One of a kind Surgeon. His expertise is beyond compare
I can not say enough about Dr. Hosalkar, he has been a true blessing to my son Zackary, my family and me. My son and I have a rare Bone Disease called Multiple Hereditary Exostoses(MHE) and Dr. Hosalkar is one of the VERY few Doctors around that know anything about MHE. He has done both of my son's hips with a surgery that Dislocates the hip and then he restores the hip. My son went 12 years without barely any movement in his hips and now he has 100% movement. Night and Day difference. He has also performed that same surgery on my right hip. Through out the 4 years we have been with Dr. H he has perform many surgeries for Zack & I and all with great success... He his like family to us. He is always there for us. I have recommended him to many and all have come back to me with Great Thanks, loving him just as much as we do. If I had my way Dr. Hosalkar would be my everything Doctor, the only Doctor I would go see... There is not enough "stars" to rate him because he is beyond the very Best.
I was in a near death accident in Cabo San Lucas Mexico riding a zipline..two years later I still can't bend my left knee. But with God and an excellent Dr... Situations can be resolved. Dr. Hosalkar is an excellent man on top of great surgeon.
I was an 11 year old girl who arrived to Rady's Children Hospital here in San Diego . I was diagnosed with Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis by Dr.Hosalkar and was told that my femur had dislocated and because my mom waited too long to take to a doctor the head of my femur had a shape just like a pear and it needed to be reshaped. I needed surgery not only on my right hip but also in my left hip and both knees.My right femur was reshaped and placed back and has nails going in the lateral side all the way down to my mid thigh, a nail was put in my left hip to prevent a similar slip. My right knee cap was misplaced due to a prior fall in school and a nail was put on the side of my knee to keep it on the right place, my left knee was stapled to stop it from growing letting my right leg grow because of the slipped femur my right leg was shorter than my left leg. It's been 6 years going on 7 since Dr.Hosalkar and his team in Rady's Children did a magnificent job on me. Now I am an 16 years old almost 17 and almost a senior in high school and considering a career in ortho and since December 2011 I have been so thankful to Dr.Hosalkar . If you ever read this Dr.Hosalkar, Thank You Thank You so much for making a 11 year old girl safe and hopeful during the worst times for me and my mom.

As a commercial Boeing 757 pilot, Matthew Halstead was responsible for carefully guiding 255,000 pounds of metal through the air at 600 MPH. He did it well, and he did it with precision. But the accident that would prove to be the life-changing event for Halstead didn’t involve giant aircraft hurtling through space. The things that changed his life on a balmy Bahamian night on December 12, 2013 was a motorized Razor Scooter and a pothole.
A crushed ankle and a damaged hip. That was the reality that Jonathan Hoehn, 22, faced one year ago this month after suffering a motorcycle accident in San Diego. He was rushed to a local hospital where they immediately performed surgery on him to repair the critical damage. The bones mended, but the pain remained. “The doctor told me that after six months, I should be well enough to go back to work,” Hoehn related. “But my ankle and hip were still killing me, still very painful.”

Thank you Dr Hosalkar for a successful hip preservation surgery and helping me avoid a hip replacement earlier than I want!
Snyder visited the SDSU Health Center and the orthopedist there referred her to Dr. Harish Hosalkar, a renowned Southern California specialist in pediatric, adolescent and adult hip preservation and reconstruction, deformity correction, limb reconstruction, and orthopedic trauma.
Dr. Hosalkar diagnosed a massive symptomatic labral tear in her left hip. The labrum is a fibrocartilage rim that surrounds the hip joint and gives it stability. This cartilage seals the joint, deepens the socket and protects the joint by decreasing external impact to the joint. A tear to the labrum causes tremendous pain and athletic people are particularly susceptible to this injury.
Dr Hosalkar: Thank you for successfully preserving my hip and helping me get back to all my activities again!

Thank you Dr Hosalkar for taking care of my broken elbow! And being available for the children in north county
Dr. Hosalkar is truly amazing. So professional and kind. His understanding of my injury, knowledge what needs to be done, taking the time to explain everything and compassion was wonderful. You knows he cares!! After our first meeting I told the staff how nice he was and they said he is that way with everyone.
I had 2 bad breaks in my ankle and he wanted to avoid surgery – I was to follow his directions – which I did have now healed because of him.
I recommend him 200 percent. He is also a orthopedic pediatric doctor.
Thank you Dr Hosalkar for fixing my leg and giving me ‘the worlds most beautiful cast’!!!
He is one of the best Ortho-Surgeon in town !
Dr.Hosalkar gave us one of the best experience. My dad (visiting USA) got hit by a car due to reckless driving and had acute tibial plateau fracture. Doctor Hosalkar and his team performed surgical fixation in his left knee and treated for the same. His office and staffs were so friendly and accomodated us knowing the gravity of our situation. Dr. Hosalkar was thoroughly professional and deeply knowledgeable who explained my dad before each and every treatment/procedure. He ensured my dad understood and felt comfortable with each step. I felt lucky to have met Dr.Hosalkar at the right moment and definitely recommend him to my colleagues and family who suffer from hip & joint accidents. He is one of the best Ortho-Surgeon in town !

