About Dr. Haggerty

Erin Haggerty, MD, is a dual fellowship-trained foot and ankle specialist and sports and regenerative medicine specialist at Alta Orthopaedics in Santa Barbara, Oxnard, and Solvang, California. As a physician board-certified in both specialties, she has a particular interest and training in pathology pertaining to the foot, ankle, and hip regions. 

In the foot and ankle, Dr. Haggerty treats sports-related injuries in athletes, degenerative issues such as arthritis, deformity correction, bunion surgery, Achilles tendon ruptures, and foot and ankle trauma. She also has advanced training in total ankle replacement surgery. In the hip region, she specializes in arthroscopic, minimally-invasive treatment for labral tears and impingement syndromes.  

Dr. Haggerty was born and raised in Ventura, California, and feels privileged to return to the region to treat the community here in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. After graduating from Buena High School, she attended the University of California, Los Angeles, where she was an NCAA student-athlete and competed as a varsity member of the women’s crew team for four years. She then earned her medical degree from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California and completed her internship and residency in orthopaedic surgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. 

Following orthopaedic residency, Dr. Haggerty completed two fellowships. She performed her first fellowship in sports medicine at Brown University. There, she learned the skills necessary to treat soft tissue ailments via minimally-invasive arthroscopic approaches so as to return athletes to play as soon as possible. In this fellowship, she also served as a team doctor for all of the Brown University athletes as well as for the Providence Bruins AHL professional hockey team. With this aspect of her training, she gained valuable skills in caring for athletes that she was able to translate to her foot and ankle patients as well.

Dr. Haggerty then completed a second fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at the University of California, Davis and the Reno Orthopedic Clinic. During this busy year, she mastered the skills necessary to treat all pathology involving the foot and ankle. She works proactively with all of her patients to determine and achieve their best possible outcome.  

Dr. Haggerty and her husband, Ben, are thrilled to return to their hometown and begin a family. She feels grateful to be joining the team of providers at Alta Orthopaedics and looks forward to helping the citizens of the community in which she was raised.
