      Dr. Alan Zhang is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder. In the hip, he frequently treats labral tears, FAI (femoroacetabular impingement) and various athletic injuries. He is a specialist in advanced hip arthroscopy for labral repair and reconstruction as well as hip preservation. In the knee, he treats ACL tears, meniscus tears and cartilage injuries- regularly performing ACL reconstruction and meniscus repairs. In the shoulder, he treats rotator cuff tears and dislocation/instability.
