Bay Area Sports Orthopaedics (BASO) is a comprehensive orthopaedic practice that focuses on delivering advanced surgical care and promoting injury prevention for the elite and recreational athlete of all ages.

Founded by David S. Chang, M.D., BASO strives to provide the highest quality orthopaedic care for athletes and non-athletes alike.  We exhibit a particular expertise and interest in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery (including ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repairs, shoulder labral repairs).  In addition, our practice embraces general orthopaedic care such as fracture fixation and total joint replacement.  Dr. Chang is conservative in nature and believes strongly in educating his patients so that they are able to decide on the best course of treatment for themselves, whether it is surgical or non-surgical.

In 2010, BASO was thrilled to witness the successful return of NFL running back, Leon Washington, who underwent surgery with Dr. Chang after sustaining a devastating leg fracture in 2009.  The following season, Washington returned two kicks for touchdowns in a record breaking performance.