Smoking and Ankle fracture is not a good combination!

Many Many thanks
Dr Hosalkar is the best orthopedic surgeon you would ever meet! I thank him for his excellent care.
I would highly recommend Dr Hosalkar!!
We would highly recommend Dr. Hosalkar!
My daughter needed surgery on her foot to remove a piece of a sewing needle that had lodged in the bottom of her foot. The emergency room doctor referred us to Dr. Hosalkar when he could not remove it with a local anesthetic. Dr. Hosalkar agreed to see us the very next day and scheduled her surgery within two days. He explained everything in detail and gave her three options. He took plenty of time with her. We never felt rushed while in his office. He and his staff were extremely pleasant, personable and professional. Surgery was short and successful and she is on the road to recovery. We would highly recommend Dr. Hosalkar!
Hip Fracture in a known smoker is not a good problem to have.
Dr Hosalkar helped me to successfully get the fracture healed and walk normal again.
I am a Teenager with badly broken collar bone!! Here’s my story….
Dr Hosalkar was the first one to diagnose my hip problem and fix it!!
My name is Jenel Kadlick and I am an active 33 year old mother of two little girls.
I’ve been an avid runner for 8 years, however the past three years I have gone from running to barely being able to walk. After I had my first child I started back into marathon training and soon I realized something was just not right, I had a lot of low back pain at first, went into Physical Therapy and was told I needed to strengthen my core. Six months into strengthening and running I was still having pain and to the point it held me back from running at times, I was told it was my SI joint and I had countless cortisone injections, then my pain really started to get worse, and I started having groin pain and deep buttock pain. I finally had to stop running altogether a year into my pain journey. I remember being on holiday in Italy and in crippling pain walking through the Vatican, not how I wanted to remember Italy or live my life.
Fast forward to a year and a half later and another pregnancy, I was in tremendous pain, I decided it was time to find the right doctor to help me, all the doctors I saw prior to Dr. Hosalkar would just tell me I needed to deal with the pain and stop running, being only 33 I thought that was a crazy thing to tell someone! I finally found a great GP who guided me in the direction towards Dr. Hosalkar, and boy am I glad he did!
Dr. Hosalkar was the first doctor I had seen that took me serious and took the time to find out what was wrong. I knew the pain was now coming from my hip, but all other doctors did not believe me and wouldn’t to do anything except injections. Dr. Hosalkar took the time to diagnosis me and was the first doctor that told me he could get me back into running! He took the time to explain everything to me in detail, he made sure I was well informed about my diagnosis and what needed to be done. I thought, “sign me up, let’s fix this”! I had hope for the first time in 3 years!
Here I am, 6 weeks into recovery from hip preservation surgery and I am already feeling 100% better than pre-surgery! I can actually handle doing more now, and don’t wake up in pain every morning! It amazes me how much better I feel so soon into recovery! I’m so glad I found Dr. Hosalkar! He saved me from years of pain. I’m on the road to a quick recovery and plan to be running soon! Thank you, Dr. Hosalkar!
Dr Hosalkar successfully fixed both my broken arms, He is the best!
Dr H changed my life for the better….He is the best.
Ankle Fracture – Patient Testimonial
Dr Hosalkar got me back on my feet again. I am a 40 year-old and suffered a complex ankle fracture with risk factors including chronic smoking that made it a very challenging case for healing. Dr Hosalkar helped fix my ankle perfectly and additionally helped me with ultrasound based bone stimulation to allow my bones to heal well and get me back to full function. I cannot thank Dr Hosalkar enough for what he did to get me to heal and back to my life!!
I was referred to Dr. Holsakar by another orthopedic surgeon since my hip was in good enough condition to be treated rather than replaced. I had both a cam and pincer impingement, a torn and detached labrum and some damage to the cartilage. Dr. H spent a lot of time discussing the procedure and the prognosis for recovery. The procedure he recommended to me was the full open surgical dislocation and debridement surgery. He told me I would be back to being unrestricted in my activities in 10-12 weeks. Many told me that this was unrealistic and it would be months to a year before I could resume normal activities. By the way, I had my surgery two weeks before my 53rd birthday. Well, 11.5 weeks after my procedure I was skiing and with no problems associated with my repaired hip. Dr. H is a very talented doctor who believes in getting you back to doing what you love to do quickly is important. I would highly recommend him to anyone contemplating hip surgery.
