Ronald Wyatt, MD

Orthopedic Surgery, Diablo Service Area

“Dr. Wyatt excels at seeing opportunity and translating it into reality.”

If there’s anything he can do to improve operations, Ronald Wyatt, MD, will do it.

He excels at assembling the right team for the task, and makes everyone feel “part of the process and part of the success.”

He spearheaded a program to perform 3 or 4 total joint replacement surgeries a day. Some said it couldn’t be done, but Dr. Wyatt assembled the team and led the way

Now he’s orchestrating efficiencies in outpatient surgery. He got everyone on board to reduce patient hospital stays after total joint surgery, and created a new regional musculoskeletal program to provide better outpatient care for patients with acute musculoskeletal injuries.

A dedicated volunteer, he’s been on numerous missions for Orthopedics Overseas to teach physicians in remote locations how to improve care for patients. He also helped build a DSA volunteer team for Operation Access, a program supported by KP, which provides free surgical services for uninsured patients.
