Overview

Cary M. Tanner was born in Los Angeles and went to high school at Long Beach Poly. Like his father Ray and his cousin Sam, he raced motorcycles professionally. He now races stock cars (but prefers motorcycles). He understands fractures very, very well. He completed medical school and orthopedic residency at Stanford University. Beyond this, he has completed three fellowships: an NIH postdoctoral research fellowship and spine surgery fellowship at Stanford, as well as a hand and microvascular surgery fellowship at Duke University. He has held only two jobs. He worked in machine shops from his early teens through medical school at Stanford University's engineering machine shop, and as that of an M.D. He has eight research publications in national journals, and two research awards. He coordinates a regional orthopedic surgery outcome center. Along with research studies underway at the center, he has research projects with the graduate school of Physical Therapy at Fresno State University. He is married to Regina, an attorney and registered nurse with a master's degree in oncology. He enjoys his machine shop, participating in motorsports, and family activities. Dr. Tanner's practice addresses conditions that occur from the elbow to the fingertip.
