Biography

A native of New York City, Dr. Beyer wanted to be a doctor for as long as he could remember. He grew up watching Dr. Kildare and Ben Casey, and his grandfather was an orthodontist. As a self-proclaimed sports nut, he says, “I love sports. Practicing sports medicine has enabled me to take what I love recreationally and incorporate it into my vocation.” Dr. Beyer is the team physician for University High School, located in Irvine, CA for the last 25 years.

Dr. Beyer is currently involved in cartilage restoration procedures, total and partial knee replacement surgery and early intervention, and minimally invasive surgery for osteoarthritis of the knee. He also sits on the Board of Directors of Greater Newport Physicians, has served as President of Hoag Hospital’s 552 Club, and is a Board Member of the Arthritis Foundation of Orange County and the Inland Empire. Dr. Beyer currently serves as the Executive Medical Director of Hoag Orthopedic Institute.

Dr. Beyer is also the host of a one hour show called Doctor in the Dugout, featured on Angels Radio AM 830 KLAA on Saturdays. The weekly radio show provides both an entertaining and an informative look at sports injuries, sports medicine-related topics and features special guests.
