Gregg T. Pottorff, MD
Dr. Gregg Pottorff is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in physics and economics. He then attended Stanford University for medical school and an orthopedic residency. From there, Dr. Pottorff completed his fellowship in sports medicine at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.
While he considers himself a general orthopedist and often treats fractures, sprains and strains, Dr. Pottorff has both subspecialty interest and extensive experience in arthroscopic surgery and joint replacement using minimally invasive surgery techniques.
Dr. Pottorff’s interests are shoulder arthroscopy (rotator cuff repairs, labral tears, etc.), knee arthroscopy (ACL reconstruction, meniscal tears, etc.), hip arthroscopy (labral tears, femoral impingement, etc.), hip, knee and shoulder replacement (both full and partial) and cartilage restoration procedures for damaged joints.
He is usually able to prevent the need for surgery and uses the latest injection therapies (including platelet rich plasma and hyaluronic acid) to help heal chronic degenerative joint and tendon conditions.
