Brandon Beamer M.D.| Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon
Dr. Beamer is a board certified, fellowship trained specialist in orthopaedic sports medicine, performing arthroscopic (minimally invasive) surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle in adult and pediatric populations. He is proud to be a part of Marshall Medical Center Orthopedics.
Dr. Beamer is a native of Rocklin, California. After graduating valedictorian from Rocklin High School, he graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with honors. He attended medical school at Cornell University Medical School in New York, NY, where he graduated with honors. Thereafter, he was accepted to the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program in Boston, MA, operating at the nation’s top hospitals, including Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. After residency, Dr. Beamer began his journey back to his home of California and was accepted as a clinical fellow at Stanford, where he specialized in orthopaedic sports medicine and served as assistant team physician for the San Francisco 49ers and Stanford Athletics.
Dr. Beamer is one of a few fellowship trained hip arthroscopists in Northern California. In addition to performing hip arthroscopy for the treatment of acetabular labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement, and microinstability of the hip, he also performs hip replacement surgery through a less-invasive, muscle-sparing, direct anterior approach.
Dr. Beamer also performs complex arthroscopic repairs of the shoulder and knee. Dr. Beamer is trained in advanced techniques for rotator cuff repair, shoulder instability, and shoulder replacement surgery. He also performs anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, using modern “anatomic” techniques, which improves functional outcomes and return to play for the patient. He has clinical interest in complex multi-ligamentous knee reconstructions. He has received grants for and conducted research on various meniscus repair techniques and strives to preserve the meniscus, whenever possible, to help prevent arthritis. Dr. Beamer also has a clinical interest in cartilage replacement and regenerative procedures often using the patient’s own tissues and cells, or those from a donor. During his training, Dr. Beamer spent six months dedicated to pediatric orthopaedics and sports medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital. For his more senior athletes, Dr. Beamer does offer knee replacement surgery.
Dr. Beamer is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA). It has always been Dr. Beamer’s goal to bring world-class training and expertise back to the Sacramento area that he calls home.
During his free time, Dr. Beamer enjoys spending time with his wife Christy, and their children. They enjoy offshore fishing, snow skiing, boating, traveling, and camping. Practicing in the Sacramento area and living in El Dorado county is well suited for this active lifestyle, and he recognizes firsthand how important it is to his patients to maintain their lifestyle and recover quickly to get back to doing what they love.
