    Dr. Alan Zhang is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder. In the hip, he treats labral tears, FAI (femoroacetabular impingement), and other athletic injuries. He is a specialist in advanced hip arthroscopy for labral repair and reconstruction as well as hip preservation. In the knee, he specializes in ACL tears, meniscus tears and cartilage injuries- including ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair surgery. In the shoulder, he specializes in rotator cuff tears, labral tears, dislocation/instability and biceps tears.

    Dr. Zhang is the Director of the UCSF Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery Fellowship and the Director of the Hip Preservation Center (https://hipcenter.ucsf.edu). He is a team physician for the University of San Francisco NCAA Division I teams and Archbishop Riordan High School.

    Dr. Zhang was elected to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine Council of Delegates and is a principal reviewer for the American Journal of Sports Medicine. He is an invited international speaker and has published over 100 research articles, winning numerous awards on his studies. He is also an instructor for advanced hip arthroscopy courses and is a member of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy.

    Dr. Zhang graduated Summa Cum Laude from Rice University, studying biochemistry and cell biology. He obtained his M.D. from UCSD School of Medicine and was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. Dr. Zhang completed residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery at UCLA Medical Center followed by a fellowship in Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery at UCSF.
