“I like working with student athletes and weekend warriors. I’m proud to be a community resource for sports medicine, exercise performance and injury prevention.”

Dr. Charles Preston provides state of the art treatment for general orthopedic as well as athletic injuries. His goal is to provide each patient with a complete evaluation of their orthopedic problem, to discuss all treatment options, and match treatment options with patient needs and expectations. He emphasizes conservative treatment before recommending surgery and uses minimally evasive techniques when surgery is required.

He has great respect for the patient’s time and is pleased to be able to offer testing, diagnosis, and surgery as needed, in one location. A goal-oriented physician, Dr. Preston works to speed healing time to return patients to work and athletes back to the field as soon as possible.

While practicing in New York, Dr. Preston was a house physician both at Shea Stadium for the New York Mets and at Madison Square Garden. Since settling in the East Bay Dr. Preston has served as a Clinical Instructor at UCSF and is the founding medical director of the Sports Performance Institute at San Ramon Regional Medical Center. He serves as the sideline physician for De La Salle Football and is an orthopedic consultant for the student athletes at St. Mary’s College.

A resident of Alamo, he supports the community by serving as an orthopedic consultant for local high schools. Dr. Preston is also certified in cartilage transplantation and also in golf fitness through the Titleist Performance Institute.

In his free time, Dr. Preston enjoys various athletic-related endeavors both as a participant and a fan. His favorite team is his family: his wife Tara and four wonderful children.

Dr. Preston is the director of the LeanMD weight loss program at MOS, and is accepting new patients. For more information, email or call our office
