VA Palo Alto Health Care System


Orthopedic Surgery Service

Welcome to the Orthopedic Surgery Service at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. Our Service is made up of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, and administrative staff. It is a privilege for us to provide the nation’s Veterans with the most current and up to date practices in orthopedic surgery.

We personally see patients in Palo Alto, Livermore, San Jose, and Monterey. We also provide orthopedic consultations for Veterans in their own homes with VA telemedicine technology. Telemedicine visits can be done for Veterans in any location as long as they have a computer and an adequate internet connection.

What We Do

Orthopedic surgery at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System deals with musculoskeletal problems of the arms and legs that may need surgery. These include fractures of bones, joint problems such as arthritis, injuries to tendons and ligaments, and orthopedic tumors in any location. Presently, spine problems are addressed by either Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (non-surgical) or Neurosurgery (surgical). Hand problems are addressed by the Hand service that is run by Plastic Surgery.
