All right, good afternoon, I’m Dr. Kyle McClintock. I’m an orthopedic surgeon at The Orthopedic Specialty Center of Northern California or TOSC, as we like to call it.
I just wanted to put together a brief little presentation to introduce myself to everybody in the community, especially the primary care physicians.
Those of you who are doing such a great job, taking care of these patients and getting my information out to you so that you have a source to turn to when you need a little help with these orthopedic consultations. So I wanted to give you a little bit of background about myself, my education, and training, the conditions that I treat and how we can better help serve your practice.
As you try to take care of patients to the best of your abilities. It’s been kind of difficult during COVID to really develop those close knit relationships with the primary cares in the area. So I thought I’d get a little bit creative to see if I could reach you during COVID with a little bit more of a modern approach.
So I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon. I did a fellowship in shoulder and elbow reconstruction after I finished residency and I relocated to Roseville in the second half of 2021. I was really looking for a place where I could practice medicine in a better way and provide the type of personalized medical care that I wanted to give my patients. And I just wasn’t able to do that in my prior practice down in Modesto, California.
My goal is to partner with patients to help restore their lifestyle and help them achieve the quality of life that they’re looking for from day to day, whether that relates to their work requirements, their hobbies, their interests, whatever that may be.
And really, I see that as a collaboration between myself, the specialist, and you, the primary care physician, because we need to work together to help these patients through these difficulties.
So a little bit about me. I grew up in California, was raised down in Bakersfield at the Southern end of the valley. My wife and I got married during undergrad and we have three children. I actually started medical school with a one year old. And by the time I graduated medical school, our youngest was born a few months before graduation. So we started residency with a full house and it’s been quite an adventure for us. We live in Granite Bay. We’re still looking for a house in this crazy market. So if you happen to have a lead on a home, please send me an email or call me.
And I’m a big outdoor fan. I love to play golf, camp, hike, fish, explore the outdoors. And so on the weekends when I’m not working, that’s where you’ll find me.
So a little bit about my education and my training. I did my undergraduate work at Brigham Young university in Provo, Utah. From there, I went to medical school in Kansas city at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences where I earned my degree in osteopathic medicine and a little bit of a unique degree program opportunity or offering that they had there was, while I was earning my medical degree I enrolled in a combined MBA program. So I have an MBA program from the Helzberg School of Management at Rockhurst University, which is a Jesuit, part of the Jesuit university conglomeration. And that emphasis is in healthcare management. So I think it’s been really helpful for me to have that understanding and background as we navigate some of the challenges in medicine moving forward, especially as it relates to cost of care, providing high quality care, and trying to be really conscientious and kind of be an active player in improving the overall outcomes that we offer patients, as we treat them.
Following medical school, we moved to St. Louis where I did residency and then during residency, that’s where I really kind of gained my affinity for shoulder and elbow surgery.
When I first went into medical school, I was thinking that I would do sports medicine because of an injury that I had as a teenager on my knee. But during residency, as I was exposed to some of the complex reconstruction of the shoulder, I just became fascinated with shoulder surgery. And so the shoulder and elbow fellowship became the next objective.
So I went to Phoenix, Arizona and worked with the Core Institute for a year, just learning more about complex shoulder and elbow reconstruction.
And so that’s what I do now. It’s kind of a broad category, even though it seems very narrow as a shoulder and elbow specialist.
The most common conditions that I treat are arthritis of both the shoulder and the elbow.
So I do a lot of shoulder replacements, reverse shoulder replacements, non-operative treatment of both shoulder and elbow arthritis. We do have elbow replacement options for patients.
The sports related injuries that I treat are the common ones. So rotator cuff tears, labral tears, biceps injuries, AC joint separations. And I also treat a lot of fractures.
So I take call at Mercy Folsom hospital as well as Sutter Roseville Medical Center. And so just the normal call type injuries that occur, hip fractures, ankle fractures, and those, but I really enjoy those upper extremity fractures.
So clavicle fractures, proximal humerus fractures, distal humerus, forearm, distal radius, all those.
Around the elbow, the common things that I see in in the office are tennis elbow, golfers elbow, distal biceps ruptures, cubital tunnel syndrome.
And I do get into a little bit of hand treatment as well. The most common things are carpal tunnel and trigger finger. As those are the most common conditions. We do have a really good team of hand surgeons here in the Roseville area. So I leave the more complex stuff up to those guys. Because they’re the expert.
From a privilege standpoint, I have privileges at all the major facilities in the area. So Sutter Roseville Medical Center, I do a lot of surgery at Sutter Sierra Surgical Center, Mercy Folsom Hospital. And I’m also privileged at Mercy San Juan Medical Center. I get a lot this from patients as well as primary cares as I’ve gone around to meet everyone.
As you know, I was in practice in Modesto. Why did you pick Roseville? And the answer to that question is a little bit of a deeper conversation but to give you the short version, Dr. Jamieson, who’s my partner. He started TOSC about four years ago and he’s a good friend of mine from medical school. He was a fourth year when I was a first year and we lived pretty close to one another. And so we became close friends. And over the past few years he’s been kind of bugging me, texting me, calling me, asking me to come take a look at the area. And he convinced me that this was a fantastic community to not only live in but to practice medicine in. And ultimately I wanted to practice a better brand of medicine, to be more hands on with patients, spend more time with each person and deal with a patient population who took a real active and interested role in their own care because I want to help people get back to active, busy lifestyles.
And so when I looked at Roseville and I looked at the demographics here, the population base, and kind of the outdoor recreational activities that are available, it just seemed like a great place for me as an upper extremity surgeon to focus my time and efforts.
So really my objective is to build relationships with you as the primary care physician, not just a working relationship but I’d also love to build those personal relationships so that we can work together to improve care. I wanna make it easier for your office to send referrals.
I would like to get patients into the office in a timely fashion for orthopedic consultations and to communicate effectively back with you regarding the treatment that was rendered so that you are in the loop and know what’s going on with your folks.
As a side note, we do take all the major commercial insurance payers. I take Hill Physicians, I’m on Sutter Independent Physician Network as well. So pretty much anything that you have and wanna send my way we can easily handle. And this is my information.
Our office is in the Fountains, over at the Galleria on Galleria Boulevard. And this is our office contact. So feel free to reach out to me, text me, call me, email me. I’d love to hear from you. And hopefully in the near future, we can get together on an in-person basis and continue to get to know one another. And I look forward to working with you and the Roseville community moving forward.
