K.C.

Four friends from my area had either gotten their own surgery or kids’ surgeries and finally convinced me to see him. Well worth it. Had arthroscopy of my knee and it was very quick and is healing well. Will be doing hip surgery within the next two months and I am sure he will do… Read More »

At 29, I went to see Dr. Guanche after I had torn my labrum and could barely walk. I researched several doctors from San Diego to LA. I met with the other orthopedic surgeons and I had all of them review my films/images and they said they couldn’t help me. The reasons I chose Dr.… Read More »

Dr. Guanche is a skilled surgeon! He repaired my torn hamstring tendon. This is a rare procedure only a handful of doctors know how to perform. I traveled half way across the country have this done. I had not met Dr. Guanche prior to the day of my surgery. But I was impressed because I… Read More »

I’ve had 2 surgeries performed Dr. Guanche on my right leg. The first one was 3 years ago to repair my torn hip labral. The second one was almost 1 year ago for a torn knee ACL. I LOVE Dr. Guanche! It is because of him that I can walk. He never rushed me into… Read More »

DR. GUANCHE IS AMAZING!!! I was severely injured at work and had many injuries including a nasty shoulder injury. My first Dr. (Whom I won’t name) didn’t notice that my shoulder was dislocated for 7 months!!! It was outrageous. He was only taking X-rays from 1 direction. So after he FINALLY got the MRI report… Read More »

Had my left hip surgery a year ago, and I feel great! Dr. Guanche is a knowledgeable, professional and highly skilled surgeon. He has wonderful bedside manner and was very attentive throughout the whole process, from pre-op all the way to post-op and recovery. I would recommend Dr. Guanche to anyone that has hip issues,… Read More »

Dr. Guanche is the BEST doctor I have ever had. I had left shoulder surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff. I live almost 4 hours from his medical practice but would drive as far as I needed because of his abilities. He is kind and informative. His bedside manner is phenomenal. Dr. Guanche was… Read More »


J.B.

I consulted Dr. Guanche to undertake the unenviable task of surgically correcting a complex and painful orthopedic condition in my right proximal hamstring area. The chronic pain was sometimes intense and often disruptive to activities of daily living. Tasks as simple as bending over to comfort my toddler or sitting through 30-minute meetings were intensely… Read More »


P.V.

Dr. Guanche is amazing! When you go to a surgeon, you want someone who knows what he is doing. I loved his bedside manner, but truthfully I did not care as I was really concerned with his ability to cut and cure! I had labral tears on both hips, when Dr. Guanche was in surgery,… Read More »
