Physician Details


Dr. Dave R. Shukla specializes in the full spectrum of conditions of the shoulder and elbow. In addition to his primary interest of shoulder arthroplasty, he also performs minimally invasive/arthroscopic surgery for rotator cuff disorders and other sports conditions. He has a strong interest in degenerative, sports-related, and traumatic disorders of the elbow as well. His orthopedic surgical training started at the Mayo Clinic where he completed a surgical internship followed by a 2-year dedicated research fellowship on traumatic elbow injuries. Following this, he completed an orthopedic surgery residency at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, and then returned to the Mayo Clinic for a one year fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery where he learned how to manage some of the most complex conditions from multiple world-renown upper extremity surgeons. He has been very active in research and has maintained an interest in advancing the field of shoulder and elbow surgery. He is committed to practicing evidence-based medicine, and is an author on over 50 articles that are published or are submitted for publication. He has had 24 presentations at national and international meetings, and serves as a consultant editorial reviewer for three journals. He has continued to contribute to Mayo Clinic’s Annual “Teach the Teachers” Advanced Elbow Surgical Skills Course since 2013.

Having been born at Hoag Hospital, Dr. Shukla attended Harbor Day School and went on to attended U.C. Berkeley for an undergraduate degree. He then went on to obtain an honors medical degree at the UCD before starting training at the Mayo Clinic. His goal was always to return to serve Orange County residents, the community in which he was raised, and where both of his parents continue to practice as physicians. In his free time, he enjoys playing tennis and golf.
