Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Keith Feder, a Manhattan Beach resident who is the Director of the West Coast Center for Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine and the Founder of the West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation, recently received the “State Award for Outstanding Services.” The award was presented by the National Federation of State High School Associations in recognition of service and contributions in support of “The CIF and Sports Medicine Initiatives.”
CIF State Executive Director Roger Blake presented the award to Dr. Feder, honoring the surgeon’s commitment to more than 43 high schools over two decades.
“Dr. Feder volunteered thousands of hours on Saturdays and Sundays to help students who can’t afford medical care,” Blake said, noting that more than 14 million high school athletes were impacted by the work Dr. Feder and his Foundation have contributed at no cost.