After a nasty fall on my right hip on Christmas Eve, I found myself faced with orthopedic surgery to my hip joint to place 3 screws in the bone to stabilize the fracture. Dr. Harish Hosalkar was the on-call doctor performing the surgery on Christmas morning, and I couldn’t have asked for a more caring, informed, understanding, knowledgeable doctor than Dr. Hosalkar. I had just flown across the country to visit family, and Scripps Encinitas said that Dr. Hosalkar was the doctor who was on-call. I would highly recommend Dr. Hosalkar to anyone who has need of an orthopedic surgeon. You just know when someone is a good person, and he is one of the special ones!
Like many others before me, I can say thisis one amazing man. He doesnt feel above you, better than you or like you are a bore or bother to him. He gives his personal cell and email to all of his patients to reach him any time and is actually so glad when you call with a question, rather than waiting until the office opens. He is no longer with Rady Children’s He owns the Center for Hip Preservation and Children’s Orthopaedics and his assistant Kris is there too, and she will also give you her cell # He has an office in Sand Diego and Another in Encinitas, making him the only Pediatric Orthopedist in North County. He is worth the drive no matter where he is. I called him one evening when my daughter broke her arm, his response was where should I meet you? He has many Hospital affiliations, I learned so he can go everywhere. He is kind, caring and will spend an hour with you if you want, so he can explain it all. everything for you, your teen or your baby. He even reopened his adolescent and adult practice now seeing all ages. CALL HIM UP any time…. Find him practicing out of Oasis 858-571-0606 (office #)…. he is waiting for your call… i will always take my baby girl to him as long as i have his cell # i can find him!
Dr. Hosalkar is truly one of the finest physicians we have ever known. Our son has an extremely complicated degenerative hip condition that we have struggled to find the proper course of treatment for. We have been to several children’s hospitals in the US and so from the first appointment, we could see that there is something very special about this Doctor. He treated us with compassion, he recognized our frustration from the years of not getting answers; he spoke so kindly and directly to our son, and he was also careful to have him leave the room when we needed to discuss more intense, difficult elements of his treatment; such discretion. The hip examine is typical but Dr Hosalkar only looks at the face and eyes of his patient to detect the slightest hint of pain to be able to determine range of motion. Any other ortho I have known needed our son to vocalize his pain at every turn and flex of the leg. Not Dr. Hosalkar. He is intuitive, such an expert… We entrusted him with our son for an 8 hour surgery to help repair his hip and from first appointment, scheduling, pre-op, surgery, hospital, and the long LONG months of recovery, Dr. H and his assistant Kris took such great care of us. Our son can finally walk and play without pain after years of suffering and we are beyond thankful.
Dr. Hosalker took wonderful care of my son after we found out that he had Perthes Disease in his hip. In July of 2011 my son had Triple pelvic osteotomy surgery done by Dr. Hosalker. Now two years later, my 8 year old son is an amazing athlete. You would never know he had anything wrong with him. This man is sent from God. Truly an answer to prayer.
Dr. Hosalkar is a gem! Besides being an expert in his field, he took the time with my daughter and our family to sympathize and support us through our treatment. He’s very realistic, yet optimistic about diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately he’s no longer at the mega ortho group, but I hope he opens a new practice soon!
Dr H is undoubtedly the best hip surgeon that u could ever meet. My 16 year old daughter had been in severe hip pain and almost disabled for more than a year. Several specialists that we saw could not figure out what was going on. Dr H not only diagnosed her after a careful clinical exam in 10 minutes, but also soon fixed her with hip preserving surgery. My daughter was back in ballet within 3 months. God bless dr h and his team at Rady children’s hospital.
Best pediatric orthopedist you could meet!!
I highly recommend this dr. I am a very straight forward person and when I say something I mean it. He did two different surgeries on my 11 year old daughter t the time her hips an knees. My daughter healed beautifully and fast. He was kind, understanding and cares a lot about my daughter as a patient. He saved my daughters 20-40 years of pain and agony because both knee and hip were in bad condition. It is now 2 years later and the job on her knees were done so perfect that she needs to take the medal plates out her knees soon because it worked way faster and effectively then we thought. Thank you Dr. Holsalkar.. We appreciate you very much glad you came to San Diego.. See you soon.. Rady’s Children’s is the best
I can’t put into words the confidence and peace we feel with this fantastic doctor. His ability to communicate with parent AND child are unparalelled.My daughter is so comfortable with him and trusts him completely. This is not an average occurance for her.She has MHE,a fairly rare bone diesase, I would do anything to ensure he is the surgeon for her.
Dr Hosalkar is simply the best children’s orthopedic surgeon you would ever meet. My advice is…..if your child has an orthopedic problem, take him or her to DR H….he is famous as DR H at children’s hospital of san Diego.
