Jacob Carl, M.D., grew up in Northern California as one of five boys in the family. He studied human biology at the University of California San Diego. After earning his medical degree at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York, Dr. Carl completed his orthopedic residency training at UC Davis Medical Center. During that time, he was able to do clinical rotations at Shriners Children's Northern California, where his interest in pediatric orthopedic surgery grew. Following his residency, he completed his pediatric orthopedic fellowship at Cincinnati Children's Hospital where, in addition to general pediatric training, he focused on the subspecialty of pediatric sports medicine with several experts in the field.

As a former athlete, Dr. Carl knows the importance that sports participation plays in a child's life. He has had his own experience with season-ending injuries and knows the struggle our patients go through with surgery and recovery. His goal is to provide specialized clinical care to our young athletes and get them back to their pre-injury level.

Growing up in Northern California, Dr. Carl and his family were all very active in sports and outdoor recreational activities including basketball, snowboarding, wakeboarding and paddle boarding. He continues to participate in these activities any chance he can, and hopes to keep children healthy and active no matter what activity they love to do.
