Physician Bio

Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Andrew Gerken, MD grew up in Corona del Mar. It was in high school following a sports injury that he decided to pursue medicine. “I went to a physician in Los Angeles and he said he’d have me back running in a few weeks. I just trusted him and believed he’d be right. Then the idea hit me that would be the greatest thing to be able help others the way he helped me,” Dr. Gerken commented. “I really enjoy the practice of medicine and have fun because I take the time to get to know my patients.”

Dr. Gerken developed a new approach to treating calcaneous fractures. In addition to treating all orthopedic conditions, he has special expertise in ankle arthroscopy and fixing chronic ankle problems that have not responded successfully to treatment.

Dr Gerken serves as team physician for his old high school in Corona del Mar. In addition, he teaches as an assistant clinical professor in orthopedic surgery at UC Irvine, his alma mater. Dr. Gerken lives in Newport Beach with his wife and three daughters. He enjoys running, tennis and golf.
