Dr. James V. Luck, Jr., Recognized by Today’s Honoree

Children have special healthcare needs, both physical and emotional. And it takes a special person to not only heal what troubles the child but to comfort the parents and make the family whole.

Dr. James V. Luck, Jr., is just such a person. The former medical director, president and chief executive officer of Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital (now Orthopaedic Institute for Children), Dr. Luck is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hemophilia disorders, bone and soft tissue tumors, and joint reconstructions. In his current role as director of surgical services and rehabilitation at OIC’s Hemophilia Treatment Center, Dr. Luck has performed more reconstructive surgeries on hemophilia patients than almost any other surgeon in the world. Dr. Luck then follows many of these patients throughout their entire lives, helping to manage their disease in adulthood with compassion and unparalleled experience. Read more here.
