Dr. Fokin Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fokin Jr "I am an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, as well as arthroscopic and open treatment of various conditions of the shoulder and knee. I was drawn to a career in orthopedics because I love the ability to almost immediately help solve a patient's problem and make a difference in their ability to function at a high level. Through education, preventive care and/or surgery, I can get them back to their normal routine or playing a sport they love. I specialize in common sports injuries about the shoulder and the knee like rotator cuff and labral tears, as well as ACL and meniscal injuries. I also have a special interest in reconstruction of complex multi-ligamentous knee injuries and treatment of patella-femoral instability. Besides arthroscopy, one of my other specialties is shoulder arthroplasty. Most of my patients who are considering a shoulder replacement are first evaluated with a pre-operative CT scan, which is then turned into a three-dimensional model of the patient's shoulder. Having this unique ability to pre-operatively review a patient's complex anatomy helps me to handle any nuances that could otherwise be a surprise in surgery. Throughout my career, I have worked closely with high school, college and professional sports teams to provide guidance and care to athletes. While at the University of Miami, I worked closely with the Miami Hurricanes football team as well as the Miami Marlins. While in San Diego, California, I spent much of my time working at the Coronado Naval Base with the Seal teams helping our troops recover from their injuries and return to deployment. I was also an assistant team physician for Southwestern College Men's Football."
