About Me

Dr. F. John Hajaliloo is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and pediatrics. He has offices in Long Beach and Torrance.

Fondly referred to as Dr. Haj or Dr. H, he treats children as well as recreational and professional athletes, dancers and adults for a wide variety of orthopedic problems related to sports and overuse injuries, trauma, fracture care, and arthritis.

He received his medical degree from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California and a residency in orthopaedic surgery at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Haj is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

He served as the medical director of orthopedics at MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center and medical director of pediatric orthopedics at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach. Dr. Haj continues training both orthopedic and pediatric residents at UCI Medical School and Long Beach Medical Center. He has an excellent reputation in the medical community and is honored to care for the orthopedic issues of many fellow physicians and their families.

Dr. Haj spends abundant time to get to know his patients and find the most individualized treatments for their healing, whether it be physical therapy, acupuncture, nutrition, medication, or injections.

I believe strongly in listening and delivering skillful, empathetic care and place a big emphasis on injury prevention. Once you have been injured, I will help get you back to your pre-injury state as quickly and safely as possible. After you have returned to your pre-injury state we will discuss how to improve your body with proper exercise and nutrition.

Dr. F. John Hajaliloo

Dr. Haj has a very conservative approach. Surgery is used as a last resort and then only the most advanced, minimally invasive, but well-proven techniques are used. He is trusted by fellow physicians for his skillful surgical techniques and balanced conservative approach towards orthopedic problems.

In his free time Dr. Haj enjoys traveling with his wife and twin boys, both who are both actively involved in sports. He has never stopped fostering his childhood passion to build and work intricately with his hands.
