    Keiko Amano, MD, is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in the shoulder and elbow.

    Dr. Amano began her educational career at the University of California, Berkeley, earning her bachelor’s degree in bioengineering. She then attended Georgetown University to earn her Master of Science in physiology. Dr. Amano then matriculated to the University of California, San Diego, to earn her Doctor of Medicine. Between her years in medical school, Dr. Amano returned her UC Berkeley/UCSF for an additional master’s degree in bioengineering, during which she earned the Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor award for her teaching.

    Upon completing medical school, she moved to Texas for an orthopaedic surgery residency through the University of Texas Medical Branch, where she won the “Golden Bone” resident teaching award in 2019. Dr. Amano furthered her education and training by completing an elbow and shoulder fellowship through Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

    When Dr. Amano is not caring for patients, teaching the next generation of world-class surgeons, or conducting cutting-edge research, you can find her enjoying the outdoor California weather or exploring the various local restaurants around the area.

    Dr. Amano is fluent in Japanese.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
