    Eric W. Tan, MD is an associate professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. He specializes in both common and complex problems of the foot and ankle, and he has a special interest in arthroscopic procedures, total ankle replacement, and reconstructive procedures.

    Dr. Tan attended medical school and completed his orthopaedic surgery training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he also served as resident physician for the Baltimore Orioles and the Johns Hopkins University athletics. He completed a foot and ankle fellowship at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland under fellowship director Lew C. Schon, MD, prior to returning to southern California.

    He is actively involved in scientific research and has authored articles and book chapters as well as presented work at various national and international meetings. Dr. Tan’s areas of interest include foot and ankle arthritis, total ankle replacements, cartilage preservation and restoration, fractures of the foot and ankle, and application of stem cells in the treatment of various foot and ankle conditions. In addition, he is actively involved with numerous national organizations including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Orthopaedic Association, and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.
