MarinHealth & UCSF Health Alliance Expands in Orthopedics

Expanding on its strategic alliance with UCSF and building on the existing strength of MarinHealth’s capabilities in orthopedic care, MarinHealth and UCSF opened a new clinic in San Rafael dedicated to orthopedics.

MarinHealth Orthopedic Surgery | A UCSF Health Clinic in the Terra Linda neighborhood of San Rafael will now treat all joints, as well as orthopedic and sports medicine needs for children over 2 years of age and adults. Services will span from prevention and diagnostics to the latest advanced treatments, treating everything from pain to joint replacement and providing rehabilitation and emergency trauma support. The offering also features sub-specialization, in which each condition is treated by a specialist in that part of the body.

Orthopedic procedures requiring hospital equipment and/or services will be done at MarinHealth Medical Center’s new Oak Pavilion, allowing patients to stay close to home. In-office visits will be offered through the MarinHealth Medical Network in the following clinic locations:

“We are excited to announce this enhanced relationship with UCSF Health Orthopedics – one of the top programs in the country – and to continue to offer the people of Marin the latest advanced treatments and techniques in operative and non-operative orthopedic treatment and care,” said Dr. Eric Bava, Medical Director of Ambulatory Orthopedic Services & Medical Director of Athletic Training at MarinHealth. “Together, we will provide a comprehensive approach to managing orthopedic issues from pain management and non-surgical treatments to a broad range of treatment options and rehabilitation. Once surgery becomes necessary the latest specialized techniques will be assessed by your physician, including the latest minimally invasive techniques.”

Orthopedic care is one of the many highly specialized services and programs offered through MarinHealth's alliance with UCSF, including maternity, neurosurgery, pediatrics, and more than 45 primary and specialty care clinics throughout the North Bay.
