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

Care Philosophy

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.

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.

Dr. Shrader and his staff are very professional, efficient and friendly.Getting on Dr. Shrader's schedule was easy and appointments were scheduled within two weeks. He was in time and did not keep me waiting in the waiting room or medical room. He is a good listener and I never felt like he was rushing me to move on to treating the next patient. He was thorough with his explanations and patient as I asked questions. I have to say that it felt like I was getting care. Highly recommended. Thank u

Technically a good surgeon but falls far short in terms of medical ethics. Prior to surgery I asked if a friend of mine who is a physical therapist, could observe the surgery for educational purposes. Dr. Shrader said no, because the surgery room space was limited, but he later directed me to sign papers authorizing his medical secretary to sit in and observe the surgery! Clearly unethical and manipulative....
Never have had this situation with any other surgeon. Five phone calls made by my husband post op and no response from his office.
