    Physician Bio

    A native of California, Dr. Shaunak Desai grew up in San Jose, California. He began his education at the University of California, Riverside earning his B.S. in Biology with a minor in Neuroscience. He graduated Magna cum Laude with honors and went on to attend Northwestern University School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. After medical school, Dr. Desai completed his Orthopedic Surgery Residency at the Henry Ford Health System, a very busy Level 1 Trauma Center in Detroit, Michigan.

    “During his residency he served as the Administrative Chief Resident and was nominated for Outstanding Resident of the Year.”

    Dr. Desai returned to California to complete his Hand and Upper Limb Fellowship at Stanford University where he studied under world-renowned plastic and orthopedic trained hand surgeons. During residency, Dr. Desai was a part of Stanford’s investigational center for the treatment of Dupuytren’s disease. He spent significant time studying and treating the disease along with other peripheral nerve injuries. Dr. Desai brings with him to Orange County a brand new non-surgical Collagenase treatment for Dupuytren’s disease.

    In his spare time, Dr. Desai enjoys being active, going to the gym, running, softball, and soccer. He is a former F.I.F.A. certified soccer referee. He currently resides in Newport Beach with his wife and young daughter and is looking forward to learning how to surf.
