    Dr. Hatch is an associate professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the director of the USC Orthopaedic Surgery Sports Medicine Fellowship. He specializes in sports medicine, with a focus on disorders and injuries affecting the shoulder, elbow, and knee. He uses advanced arthroscopic and open surgical techniques to restore damaged joints, ligaments, and bones. He is highly regarded for his expertise related to total shoulder replacement, as well as treatment of complex fractures of the shoulder and elbow. Dr. Hatch has served as an assistant physician for several professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Dodgers, Galaxy, Kings, Angels, and USC athletic teams. His research interests focus on shoulder instability, stability of the reverse total shoulder prosthesis, treatment of infected shoulder prosthesis, outcomes following multiligament knee injuries and testosterone supplementation in orthopaedic post-operative rehabilitation. Voted a Top Doctor by Pasadena Magazine in multiple years, he is a member of the prestigious American Society of Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons. Dr. Hatch received his medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. He completed a fellowship in sports medicine, knee, shoulder and elbow surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles and did a second fellowship in complex shoulder reconstruction at Harvard Medical School.
