His special interests are in total joint replacement, extremity trauma, fractures, shoulder/knee/ankle arthroscopy, arthritic pain, and all conditions of the foot and ankle. Dr. Garcia is an Ivy league graduate who has obtained his medical and surgical training at the best universities and programs in the world. He earned his bachelor of science from Columbia University, New York City, majoring in chemical engineering. After graduating from Columbia, Dr. Garcia continued to live in Manhattan to manage a molecular biology lab in Mount Sinai Hospital, NYC. He worked as a researcher and lab manager for several years before deciding to move to the west coast, where he completed medical school at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles (USC) – Keck School of Medicine. He then completed his orthopaedic surgery training at the UCSF-Fresno Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program. During his residency training Dr. Garcia noted that most of his patients, especially those from small communities, had difficulty finding expert foot and ankle care. To help meet this need and better serve his community, Dr. Garcia decided to obtain additional training in foot and ankle surgery, and completed a subspecialty fellowship program in foot and ankle surgery at Desert Orthopaedic Center in Las Vegas.
An outdoorsman at heart, Dr. Garcia moved to Juneau to take advantage of all the amazing hiking, boating and adventures offered. His other interests include strength training, botany, yoga and meditation.
