Mohammad Diab, MD
Dr. Mohammad Diab is an orthopedic surgeon who cares for children and adolescents with all types of musculoskeletal conditions, including fractures, orthopedic infections, bone deformities, orthopedic birth defects and neuromuscular disorders. His expertise includes treating young adults with residual childhood deformities, such as previously undiagnosed hip dysplasia (an abnormality of the joint between the thighbone and hip socket). He serves as vice chair of pediatric clinical operations in the UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Diab is especially interested in conditions affecting the spine and hip, including scoliosis (a spinal curvature to one side), kyphosis (forward rounding of the spine that results in a hunched posture), spondylolisthesis (in which a vertebra has slipped onto the vertebra below) and femoroacetabular impingement (when the hip bones don't fit together as they should, causing friction).
