Dr. Kam is Las Vegas' premier BOARD CERTIFIED, FELLOWSHIP TRAINED shoulder and elbow reconstruction surgeon.  He remains on the cutting edge of new techniques and has a reputation of dealing with some of the most difficult upper extremity problems in the region.  He constantly strives to remain a top surgeon in his field locally and nationally. His expertise allows him to speak and teach about shoulder and elbow surgery across the country.
