About Dr. Le

Dr. Sang Le was born in Vietnam. In 1979, Dr. Le left the country with his parents and siblings in search of a better life. After spending several months in a refugee camp in Indonesia, Dr. Le and his family was sponsored to come to Southern California.

Dr. Le attended the University of California, Los Angeles, and graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Cybernetics and Molecular Biology. He stayed at UCLA an additional year to pursue a Master’s in Physiological Science, which is when he decided to pursue a career in medicine.

Dr. Le chose to study medicine because he enjoys helping people. Dr. Le explains, “To be able to restore function for my patients in the practice of orthopaedics brings me an incomparable level of satisfaction and challenge.”

Dr. Le received his Medical Doctorate in 2006 from the University of Illinois, College of Medicine. He returned to Southern California in 2011 and completed his Orthopaedic Surgery residency training at Loma Linda University Medical Center. As a senior resident, he traveled to Haiti on a medical mission to care for those who were affected by an earthquake there.

Following his residency, Dr. Le then completed a fellowship in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at the University of Florida before joining his previous mentors at Arrowhead Orthopaedics in September of 2012.

Dr. Le has a strong interest in the area of hand surgery because of the complex and intricate pathoanatomy of the conditions. He looks forward to continuing learning how to best care for his patients as well as taking on the challenges of difficult orthopaedic conditions. As he says, “The more difficult the problem, the more rewarding it is when you are able to solve it.”
