Brian Feeley, M.D.

Orthopedic surgeon

Dr. Brian Feeley is an orthopedic surgeon in the UCSF Sports Medicine Center. He specializes in the management of athletic injuries to the shoulder, knee and hip; pediatric sports injuries; treatment of shoulder arthritis, and shoulder and collar bone fractures. He is trained in arthroscopic techniques to treat meniscal tears, ligament injuries to the knee, cartilage injuries, shoulder dislocations and instability, and labral and rotator cuff tears. He also performs shoulder joint replacement procedures.

Feeley has published over 30 peer-reviewed publications as well as book chapters and articles. His research focuses on biomechanics of the knee and muscle changes in rotator cuff tears. He earned a medical degree at Stanford University School of Medicine and completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at UCLA Medical Center. He completed a sports medicine and shoulder fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, where he served as an assistant team physician to the New York Giants. Feeley was named a 2009 Young Investigator of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and won the 2010 Young Investigator Award of the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation. He is an assistant professor in residence in orthopedic surgery at UCSF.
