About Me

Growing up in rural southern Ohio, Dr. Foster’s interest in medicine was piqued through his own various sports injuries. After graduating from Miami University, he attended The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He was drawn to the immediate quality of life improvements orthopedic surgery could offer patients and stayed at to complete his orthopedic surgery residency. Dr. Foster is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with fellowship training in joint replacement. It became his primary goal to help patients regain their mobility after degenerative joint conditions or fractures.

Dr. Foster arrived in Southern California to complete the prestigious hip and pelvis reconstruction fellowship at Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica. Under the tutelage of Dr. Joel Matta, the world leader and primary innovator of anterior approach total hip replacement, he learned the least invasive technique in hip replacement, which allows rapid recovery and virtually eliminates the risk of dislocation. He enjoyed the southern California patients, lifestyle and decided to continue his career in the region.

Being trained in various methods of knee replacement and in keeping up with modern technology, he has embraced the robotic total knee replacement method, which he feels is the most consistent and reproducible technique for creating a well-balanced, pain-free knee after surgery. He offers both standard and robotic knee replacement options to his patients.

His clinical interests include total hip replacement, total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, shoulder replacement, as well as non-operative treatments of arthritic conditions of the hip, knee, and shoulder. Dr. Foster takes interest in spending extra time with his patients, educating them on their condition, potential treatment options, and explaining expectations of surgery. The decision to undergo joint replacement is often a life-changing one; Dr. Foster feels it should not be a rushed decision. His joy is watching patients recover after surgery and return to an improved quality of life.

In his spare time, Dr. Foster enjoys weight training, surfing, distance running, hiking, NHL hockey, and Ohio State football.
