“FIVE STARS all the way around... After college and pro football I was constantly in pain. After two shoulder surgeries (one in each shoulder) it’s the first time in 10+ years living pain free and no more sleepless nights... I have had over 13 orthopaedic surgeries and wouldn’t use another doctor other than Fransisco...”
BOARD CERTIFIED ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON
Dr. Francisco joined Fremont Orthopaedics in 2017 and is a co-owner of the practice. 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 five children enjoy the Fremont County lifestyle.
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 is pleased to offer patients the option of office based surgery for carpal tunnel and trigger finger release in addition to select minor procedures.
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. While he still enjoys artistic pursuits, most of Dr. Francisco's leisure time is spent working outdoors on his family's property. Dr. Francisco's other interests include fly-fishing, horses, and hunting. He and his family thoroughly enjoy all of the recreational opportunities that are available in Fremont County.
