About Me

Dr. Shafagh aka Shan Monazzam is fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacements. He is specially trained in robotic assisted total and partial knee surgeries, anterior hip replacements and complex joint revisions surgeries.

He received his medical degree from UC San Diego School of Medicine and residency in orthopaedic surgery from UC Davis School of Medicine. He completed his fellowship in adult reconstructive orthopaedics at University of Chicago Medicine with Dr. Henry Finn, a world renowned primary and revision orthopaedic surgeon, and Dr. Hue Luu, a leading expert in robotic assisted joint replacements. Dr. Monazzam is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons (ABOS).

Dr. Monazzam grew up in Southern California. His parents, physical yherapist Jafar Monazzam and director Sheepa Seekaroudy, established South Gate Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Center in 1994. They instilled the idea of providing quality care in areas with the greatest need.  After completing his training and coming back home, Dr. Monazzam and his wife Alicia Monazzam NP decided to follow in his parents’ footsteps in establishing Advanced Care Orthopedics in the same community they had been serving for more than 25 years.
