who came in to fit me with the air cast, even checking out... I'm so glad I found this place... If I have any more issues come up I will be going back here!! The office décor was very nice. I give my overall experience even though I was in pain, an A+.” -Marty D.
“Hands down the best orthopedic care I have ever had. I have had years of issues with a failed hip replacement from another doctor in another city. I was sent to Dr. Sasaura for a hip revision. Dr. Sausara fixed my hip. My life turned around once he became my orthopedist. He is also personable, caring, and explains everything that will happen. The staff is great. I am relieved to be a patient at a medical practice that treats their patients so well. I would highly recommend Dr. Sausara. –Melinda B.
We ask a lot of our knees. They carry our weight, allow us to walk, pivot, run, and absorb the impact of our steps and landings and falls. When they wear out, we feel it all over our bodies.
Total knee replacement alleviates that pain by resurfacing the areas of the knee that are damaged or diseased and replacing them with a prosthetic. At Summit Orthopedic Specialists in Sacramento, total knee replacement is a high-tech outpatient procedure. Our surgeons make sure our surgeries are as minimally invasive as possible to reduce recovery times.Total Knee Replacement
Everyone has an opinion about when or if you should get a hip replacement, from friends and loved ones to your neighbor down the block. But not everyone is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip replacement in Sacramento.
Summit Orthopedic Specialists has a few of those, and they’ll be happy to help. If you experience consistent hip pain during your normal daily activities, our hip specialists can help ease your burden and answer your questions. And, unlike your neighbor, they have Ph.Ds and years of surgical experience to guide their answers.Total Hip Replacement
You have a lot riding on your shoulders. Don’t let shoulder pain add to your burden. If you experience persistent or worsening shoulder pain that doesn’t go away with therapy or rest.
It may be time to look into an orthopedic solution like total shoulder replacement. Sacramento’s Summit Orthopedic Specialists have innovative and customizable solutions to minimize the downtime of shoulder replacement. We use hi-tech methods to perform these surgeries on an outpatient basis to save you money and encourage a speedy recovery.Total Shoulder Replacement
Summit Orthopedic Specialists understands that nobody wants to spend the night in a hospital when they can recover in the comfort of their own homes.
That’s why, wherever possible, we create surgery plans that include outpatient joint surgery. From partial replacements to arthroscopic treatments to full knee replacements, our skilled surgeons can make life-changing enhancements to your joints without long and expensive hospital stays. Get back to normal faster with outpatient joint surgery at Summit!Outpatient Joint Surgery
Not every problem needs surgery to solve it. Sometimes, our doctors can provide joint pain relief through viscosupplement injections (also known as “gel” injections”).
These injections add hyaluronic acid into the joint to provide a cushion between the bones to reduce pain and discomfort. In Sacramento, Summit Orthopedic Specialists offers a wide variety of joint injections to reduce swelling, increase mobility, ease discomfort, prevent damage, and delay surgical intervention.Viscosupplement Injections
Make no mistake about it; our surgeons are incredibly precise, skillful, and detail-oriented.
But even the most practiced human surgeon has physical limitations. Robotic surgery reduces these limitations by giving our surgeons a powerful tool to make smaller cuts and more precise interventions than any human being could accomplish freehand: often with an accuracy of less than one millimeter from the plan! We are one of the first orthopedic practices in the country to train on many of these devices, and our surgeons instruct others around the country on how to embrace these robotic arms to improve patient outcomes.Robotic Surgery
Total knee replacement involves completely replacing the knee, but there are many cases where this is not medically necessary.
At Summit Orthopedic Specialists, partial knee replacement can often resolve the pain and symptoms our patients have with far less rehabilitation and recovery than a full knee replacement. By sparing the ligaments and only replacing what needs to be replaced, we can create a more “natural-feeling” knee that gets you back to mobility without pain faster.Partial Knee Replacement
