Dr. Stephen Nuccion was raised in Napa, California and attended UCLA for
his undergraduate degree. He earned his medical degree from USC and then
returned to UCLA for his orthopedic surgery residency. Dr. Nuccion completed
a sports medicine fellowship at Harvard University where he refined his
orthopedic experience in the care of both recreational and competitive
athletes. Today, his practice focuses on all aspects of shoulder and knee
injuries as well as degenerative conditions.
What Dr. Nuccion enjoys most about orthopedics is the opportunity to intervene
both surgically and non-surgically and to have a positive effect on the
function and quality of many people’s lives. He is always seeking
new ways to help patients including minimally invasive surgery and biologic
growth factors. Dr. Nuccion chose to join the Torrance Memorial Physician
Network because it offers a tremendous opportunity for state-of-the-art,
integrated healthcare that can evolve with the changing environment. He

Outside of the office, Dr. Nuccion is involved in helping young athletes
develop and stay safe. He is the team physician for Peninsula High School,
the medical director for Beach Cities Flag Football as well as coach for
his son's football and daughter's basketball teams. His favorite
personal exercise is running and he has completed eight Run Disney Half-Marathons
over the last five years. Dr. Nuccion and his family live in the South
