Dr. Roth’s primary focus is minimally invasive treatments, including hip arthroscopy, complex arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery. His emphasis is on injuries that occur in active people. Many of the surgeries he performs focus on repairing or reconstructing various joint injuries, including ligament, tendon and cartilage injuries to the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle.

Dr. Roth is currently the Head Team Physician for the East Bay Area’s professional soccer team the Oakland Roots, and is also Head Team Physician for Contra Costa College.

Dr. Roth enjoys treating patients of all ages and approaches every problem from a nonoperative perspective first. Often, Dr. Roth can avoid surgery in his patients by creating an individualized physical therapy program or by performing pinpoint biologic injections, including Platelet Rich Plasma and Liposomal Stromal Cell injections to try to kickstart a healing response.
Dr. Roth works closely with primary care sports medicine physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, chiropractors, physiatrists and rehabilitation specialists to help each of his patients get fit, strong, and healthy faster.
Dr. Roth enjoys road cycling and mountain biking, skiing, hiking and backpacking, and spending time with his wife and their young twins.
