  • foot and ankle issues
  • hands, elbow and upper extremity problems
  • joint replacement
  • microvascular surgery
  • microneurosurgery
  • spine surgery
  • soft tissue reconstruction
  • sports medicine
  • physical medicine and rehabilitation

When needed, we also collaborate with neurosurgical colleagues at UCSF. To ensure accurate diagnoses and effective treatments, we use the most advanced technologies available, such as computer-assisted navigation surgery and 3D imaging. With our location in Regional Medical Center of San Jose, our patients have 24/7 access to the resources of a level II trauma center.

In addition to patient care, our doctors are involved in research and teaching on orthopedic conditions, including injuries. We are committed to advancing the art and science of orthopedic surgery and working collaboratively – with one another and our patients – to provide the highest quality medical care.
