About William T. Kent, MD

William Kent, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in treating fractures related to trauma, sports injuries and fractures around total joint replacements. His clinical practice includes treating fractures of the acetabulum, hip, pelvis, clavicle, humerus, elbow, forearm, femur, tibia, ankle and foot.

In addition to acute fracture management, Dr. Kent sees individuals who have experienced complications associated with fracture healing, including nonunions and malunions. He also treats periprosthetic fractures, those occurring around the components of total hip or knee replacements.

His research interests are focused on fracture healing and the biomechanics of fracture fixation. He incorporates his research to employ advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive approaches to enable rapid recovery and return to full functionality.

Dr. Kent completed an orthopaedic trauma surgery fellowship at UC San Diego School of Medicine and an additional AO Trauma traveling fellowship at Korea University Guro Hospital in Seoul, South Korea. He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at UC Davis Medical Center and earned his medical degree from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.
