It is my goal to provide each patient with excellent orthopedic care that caters to their individual needs and is in accordance with evidence-based treatment strategies. My priority is to treat every patient as if they were a member of my own family. I will do everything I can to make sure that together we obtain the best possible results.


Assistant Professor Paul Hoogervorst, MD, has a wide variety of orthopedic expertise, having completed three orthopedic fellowships in different subspecialty areas. Dr. Hoogervorst is an alumnus of the department's adult reconstructive fellowship, a sports medicine fellowship at SOAR, CA, and a research and trauma fellowship at UCSF. This broad range of experiences allows Dr. Hoogervorst to provide exceptional, well-rounded, expert care to patients and families. He's particularly interested in adult reconstructive surgery, including joint preservation and primary and complex revision arthroplasty, orthopedic trauma and peri-prosthetic fracture care, and sports-related injuries.
