Dr. Todd A. Shrader, MD

Orthopedic Surgery | Male | 53 years old

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.Read more

Learn about this Doctor

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.Read more

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.

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.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Shrader says..

Because I specialize in sports medicine as well as joint replacement, I treat the whole body. Many of my patients see me for acute sports injuries such as rotator cuff tears, ACL tears, torn knee menisci, Achilles tendon ruptures, and broken bones. I also stay current with the most up-to-date treatments for people suffering from arthritis pain. Along with other options, there are some very promising joint lubricant products that have helped many of my patients get reduced pain or painless function back in joints that would have otherwise needed to be replaced or surgically repaired much sooner.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Shrader says..

I surgically repair all types of acute injuries after sporting accidents or other types of trauma. This includes tendon and ligament tears, fractures, and cartilage damage. I perform joint replacement surgery of the shoulders, hips, and knees. I use the anterior approach to hip replacement, which preserves hip muscles and tendons. I also perform the subvastus approach partial and total knee replacement procedures. Using these and other skilled, minimally-invasive surgical techniques help my patients recover more quickly and have less bleeding, bruising, and scarring. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection therapy has also yielded success with many of my patients. It speeds healing by injecting the patient at the injury/post-surgery site with a concentrated dose of healing factors extracted from their own blood.
