He went on to the Southern California Orthopedic Institute for an orthopedic fellowship in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy. This advanced training included arthroscopic and minimally-invasive surgery of the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle. After completing his fellowship training, Dr. Millstein began his private practice in Century City, California.
