Dr. Andrew Pennock is a pediatric and sports medicine surgeon at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an associate clinical professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Graduating summa cum laude from Dartmouth College, where he was an All-American skier, Dr. Pennock went on to attend the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, where he graduated with honors and was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Upon completing his orthopedic residency and an orthopedic research fellowship at UC San Diego, he completed a sports medicine fellowship at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., and a pediatric orthopedic fellowship at Rady Children's.

Dr. Pennock primarily treats sports injuries in adolescents and young adults, with a special interest in knee, hip and shoulder injuries. He is also a team physician with the United States Ski Team, which he travels with on a regular basis.

Dr. Pennock continues to focus time on various research pursuits, including the developing hip as it pertains to femoroacetabular impingement and labral pathology, as well as pediatric and adolescent knee injuries.
