    Biography
    “Everyone can be an athlete.” This is the mantra of Eugene Yim, MD, a sports medicine physician with Hoag. Dr. Yim grew up in Texas where he was exposed to sports through his father, a renowned world-champion martial artist. As a result of watching athletes over the years, Dr. Yim decided to make it his personal goal to help his patients be active and achieve their goals.

    Dr. Yim specializes in the non-operative management of sports and orthopedic injuries. While his area of expertise is vast, some of the areas he treats includes foot and ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, sports injuries, elbow, and non-operative traumas and fractures. He focuses his patient care on step-by-step, evidence-based treatment to yield the best outcome. Additionally, he works with his patients to help them find the right activity level that allows them to improve their health and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    He was an undergraduate student at Yale University, attended Stanford Medical School for medical school, and completed his residency training in Emergency Medicine at the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Following residency, Dr. Yim chose to complete a fellowship in sports medicine at Stanford. As a staff member at the Stanford Sports Medicine Clinic, Dr. Yim helped care for all of the NCAA Division I athletes at Stanford. He served as a medical team physician for the San Francisco 49ers as well as a team physician for Stanford Football and Women’s Soccer. Currently, he is head medical team physician for the LA Chargers and is also a team physician for the US Men's and Women's National Volleyball Teams.

    During his time away from the office, Dr. Yim enjoys spending time with his wife and sons as well as staying active by running, cycling, and playing sports.
