Assistant Clinical Professor - Orthopaedic Surgery - U.C. Irvine, January 1999 to Present
Team Physician - Corona del Mar high school


Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dr. Gerken 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," he commented. "I really enjoy the practice of medicine and have fun because I take the time to get to know my patients. You don`t just treat the body part, you`ve got to know what the person is about."

Dr. Gerken developed a new approach to treating calcaneous fractures. In addition to treating all orthpedic 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.

Trusted Source for Medical Tourism and Dental Tourism


Healthbase is the trusted source for global medical choices, connecting patients to leading healthcare facilities overseas. Healthbase's state-of-the-art, easy to use, information rich web-based system helps you research and arrange your medical care including necessary travel and accommodation, all at one place. We arrange first class services for patients at major internationally accredited hospitals in Singapore, Thailand, India, Mexico, Panama, Turkey, Costa Rica, Hungary and expanding to Argentina, Brazil and Malaysia. The cost of surgical care at our ever growing network of affiliated institutions is typically a fraction of the cost of care in the U.S. with equal or superior outcomes.
Healthbase's Dental Tourism provides a wide range of dental procedures through its partner dental offices and hospitals network in Mexico, Panama, Thailand, Singapore and India.
Over two hundred medical, dental and cosmetic procedures are available in various categories: Orthopedic procedures such as hip replacement, Birmingham hip resurfacing, artificial knee replacement, knee surgery, cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, face lift, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), liposuction, dental procedures such as bridges, implants, crowns, and procedures in categories such as cardiac, vascular, spinal, obesity, eye, LASIK, urology, general surgery, plastic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, weight-loss surgery, wellness and much more. The savings are up to 80% from typical USA prices.

Medical Tourism is the act of traveling abroad to receive medical, dental and cosmetic care. Medical Tourism is also called as Medical Travel, Health Tourism, Health Travel and Medical Value Travel. Significantly lower costs for best practice care is usually the primary motivation although some medical tourists go abroad for immediate availability of procedures and unavailable treatments. Patients frequently take advantage of the opportunity to vacation and tour inexpensively in the country they are visiting.
