Dr. Frederick S. Bennett is a board certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, with subspecialty interest and fellowship training in orthopaedic trauma. He completed residency training at Los Angeles County- Harbor UCLA Medical Center in 1987, followed by an additional year of fellowship training in the treatment of complex fractures at Cooper Hospital in Camden, New Jersey in association with the University of Pennsylvania. He next spent four years in private practice at the University of Tennessee’s Level 1 Trauma Center in Knoxville before relocating to Santa Rosa in 1997.
Since coming to Santa Rosa, Dr. Bennett has been one of the major participants in Sonoma County’s regional trauma system and is part of the Orthopaedic Trauma Team at SRO. Dr. Bennett regularly manages complex musculoskeletal injuries including pelvic and hip socket fractures and complex multiple fractures of the upper and lower extremities. He also treats malunions, nonunions, deformities, arthritis and other painful conditions that result after injuries. In addition to treating fractures and other emergency problems, Dr. Bennett has cared for general orthopaedic conditions throughout his career including arthritis, sport and work injuries and nerve entrapment problems.
Dr. Bennett respects how potentially complex some orthopaedic conditions can be and often requests the help of other highly skilled orthopaedic sub specialist in the Bay Area, including other physicians of Santa Rosa Orthopaedics. He appreciates what a serious undertaking surgery is for patients, and will recommend surgery only when it is clearly the best option. The individual’s lifestyle, activity, goals, family, social and occupational commitments are always taken into consideration when making treatment recommendations.
