Our patients tell their stories:
I am a new patient at the Knee Center and just received my second injection on my left knee and cannot believe the improvement. I feel that I had a substantial amount of relief and the pain has gone away. I also had a cortisone injection and am also experiencing no pain on that knee. I have pep to my step again and I am no longer feeling the lingering constant pain I felt before. Cannot imagine what a relief I’ll feel by the time I receive my final injection. Thank you so much Dr. Rahimi you’re the best! – Magdalia R. Costa Mesa, CA
I have 90% improvement in my knee. I am able to walk better with a lot less pain and everyday it feels even better. Physical Therapy helped a lot. It was necessary for my treatment to be effective. I found Dr. Rahimi and the staff at Knee Centers to be very helpful and would recommend it to others. – Angelina T., Carson CA
Thank you for all the work Mason did to help me with my stressed neck problem. He has done wonders with all the therapy used as exercise for the neck pain and posture stretching. I came in with a year of pain and am leaving with little pain and more ease of motion. The experience has been wonderful. I’m sad to have to stop at this time. – Marlene B. , Newport Beach, CA
Before I came here it was very painful just to get out of the bed. The pain lessened after 2-3 minutes. As a hiker, I suffered greatly especially when I had to hike down a steep terrain. My ambition to do better propelled me to visit Knee Centers for Supartz injections as well as PT. With the combination of the two, I now forget how bad it was before. I still experience some pain and discomfort when my hike becomes long and hard (10 miles and 3000′ gain/loss) but I hope with the continuation of PT (myself) the pain will be negligible. – Kanita H. Fullerton, CA
Years of aggressive sport activities had virtually erased the meniscus in both of my knees. By age fifty, the orthopedic surgeons had recommended total replacement of both knees. However, they also explained that having knee replacement surgery at such an early age would probably facilitate having the procedure done again at a later age. Not wanting to have multiple replacement surgeries, I learned to live with the pain and to function as best as possible on a daily basis. My knees hurt every day, and most nights I would be awakened by the pain in my knees. I could not walk the length of the mall with my wife or walk along the beach with my grandchildren.
A friend recommended Dr. Rahimi and the Knee Centers. Since being treated at the Knee Centers I have been virtually pain free and my quality of life has improved immensely. I am now able to be more active with my grandchildren and I have even gone shopping at the mall with my wife. I look forward to being able to have the more active life that I previously enjoyed. Their customized treatment and rehabilitation program has greatly enhanced my quality of life. I strongly recommend the Knee Centers to anyone suffering from knee problems.

Dr. Rahimi and her staff have taken me from being in constant knee pain and swelling to being able to do normal activities and walking more. Between the injections and physical therapy, I am enjoying walking without a limp or pain.
The whole process was simple, easy and truly almost painless. I no longer take pain medication and I am relieved of the fear of another knee operation and knee replacement. I am fortunate to be so successful with this treatment. Thank you, Dr. Rahimi and your very professional staff, too. - Carol J., Fountain Valley, CA
I have had an arthritic knee for almost 20 years after a knee injury and torn meniscus surgery. I went to a seminar that explained everything about Supartz, did my own research on the web, and decided it was worth trying rather than having knee replacement surgery.
I could not have been more pleased with the results. I was fortunate to have a significant decrease in pain after the very first injections and after three I was virtually pain free. I whole-heartedly endorse Supartz injections – and Dr. Rahimi’s skill and nearly painless technique made these procedures quick, efficient, and effective. – David R., Laguna Beach, CA
I am an avid golfer who was suffering from an arthritic left knee. My knee was so weak that it affected my golfing. My golf scores kept getting higher and my enjoyment of the game was going down. Thoughts of quitting golf entered my mind. I attended their seminar and decided to sign up for the treatment.
The treatment has been great. I have no pain in my knee and, more importantly, my golf scores are going down and my enjoyment of golf is going up. The physical therapy and the injections have improved my knee to almost 100%. I bought several different types of knee braces but the knee brace they furnished is outstanding and I use it every time I golf. I recommend anyone suffering from arthritic knees to sign up for the Knee Centers treatment. – Mitsao O., Tustin, CA
Dr. Rahimi, thank you for your professionalism and your kindness and excellent bedside manner. You have a great staff, they all feel like family to me. They, and you, are kind, sensitive, humorous, and extremely caring. Thank you for making the “shot process” more than bearable. I’ll miss my visits. Thank you for being a part of my life, if only but a short time. I’ll miss all of you. – Tom F., Wilmington, CA
I wanted to write you to tell you just how happy I am to have found you! I remember the first time I came to your clinic, I was using a walker to help myself get around, and even with that I had trouble walking. I was waiting to have my knee replacement surgery approved and suffering agonizing pain most of the time. I could not do ordinary daily activities and, what was worse, I could not enjoy spending time with my grandchildren anymore. So, although I came in with doubts and reservations, I was still hopeful that something good would come out of my visit.
