“This is an exciting time to be in orthopaedics, with many new advances in the treatment of upper extremity disorders. I enjoy being on the leading edge of these advances and providing state-of-the-art treatments for my patients.”

Dr. Andrew Hartman specializes in surgery of the shoulder, elbow and hand.  In addition to completing his orthopaedic surgery residency, he has also completed an additional year of fellowship training in upper extremity surgery at the University of California at San Diego. Dr. Hartman insures he is utilizing the most innovative and effective treatments in patient care. He believes the combination of surgical expertise and mastery of state of the art techniques is essential to optimal patient outcomes and improving quality of life.

Dr. Hartman is committed to advancing the field of orthopaedics.  For the past four years, he has been an instructor at the internationally renowned San Diego Shoulder meeting.  Dr. Hartman frequently travels nationally to collaborate and train other orthopaedic surgeons in operative techniques, particularly shoulder replacement surgery.  Dr. Hartman works closely with his rehabilitative team to customize treatment programs and utilize the most current methods in order to restore pre-injury function and allow a quick return to activities.
