Bio

Dr. Eric Edmonds is the director of orthopedic research and co-director of 360 Sports Medicine at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego. He is one of two fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeons with subspecialty certification in sports medicine in San Diego, Imperial, Riverside and Orange counties.

He is also a professor of clinical orthopedic surgery at UC San Diego, where he is actively involved with the education of pediatric orthopedic fellows, residents from UC San Diego, the Navy and the Air Force, and UC San Diego medical students.

After graduating from Carlsbad High School, he attended The Johns Hopkins University and earned his medical degree at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. Subsequently, he completed a general surgery internship at the UC Davis Medical Center, followed by an orthopedic residency at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C. His training brought him back to Southern California, where he completed the pediatric orthopedic and scoliosis fellowship at Rady Children's, followed by a sabbatical in sports medicine at Boston Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Southern California Kaiser Permanente, San Diego.

Dr. Edmonds' clinical interests include youth sports medicine and musculoskeletal trauma. His current research involves adolescent shoulder and knee injuries, as well as ankle injuries and fracture treatment. He actively participates in many multi-center research teams, including the Research of Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee. He has received multiple research awards, including the Provost Undergraduate Award for Research and Excellence from The Johns Hopkins University and the distinguished St Giles Young Investigator Award from the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America.
