Richard Gellman

Dr. Richard Gellman joined the practice in 2001 and specializes in pelvic and lower leg orthopedic trauma. He has done extensive work in post traumatic reconstructive surgery.

Upon completing his orthopedic residency at the University California San Francisco in 1997, Dr Gellman completed two fellowships. The first was foot and ankle reconstruction in Charlotte, NC, and followed by Trauma care at the University of Texas Houston.

Dr Gellman has traveled the world performing surgeries and changing the lives of people who can benefit from his expertise in bone healing. His most recent trip saw him return to Africa for two weeks of surgeries and safari.

His work with SIGN fracture care international is one of his most closely held passions with many lives improved around the world.
