Sean Robinson, M.D.

Orthopedic Surgeon & Sports Medicine Specialist

Dr. Sean Robinson was born and raised in Sacramento. He attended the University of California at Santa Barbara, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacology. Dr. Robinson then attended Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. Following medical school, he returned to California and received his orthopedic training at the San Francisco Orthopedic Residency Program. During that five year residency, Dr. Robinson developed a particular interest in Sports Medicine.

Dr. Robinson completed his fellowship in Sports Medicine at the prominent Cedars Sinai - Kerlan Jobe Institute where he received focused training in hip arthroscopy and preservation, Tommy John UCL reconstruction, complex shoulder instability, rotator cuff tears and knee ligament and meniscal injuries. He is a highly qualified and skilled arthroscopic surgeon treating the hip, shoulder, elbow, and knee. In addition to arthroscopic surgery, he is experienced with arthroplasty of the shoulder, knee, and hip – including anterior approach hip replacement - as well as fracture care of the upper and lower extremities. As part of his fellowship, Dr. Robinson provided care to numerous professional and college sports teams including the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Galaxy, Los Angeles Sparks, and Loyola Marymount University.

Dr. Robinson is dedicated to providing the highest quality Orthopedic care to his community. He grew up playing competitive soccer and baseball and appreciates the complexity of care both from the athlete’s perspective and from the medical side. Consequently, Dr. Robinson is focused on returning patients and players to their full potential within their sport or activity.

Dr. Robinson is looking forward to establishing himself in Northern California with his wife and two children. As a family, they enjoy the beach, the mountains, and everyday activities that come with having two young children. Beyond family and when time permits, Dr. Robinson enjoys all outdoor activities including snowboarding, biking and golf. He is excited about the growth and evolution of orthopedic sports medicine within the Sacramento and Elk Grove Communities and looks forward to being a part of it.
