Fremont Orthopaedics welcomed Dr. Francisco to the practice in September 2017. Dr. Francisco grew up in rural Southern Utah working on farms and enjoying all that a small town has to offer, in particular fishing, horses, and hunting. While attending Utah State University, Dr. Francisco met and married his wife, Jan, and together they moved to San Antonio, Texas for Dr. Francisco to attend medical school and residency. Dr. Francisco, his wife Jan, and their 5 children are enjoying the vibrant Fremont County community.
Dr. Francisco is a broadly trained orthopaedic surgeon who treats a spectrum of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, such as knee and hip arthritis and broken bones. He has particular interest and surgical skill in treating problems of the shoulder, elbow, and hand, such as shoulder arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Dupuytren's Disease. Among many other procedures, Dr. Francisco offers total shoulder replacement, endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery, and upper extremity trauma and reconstruction surgery.
Dr. Francisco became interested in ceramics during high school and was awarded a scholarship for his artwork at Utah State University. He had intentions of becoming a professional artist, but after a two-year mission for his church in Russia he changed his career aspirations to medicine. He continues to enjoy painting, ceramics/sculpture, and leather working. Dr. Francisco's other interests include fly-fishing, horses, and hunting; he is eager to explore the opportunities Fremont County offers for these recreational interests.
