Physician Bio

As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in ACL injury, arthroscopy, hip and knee replacement, and open shoulder replacement, Dr. Sunny Cheung brings a high level of orthopedic care to the High Desert. In addition to attending Harvard, he completed an orthopedic sports surgery fellowship at University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Cheung chose to practice medicine in the High Desert after noting an increased need for local orthopedic services as so many residents were forced to leave the area for care. Dr. Cheung’s research has appeared in many national and international publications, and he has written for orthopedic textbooks both in the United States and internationally. He has also taken part in many research projects, and in 2011 he will present his most recent findings on rotator cuff pathology at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons annual meeting.

Dr. Cheung believes most orthopedic problems can be treated non-operatively and that surgery is the last resort. Nothing is more satisfying to him than seeing a patient recover from an orthopedic injury and feels fortunate to be in a field where we have the technology to restore patients back to their full potential.
