Bruce M. Albert, M.D., the founder of Elite Orthopedics & Sports Medicine,
is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with more than 20 years of clinical
experience. A community-centered orthopaedist who has practiced in Irvine,
California as a solo practitioner for over 15 years, Dr. Albert is steadfastly
committed to offering his patients exceptional care and restoring their
quality of life. With a focus on implementing the latest in proven effective
technology, tools and methodologies, Dr. Albert has achieved a well-respected
and highly regarded reputation within the local medical community as well
as among his patients.
“Dr. Albert has always subscribed to a philosophy whereby the treatment
plan he recommends to patients is exactly the same one he would recommend
to a family member.”
Dr. Albert focuses his practice predominantly on a wide range of sports
injuries, and particularly on injuries and disorders involving the knee
and shoulder in the recreational athlete. He has previously worked closely
with the athletic departments of Fullerton High School and Irvine Valley College.
He prides himself on being an extremely ethical physician who exhausts
all non-operative measures before resorting to surgery. When surgery is,
however, the only option available to achieve the desired result, Dr.
Albert has had the experience and technical proficiency that has led to
patients reporting impressive and striking improvements after treatment.
Dr. Albert’s surgical expertise relates primarily to knee and shoulder
arthroscopy (having performed more than 6000 of these procedures during
his career), but he also treats other orthopedic conditions, including
fractures and arthritis.
