Dr. Rounaghi sums up the appeal of his specialty in orthopedics this way: “I enjoy diagnosing a problem, formulating a treatment plan and watching a patient improve after being treated.” Dr. Rounaghi, who derives satisfaction from working with patients to increase their long-term mobility, says “I like to perform operations and enjoy seeing patients improve following surgery.”  The former high school basketball player enjoys spending time with family, traveling and mountain biking in his off hours.

This provider spent the needed amount of time discussing my medical options for my knees. He convinced me to have a total knew replacement one at a time and gave the medical reasons for it. The process and path was made very clear. Dr. Rounaghi was excellent in his clear explanations, friendly, and showed a compassion for my care and well being. My wife was on the mark when she recommended Dr. Rounaghi as my orthopedic physician.

If you have orthopaedic issues, visit Dr. Rounaghi as he's kind, attentive and knowledgeable.
July 11, 2017
Dr Rounaghi is a very qualified Orthopedic Physician/Surgeon as such is in great demand with very limited appointments. In cases like mine which involved injury from a fall it was difficult to wait for treatment, however, I felt it was with the wait. Dr. Rounaghi was also on vacation during this time frame.
July 11, 2017
This doctor does listen and does answer your question, he tells you about the all the procedures that he will be doing and this is very important so you have an idea what will be done.

June 19, 2017
I've recommended Dr. Rounaghi to everyone I know who is contemplating a knee or hip replacement. He has the bestbedside manner, a pleasing personality, and is an excellentsurgeon. That is why I'm returning to have him replace myhip, since he did such a great job on my knee three years ago.Those in the area not only know his name but also have had positive results with multiple surgeries performed by him.His sunny disposition, humble attitude, and expertise make him a truly gifted doctor. He's so popular that it takesa longer period of time to get an appointment, schedulean operation, and spend sitting in the waiting room, filledwith people all seeing this one doctor. Other doctors couldtake lessons from this fine physician in learning how totreat patients
June 15, 2017

Dr. Rounaghi is an exceptional surgeon. He replaced both my hips and in each case the pain was well managed, recovery time was fast, and the incisions small. In addition, his bedside manner is great: very friendly, approachable and caring. His strong reputation is well-deserved.

Yesterday was my last post-op visit to Dr. Rounaghi since my hip replacement in May 2016. The whole experience was so well-planned and stress free that I almost wish I needed some other body part replaced so I can continue to be under Dr. Rounaghi's care.
May 09, 2017
Dr. Rounaghi replaced both of my hips in 2016 which has given me back a great quality of life. I did a lot of research and asked around prior to my surgeries and found everyone had great things to tell me about him. I carry his business card with me and have referred others to use him as their orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Rounaghi took the time necessary in 2009 to explain the surgical procedure for a hip replacement and was able to put me at ease.
