Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Sonu Ahluwalia, M.D., a Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon at La Peer Health Systems, has been honored as one of Southern California’s 2013 SuperDoctors®. He is featured in Los Angeles magazine's January 2013 issue. Dr. Ahluwalia was nominated for the SuperDoctor® title by fellow surgeons, doctors, and other medical professionals based on his achievements, credentials, and outstanding reputation in his field.
The SuperDoctors® title is reserved for only 5% of all physicians in Southern California, based on ten indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, all areas in which Dr. Ahluwalia excels.
“When your peers, and others you respect very highly in your field, select you as one of the area’s best, it is indeed an incredible honor” Dr. Ahluwalia said.
The SuperDoctors® selection process involves a “rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” Doctors begin the nomination process by naming those who they themselves would choose for their own medical care in specialized areas.
This year, Dr. Ahluwalia was named a SuperDoctor®. He is featured in the January 2013 edition of Los Angeles magazine and is highlighted on the SuperDoctors® website for his excellent reputation in the field of orthopedic surgery.

His medical expertise includes sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery, knee ligament reconstruction, minimally invasive surgery, acute orthopedic trauma and hip and knee replacement surgery. He earned his orthopaedic training at Harvard Medical School and, in addition to his private Beverly Hills orthopedic practice, currently serves as the Clinical Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center - one of the youngest people to ever be appointed to the position.