My doubts and reservations were soon put to rest by your kind and patient staff and, of course, your professionalism and obvious expertise. Within 1 week, I had stopped using the walker and only needed my cane to help myself around and, to my surprise, by my 3rd visit, I didn’t need either one. With the injections and therapeutic exercises done in the clinic as well as the ones done at home, I not only felt 100 times better within the first 2 weeks but I also lost over 20 lbs. by my 4th week! I could not have asked for anything more!
Your kindness, patience, genuine interest in your patients’ well-being and knowledge of your specialty have changed my life. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found your clinic and that YOU have given me my life back. Now I can do things for myself – I can go to the grocery store, I can visit my friends and, the best thing of all, you have given my grandkids their grandpa back! I feel great and it’s all because of you and you wonderful staff! – Pablo N., Hawthorne, CA
I have received excellent treatment at Knee Centers, Newport Beach and my life has changed from limited mobility to a free movement. For more than 10 years, I was suffering deep pain and inflammation and very little mobility. I was not walking well and had difficulty standing for a few minutes. At night I had trouble sleeping because of the pain in my knees. I had received medications but they were for temporary relief. Instead of recovering, my health was decreasing and the inflammation in the knees was increasing, more pain, less mobility. Reading the newspaper I found an advertisement for the Knee Centers. I have recovered step by step, the inflammation and pain have decreased and my mobility increased. Sincerely, I recommend the treatment at Knee Centers to receive excellent professional care, appointments on time and therapy at the same location. – Marta C., Anaheim.
I am absolutely fine!! Thanks to you I go up and down 19 steps twice every day, go to the gym every day, do 30 minutes on the treadmill and 30 minutes on the bike plus some strength machines. – Janet C.
I’ve had knee pain for the last 35 years…I felt good but my knee joints seemed to not get better. I knew there was a remedy somewhere. My doctor just let me take pills, all kinds of pills. …I saw Dr. Rahimi’s and she introduced me to her style of treatment and believe me it changed my life. I don’t take pills anymore. My flexibility became better and I was addicted coming to the clinic two times a week. I hope people with knee problems come to see her. I felt very relieved and I’m happy knowing that I am on my way to more flexibility in my knees and to be back to dancing again. Dr. Rahimi, you’re good! – Evelyn H., Torrance, CA
My first visit to the Knee Center, I had to use a wheelchair. I could not put any weight on my leg. After a couple of treatments, I went from a wheelchair to a walker. Another couple of weeks and I was only using a cane. I am now putting full weight on my leg. The treatment and therapy I had for my knee did the trick. The staff is very knowledgeable, professional and extremely nice. – Diana V., Huntingon Beach, CA
My right knee was giving me grief for years and then people started noticing my limping and saying I needed to get something done. A knee replacement? Yikes! No Thank you. Then I saw an advertisement for a seminar on Hyaluronic injections at the Knee Centers in Newport Beach. I went ahead with the injections and physical therapy immediately on my right knee and felt better with each injection. Even the PT helped which I still do. Then I had my left knee done and that was a vast improvement. – Nancy H., Huntington Beach, CA
I saw your ad in the Coto de Coza news and thought that you might be able to give me relief. I called and got an appointment to meet with Dr. Rahimi the same week for an evaluation. She very quickly assessed my knee and had me get an x-ray and an MRI to confirm her diagnosis. I then went to a series of Physical Therapy and knee injections. Both treatments give me pain relief and I can now walk down stairs without holding onto a handrail for stability. They also worked with my insurance company very diligently to make sure all treatments were covered prior to beginning therapy. Thank you! – Arthur C.
The braces are a wonder! They’re great and marvelous, I think everyone should have the benefit of getting a brace. This is the first time that I have not taken any pain pills in months. The brace is a gift from heaven and absolutely helpful. I can now walk straight with no pain! I’m am happy with my knee brace. – Stella C., Los Angeles
The Knee Center helped me so much, were very informative, actually diagnosed me correctly and knew what treatment to recommend. The Physical Therapist was very helpful and patient with a lot of exercises to continue to help. – Catherine H., Celebration, FL
