I'm a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic doctor and surgeon specializing in joint replacement and sports medicine. I treat athletes and non-athletes for a wide range of orthopedic problems, from conditions caused by arthritis to severe fractures to damaged ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. I understand that joint replacement is a big decision. I let each patient tell me when they're ready, not the other way around. Although most say they wish they had done it sooner, there's an important mental process they had to go through before they could decide. I respect that process because I know how important it is to be comfortable with the decisions you make about your health. Many of my very athletic patients want to get back to 100% function after an injury as quickly as possible. My goals are to do that safely and also see long-term strength and healing that will let them perform and grow in their sports for years to come. I became a doctor after seeing a man who had been in a motorcycle accident have orthopedic surgery that successfully put him back together. I pursued sports medicine as one of my specialties because I love sports—surfing and biking—and I can't imagine not doing them. I completed a fellowship at the pioneering clinic of Kerlan-Jobe and have been able to bring those skills and much more to my patients in the South Bay....See Less
I believe a doctor should help his or her patients take charge over their own care. I'm here to facilitate each of my patients as they get back to health. I'll stay by them working at it until they're satisfied that together, we've done all we can to meet their goals. During my career I've helped thousands of people return to their sports, activities, and lives in the same or better shape than they wanted. In most cases that requires physical therapy, rest, medication, injections, or activity changes. In only some cases it requires surgery. I make sure to start most patients on conservative therapies before considering surgical solutions, something I learned in my medical training and have seen work very effectively ever since.

Why It Matters: Dr. Shrader's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

0 Malpractice Claims
No malpractice history found for California.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect non-disciplinary board actions?
Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.

Dr. Shrader Says:
Your feedback is welcome! It helps me know where my staff and I can improve or if we're doing a great job like we're supposed to. Please do understand that wait times can sometimes be long, especially late in the morning or afternoon. I take the time needed with each patient, and it doesn't always work out exactly to the scheduled appointment times. I'll do you the same courtesy when it's your turn.
