As a proud member of the Pacific Orthopedics and Sports Medicine team, Dr. Nadeau understands that the pain and loss of function arising from acute musculoskeletal injury and/or degenerative joint disease can have a profound influence on quality of life. He takes great pride in providing high quality care and seeing his patients through their journey to recovery of form and function. Active academic involvement in research and education means that treatment recommendations will be supported by up-to-date clinical evidence and current developments in surgical technique and implant design.
