Bradley Greenbaum, M.D. Orthopaedic Surgeon Sports Medicine, Shoulder & Knee Specialist

I am a native of Southern California. I received my undergraduate degree from UC Davis and then returned home to attend and graduate from the University of Southern California with a Medical Degree. I remained at LA County/USC to complete an Orthopaedic Surgery Internship and Residency. To further my knowledge and expertise in Sports Medicine, I traveled to Long Beach, CA and completed a yearlong Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Southern California Center for Sports Medicine. While there, we treated athletes from all levels of sport, as well as, being the designated Team Physicians for Cal State Long Beach. I was trained in the most up to date skills and techniques in Arthroscopic Knee and Shoulder surgery, as well as, Knee and Shoulder Replacements.

I have now been practicing in Orange County, CA for nearly 20 years. During that time I have gained a tremendous amount of experience in the world of Sports Medicine. I have been the designated Team Physician for the USA National Waterski Team, the USA Springboard Diving Team and World Team Tennis with Billy Jean King. I was team physician for the first Professional Soccer Team in Orange County; the OC Soccer Club. I have been on the floor helping out at the USA World Gymnastics Championships, the USA Gymnastics Olympic Trials and the Maloof Money Cup Pro Skateboarding Competitions. Finally, I have been fortunate enough during the past few years to be taking care of some of the Top Ranked Supercross Riders in the country.

For several years, I was voted one of the Top Docs Of Orange County by the OCMA and Orange Coast Magazine. I spent time as an Orthopaedic Department Chairman at the local Hospital, as well as, having served on the Board of Directors for the local Surgery Center.

It gives me no greater joy than to help those individuals and athletes who are down with the help they need to get back in action. From the Professional to the Weekend Warrior to just someone trying to get thru everyday living needs, I find it extremely rewarding to be involved in their ultimate recovery. We do our best to accommodate same day appointments whenever possible and we frown upon long wait times in our waiting room. We do not believe that our time is any more valuable than yours and we hope you’ll feel the same after seeing us. I pride myself on being up to date with my knowledge and skills in the latest and greatest in our specialty. This now includes the introduction of Stem Cell Therapy to our practice.

Please come give us a try. We hope to become one of your new favorite doctors in Orange County.
