This doctor ruined my life. After spending a lot of time researching ortho doctors online Dr. Nissanoff appeared to have good reviews. Based on the results of my total hip replacement a year and a half post op I have no idea why. My recovery was the most painful experience in my life and I'm still living in daily post op muscular pain 3 years later. Somehow when he replaced the bone he damaged some nerves or tissue, plus he cut my femur too short. Therapy has made very little improvement. Also his office is terrible at handling billing. A year and a half later they are still trying to recover payment for a procedure that I was supposedly "in network" for, recently forwarding a $12k balance to Collections without even informing me. They lost stuff, misrepresented coverage, and billed using out of State addresses. If you need a hip replacement I would go somewhere else. I had my second hip replaced by Dr Joel Matta in Santa Monica several months ago and although I paid out of pocket upfront (and eventually got partially reimbursed by my insurance) I was walking in three days later without restrictions and the pain was minimal. The anterior approach is way better than the posterior, night and day. I received correspondence from Dr. Nissanoff's lawyer in June of '14 demanding that I take my Yelp review down due to libel and slander. I want the populous to know that I re-evaluated my review, made sure to include only factual information, and I asked to meet with Dr. Nissanoff in person (on his dime) to review my complaints and determine their merit. Since this time they have decided to sue me in LA Superior Court for a trumped up balance they invented once they realized they couldn't sue me for slander. After alot of research and contacting former patients who have had similar experiences, I have come to realize that Dr. Nissanoff has developed a system that permits him to invent patient balances by changing billing codes after the fact and then uses the court system to bully and harass patients who object to this unconscionable practice of 'balance billing'. I am the only one to date who is standing up to his challenge and I eventually beat him at his expense. By all means see this Dr. -at your own risk- but unless you want to become a statistic like me I would get EVERYTHING IN WRITING before doing anything because they have a history of hurting those they should be helping.

Dr. Nissanoff is the best othdopedic surgeon I know of. I goto him every time I break one of my bones (which happens a lot). I remember myself falling off a skateboard and breaking my leg. It hurt like crazy until Dr. Nissanoff put a cast on it. I had the cast on for about 3-4 weeks and now I don't even know which leg I broke. Thank you Dr. Nissanoff for the wonderful time and care you gave me. I can't thank you enough for allowing me to walk again. I hope you liked the timeshare in Cabo, Mexico as a present.

Dr. Nissanoff has made a major difference in my life, he accurately diagnosed my condition before he saw the MRI. He is honest, supportive and listens to your concerns. In my case he thoroughly explained my options and has supported me through non evasive methods of recovery. His staff is delightful to work with, they are friendly, accommodating and courteous. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone who wants a doctor that is professional, someone they can trust and that is not in medicine just for the money.

Great bedside manner. He spends time with you. I actually noticed that he ahd no clocks in his office. When I mentioned that to him, he said that that was done on purpose- " no one should be looking at the clock while treating patients. You need to spend whatever time is needed with each person" I was increadibly impressed. He actually spent over an hour explaining everything to me. He is super conservative and gave me all options including surgery , but did not recommend it at this time. I have had great results, thanks to him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a careing , knowledgeable surgeon who is looking out for your best interest. One more thing, he is so not in it for the money like all the other surgeons I have seen. My mother needed orthopedic care and had no insurance. He wound up treating her at no cost. He is a true find!

This is one of the finest doctors you will find. He is a gem. He spent time explaining to me all the different procedures available. He promised me a minimally invassive procedure and delivered it beautifully. I have no pain any more. I am back to work and enjoying life. I was recommended to use him by other very satisfied patients. I am recommending him to anyone who wants a caring doctor and great results.

I really like this doctor. He spent time with my husband and me. He helped us both to understand what our problems were. I'm suprised with the reviews that say he is quick to do surgery. I've found the opposite. Only as a last resort. He does refer you to other doctors that have the possibility to lead to surgery, but surgery is always the option of the patient. We were new patients and he spent a lot of time with us. He does talk really fast, so pay attention. Ask questions if you don't understand. He was very open to any questions my husband and I asked. This was a first for me. He also was the first doctor to believe me when I said I couldn't tolerate anti-inflammatories (aleve, motrin,etc.) I tell doctors I can't take them because of my blood pressure and what do they do, give me a script for ibuprofen. Dr Nissanoff listened to me and gave me a script that helped my pain and it wasn't an anti-inflammatory. I like him. If you don't, move on to another doctor.

I found Dr. Nissanoff to be a bad listener. He had some sort of arrangement with my attorney so he did give me detailed reports of my condition. However, he prescribed 'dubious' treatments on me which I found later had little or no value. I didn't find his diagnosis to be as insightful as some of the other orthopedics that I have dealt with. He is clearly in it for the money. At most, he is a mediocre orthopedic. He definitely does not come recommended in my books.
