This content was provided by Dr. Groppo "Dr. Groppo practices the breadth of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, including the medical and surgical treatment of ear, nose and throat disorders. He was initially drawn to the field of Otolaryngology because it offered the opportunity to improve the quality of life for patients of all ages – adults and children.

A California native, Dr. Groppo grew up in Sunnyvale and attended the University of California, San Diego where he completed his undergraduate degree in Bioengineering. Prior to going into medicine, he worked as a Development Engineer and helped to develop medical devices at UC San Diego and at the NASA Ames Research Center. Dr. Groppo subsequently received his medical training at The George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. He then returned to California where he completed his residency in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. His research has been published in national and international peer-reviewed journals, and he has presented at national meetings around the country. Dr. Groppo has served in various leadership positions at Sacramento area hospitals and physician associations.
