About Dr. Russell S. Petrie

Dr. Petrie is a native of Cape Town in the Republic of South Africa. His family includes three generations of physicians: his grandfather, both parents and Dr. Petrie. His family moved to the United States when he was a toddler and he grew up in Rochester, Minnesota in the shadow of the Mayo Clinic. As a child he would accompany his father during school holidays on rounds at the Mayo Clinic, and this early exposure set the tone for his adult career.

Dr. Petrie double majored in Biology and Economics from UC Berkeley and attended Mayo Medical School and did his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic. He completed his Fellowship in Orthopedic Sports Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, where he took care of the University Pittsburgh Sports Teams and had exposure to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“What is gratifying is to return someone to their life’s passion by fixing what is wrong. That to me is why I’m here.”

As for his specialty in sports-related knee and shoulder injuries, he says, “I liked sports and ended up in doctors’ offices because of them.” Currently, Dr. Petrie is one of the medical team physicians for the LA Chargers. He also works with Vanguard University sports teams.

In his free time, Dr. Petrie enjoys cycling, scuba diving and surfing. He currently resides in Irvine with his wife and children.
