Dr. Michael Cann will be joining Keck Medicine of USC, and the practice, which will remain in its current location at 1808 Verdugo Blvd. in Glendale on the USC Verdugo Hills Hospital campus, will be known as USC Orthopaedic Surgery Associates – Glendale.
“I’m very pleased to join the USC team and to be able to provide my patients access to the world-class care and innovative research for which USC is known,” said Dr. Cann. “Our patients are the big winners here, since treatment can be coordinated with rehabilitation as close to home as possible. Now they’ll have the full complement of resources that only a university-based treatment and research center can offer – right here in Glendale.”
“Over the years, Dr. Cann has built a thriving practice through his dedication to delivering the highest quality of care to his patients,” said Jay R. Lieberman, MD, professor and chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the Keck School of Medicine of USC. “We share his passion for helping people live full, healthy lives, and we are eager to partner with him and his staff as we expand orthopaedic services in the Foothill communities.”
Keck School of Medicine of USC orthopaedic surgeons will join Dr. Cann and treat patients alongside him at the practice. Orthopaedic Surgery at USC offers world-class treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders, including sports medicine injuries, joint preservation and replacement (hip and knee replacement), hand injuries, foot and ankle disorders, bone tumors, spinal disorders and fracture care.
In addition to specialized orthopaedic surgeons, the team includes physical and occupational therapists and pain management professionals who provide a high standard of care from the operating room and into recovery.
With the acquisition of Verdugo Hills Hospital in 2013, USC has significantly expanded its presence in the Foothill communities, bringing the best of university-based medicine to the community setting.
“Keck Medicine of USC is becoming the practice of choice for physicians in Southern California because we partner with the community in a distinctly collaborative way,” says Amar A. Desai, M.D., M.P.H., and CEO of USC Care & Ambulatory Services, part of Keck Medicine of USC.
