"My goal is to restore maximum function with the highest level of quality care so you can get back to living life."

Dr. Contreras began practicing orthopedic medicine in 1991 after receiving his medical degree and completing his internship and residency at University of California, San Francisco. His ensuing fellowship in orthopedic trauma prepared him for a challenging position as Assistant Clinical Professor for the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at UCSF’s School of Medicine, and lead to his appointment as the acting Chief of the Orthopaedic Department at San Francisco General Hospital.

Dr. Contreras is Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and has more than 25 years of experience in treating patients.

Dr. Contreras applies his years of experience and knowledge daily to overcome orthopedic challenges. His thoroughness and contemplative nature ensure all avenues are explored when planning treatment, and his traditional values and personable demeanor offer patients comfort in addition to superior medicine.

An educator by nature, he has lectured and authored several articles on his specialty.
