David Manske, MD
“Dr. Manske is the main reason UC Davis residents call their time at Kaiser South Sacramento as the best rotation in their entire residency.”
Many great orthopedic surgeons across the country have one thing in common: they mastered their specialty under the skilled guidance of Dr. David Manske.
“I wanted to teach ever since I was in medical school,” says Dr. Manske. “I had such great teachers and I thought, one day, I’d like to be just like those guys.”
For many years now, he’s been the kind of teacher he once dreamed of emulating — unanimously praised for his operative teaching prowess. “He gives the perfect amount of guidance, while at the same time stepping back to let us solve problems,” says a former resident.
Dr. Manske virtually owns the UC Davis clinical faculty awards, having walked off with top honors six times. “He is the main reason that UC Davis residents talk about their time at Kaiser South Sacramento as the best rotation in their entire residency,” says another former resident, now a colleague.
“I have 28 years of experience,” says Dr. Manske. “I only hope that I’m able to pass some of that experience along and maybe help someone get where I am now just a little sooner.”
