Care Philosophy

We strive to provide high quality, personalized, and compassionate orthopedic services for general orthopedics, arthritis, sports medicine, spine problems, and pediatric injuries. We provide expert evaluation and treatment for musculoskeletal injuries and pain of the neck and low back, the legs, the foot and ankle, the knees, the hips, the arms, the hand and wrist, the elbows, and the shoulders. We are able to provide specialized injections, and we offer expert surgical care, such as arthroscopy, in local hospitals or surgery centers. Our main office is in the tall Mills Square Building in downtown San Mateo, where parking is available in the dedicated garage. We are close to MRI, laboratory, and hospital facilities, and we have an in-office X-ray machine for your convenience. Our office staff is also happy to assist Spanish-speaking patients.
