UC San Francisco set to open first Mission Bay clinical service 

A university campus that’s helping drive growth of the biotechnology-focused Mission Bay neighborhood will open its first clinical service on Friday.

UC San Francisco, which is building a hospital and expanding its new medically-focused campus in the booming waterfront redevelopment area, is set to open an orthopedic institute for research and patient treatment.

Surgeons and specialists at the institute will treat musculoskeletal problems and sports injuries for outpatients.

“We’re bringing all the expertise in musculoskeletal care into one setting,” said Dr. Thomas Vail, who is heading up the 120-employee facility. “We’re trying to make it less complicated for patients to access care.”

One of the unique components of the institute will be a treatment center for injured dancers that will be led by a former ballerina-turned-orthopedic surgeon.
