Nicholas E. Rose, M.D. has performed over 440 procedures at one of the
HOI facilities during 2016.
Dr. Rose is one of those rare individuals who was drawn to his profession
at an early age, and virtually everything since those formative years
has taken him down the path to become one of the country’s top hand
and upper extremity surgeons. A love of sports extended from days as captain
of his high school ice hockey team. Graduating Magna Cum Laude from the
University of California, Los Angeles, he continued on at UCLA earning
his M.D. and completing his internship and residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
Following a fellowship in hand, upper extremity and microvascular surgery
at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Dr. Rose
returned to Southern California, where he continues to share his expertise
as a clinical instructor of orthopaedic surgery at the UCLA School of
Medicine in Torrance, California and as a volunteer assistant clinical
professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine.
Dr. Rose is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and
board certified in hand surgery as well. He has received many honors and
awards and has authored numerous publications and book chapters. Additionally,
his research in arthroscopy, sports medicine and hand surgery has been
published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national and international meetings.
“Many recall Dr. Rose making national news in July of 2000 with his
reattachment of an artist’s severed arm, allowing the patient to
return to his beloved vocation (Los Angeles Times, July 15, 2000).”
For Dr. Rose, however, one achievement remains paramount in his long list
of professional accomplishments, board certifications and prestigious
society memberships – his rapport with patients. His proven superior
diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitative skills find meaning in the context
of a genuine personal commitment to each individual patient. Dr. Rose
views himself as a teammate in your treatment. He dedicates himself both
personally and professionally to provide the highest level of care to
ensure the patient’s fastest and most complete possible recovery.
