Learn about Dr. Purchase

Care Philosophy

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.

in Napa, CA |
I met with Dr. Purchase and as soon as I met him there was a comfort level based on his sincerity and knowledge. We discussed what to expect after the repair of my injury and I believe we spoke of 60-65% is what he felt comfortable with after reviewing the MRI , X-rays etc. Dr Purchase got 95% , my PT Dr said he has NEVER seen the ability with the useI was given by DR. Purchase. I'm 58 years young and I owe Dr. Purchase the use of my shoulder , I will never forget , Thank You
