Overview

He says he always had an interest in science and a desire to work with people, which is why he pursued medicine. "I enjoy patients of all ages—from the curious toddler playing with my reflex hammer to the elderly patient giving me sage advice. Orthopedics is a rapidly developing discipline with room for research and technical advances," comments Dr. Friscia. Dr. Friscia graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University. Returning to California, he earned his Medical Degree from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). Following medical school in 1984, he spent five years as a resident at UCLA.
