About Practice

When your hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, or hands fail to function as they should due to age, disease, injury, or accident, you want solutions that help restore your mobility. Dr. Raj Sinha, renowned expert in hip and knee replacements and cofounder of STAR Orthopaedics in Rancho Mirage and La Quinta, California, can help you regain functionality with an innovative, integrative program. Components of your customized program may include surgery, sports medicine, physical therapy, and techniques such as platelet-rich plasma or PRP injections and stem cell therapy.

Founded by Dr. Raj Sinha in 2008, the practice is staffed by experienced professionals, which has distinguished it far beyond the borders of the Coachella Valley. Patients come to one of our two offices in Rancho Mirage or La Quinta, knowing that they will receive state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical care along with the rehabilitation needed to regain mobility.

STAR Ortho was founded based on frustration with the ongoing corporatization of medicine, especially the way care was becoming impersonal. The clinic's goal has always been to emphasize the unique needs of each patient rather than trying to pigeonhole them into neat insurance packages. STAR Ortho is an industry trailblazer; the team has been the first in the Coachella Valley to perform cutting-edge surgery such as minimally invasive anterior hip replacement, robotic-assisted partial knee replacement, and customized total knee replacement. Dr. Jacob A. Spencer has joined STAR recently to provide the most advanced treatments in Sports Medicine, while Dr. Sinha continues to focus on the treatment of hip and knee arthritis.

To learn more about how the renowned experts at STAR Ortho can help you restore full mobility and alleviate your chronic pain, schedule a consultation appointment today.
