Dr. Schwartz's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Schwartz "Cancer in Dr. Schwartz's family motivated her to become a physician at an early age. She believes that honest communication and empathetic understanding are vital to a physician/patient relationship. "The most rewarding part of being an orthopedic trauma surgeon is watching patients regain their strength and restore in their function. Our ultimate goal is to improve the patient's quality of life. Orthopedic trauma is often taken for granted as "just a fracture". However, fractures that are not treated properly can lead to disabling and chronic conditions. " When Dr. Schwartz is not practicing medicine she enjoys various sports including hot yoga, jogging, walking her dalmatian, and spending time with family and friends. As one of two orthopedic traumatologists at UC San Diego, she is involved in many research projects. These include clavicle fractures, pelvic fractures, ankle fractures, compartment syndrome, and cartilage studies."
