He completed his Orthopedic Residency at the University of California San Francisco and followed this with sub-specialty fellowships in Orthopedic Trauma at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA, and Joint Replacement at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. His clinical interests include orthopedic trauma (polytrauma care, pelvis and acetabular fractures, long bone fractures, periarticular fractures), lower extremity joint replacement (total hip and total knee arthroplasty and their revisions), and the intersection of these two subspecialties (periprosthetic fracture). Dr. Toogood dedicates most of his clinical time to Zuckerberg San Francisco General, however also spends time at San Jose Regional Medical Center. Dr. Toogood is an Assistant Professor In-Residence through the University of California San Francisco, and is actively engaged in biomechanical and clinical research through this institution and the OTI at ZFGH. He has previous publications in multiple peer-reviewed journals focusing on topics from human hip anatomy, to clavicle biomechanics, to the epidemiology of periprosthetic fractures. Additionally, having been a resident himself at this program, he is especially interested in the next generation of Orthopedic Surgeon, the residents and fellows, trained at UCSF.
