About Us

Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialists, Inc. offers these Centers of Excellence: Sports Medicine, Fracture Care, Joint Reconstruction, Hand & Upper Extremity, Foot & Ankle Problems, Arthroscopy, Cartilage Restoration, Work Injury, Open MRI Diagnostics and Rehabilitation Services

Most patients who seek evaluation and treatment with a Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialist are experiencing musculoskeletal problems related to knee, shoulder, feet and ankle, hand and wrist, elbow, and hip. The doctors also treat a wide variety of less common problems, and treat people of all ages and activity levels. The group accepts most non-HMO and Workers’ Compensation insurance plans.

Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialists has been serving the Tri-Valley community since 1985. As our practice has grown, so has our staff. Dr. Robert H. Malstrom, our founder and his Office Assistant, Karen Ghidossi, were the first employees in the Pleasanton office. Today, we are proud to have 11 physicians, 3 medical offices, Open MRI, Closed high field MRI, Physical and Occupational Therapy Departments, our Hacienda Surgery Center, and a great group of people who have fun every day serving our patients.

Recently, Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialists moved their Pleasanton office to a new building within the Hacienda Business Park, the Orthopedic Center of Hacienda. The building is a vision, which has become a reality for the physicians who have worked extremely hard to create an orthopedic center where patients can take care of majority of their musculoskeletal and orthopedic needs in one location.

The Orthopedic Center of Hacienda houses the Pleasanton medical offices for Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialists and Hacienda Surgery Center, an ambulatory surgery center geared for "short-stay" surgical patients. If an individual experiences a musculoskeletal problem, they can see an orthopedic specialty physician for an evaluation, may have an X-ray or MRI for further studies, may see a physical or occupational therapist for post-injury or post-surgery rehabilitation and if surgery is necessary, can have the surgery done at the Hacienda Surgery Center.

Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialists is proud to offer ease in orthopedic care. We again want to thank all of those we have served for making this vision possible!
