Alberto J. Panero, D.O.

Regenerative Orthopedics Specialist & Sports Medicine Specialist located in Sacramento, CA

When you suffer a musculoskeletal injury, your body makes every effort to heal itself. This natural healing process is augmented at The BIOS Orthopedic Institute, located in Sacramento, California. Dr. Alberto J. Panero offers biomechanical and interventional approaches to promote long-term healing. The practice treats your symptoms, as well as delving into the root cause of the problem.

What types of injuries can Dr. Panero treat?

When you experience an injury to soft tissue, such as muscle, ligaments or cartilage, your body has its own repair system. But, this system can be compromised due to aging, blood flow restriction, or other issues. Your body then finds itself unable to heal, or the natural healing process is very slow. As a result, you experience persistent pain, swelling, weakness, or dysfunction in certain joints.

Dr. Panero treats most musculoskeletal injuries. Some of his specialties include:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Disc herniations
  • S.I. joint pain
  • Facet arthropathy
  • Sciatica/nerve impingement
  • Neuropathy
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

He’s also well-equipped for musculotendinous issues, including:

  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis and tendon tears
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • de Quervain’s wrist
  • Achilles and patellar
  • Rotator cuff
  • Muscular tears
  • Hamstring
  • Quadricep
  • Biceps
  • Shoulder instability
  • Ulnar collateral ligament
  • Scapholunate ligament
  • ATFL (ankle tears)

Also see him for bone and cartilage issues like:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteochondral defects
  • Acute fracture management
  • Stress fracture
  • Meniscal tears
  • Shoulder and hip labral tears

Dr. Panero is extremely professional and takes the time to explain in detail his diagnosis and opinion. He is also willing to listen to your concerns and needs.(Some orthopedic doctors I’ve meet with have not been as open minded.) I really like his approach to rehab and regeneration. It is refreshing to not have a Dr. want to immediately operate or medicate you. Nice courteous staff, reasonable wait time and the office is very accessible with a parking garage. Parking fee, I paid $1 for 30 mins, cash only.

Very personable and knowledgeable presenting options for the problem and then going forward from the choice made. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family! Office staff is fabulous as well.

I just had my first visit with Dr. Panero and found him to be knowledgeable and personable. I appreciate the fact that he was straightforward with my options for treatment, which are limited due to the nature of my orthopedic problem. I will continue with his recommended injections.

Finally after 3 months of being brushed off, I found a Doctor who cared to take an extra minute to treat me as an individual and listen. I saw several doctors without a diagnosis and I now have that and a plan of care. Truly grateful for Dr . Panero!!! Very Thorough.
