About Alta Orthopaedics



Serving the Santa Barbara community for over 30 years, Alta Orthopaedics is dedicated to getting patients back to active, healthy lifestyles and a better quality of life. With locations in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Solvang, and Oxnard, California, the team strives to return their patients to the lifestyle and any activities desired through their expertise in orthopaedic surgery, pain management, and sports medicine.

The multidisciplinary team of orthopaedists, physician assistants, and physical therapists provides modern, state-of-the-art care for nearly all orthopaedic problems, including deformities, injuries (fractures, as well as sprains and strains), and developmental and degenerative processes like arthritis.

The fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons are skilled in all aspects of spine surgery, interventional spine injections, sports medicine, hand and upper extremity conditions, shoulder replacements, hip and knee replacements, orthopaedic trauma and foot and ankle surgery.

Alta Orthopaedics employs the most contemporary and proven diagnostic and treatment techniques available. Diagnostically, their clinicians use in-house radiographs and ultrasound. Treatment options include injection therapy (viscosupplementation, amniotic fluid, bone marrow aspirate concentrate), physical therapy, and, when necessary, surgery (including microsurgery, arthroscopy, and minimally-invasive computer-navigated total joint replacement).

For the highest quality care and personalized treatment approaches, call any Alta Orthopaedics office, or book your appointment online today.
