This content was provided by Dr. Purchase "My approach to patient care is rather simple, listen; engage; and educate. As a prior collegiate football player and life-long athlete, I understand the importance of getting people back to the activities they love. I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon with fellowship training in surgery of the shoulder and knee & use minimally invasive techniques to treat rotator cuffs, meniscus tears, ACL injuries, & many more. I perform total joint replacements of the shoulder and knee including the less invasive partial replacements. The care of complex traumatic injuries, fractures & tendon ruptures, is a core part of my practice as well. If you want to wait forty minutes to spend five minutes with a doctor who doesn't make eye contact or explain anything, there are many good options. If you want to be treated like an adult, become informed about your health, and participate in the process; then please make an appointment. This practice is in network with many insurance plans. If you do not see your insurance carrier included in the list of contracted plans, please call 415-353-6380 to confirm participation."
