Dr. Coufal began practicing medicine in 1998. He completed his medical school and orthopedic residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. He is a fellowship-trained orthopedic traumatologist from Henry Ford and Detroit Receiving Hospitals in Michigan.
Currently, he is a full-time orthopedic trauma surgeon at John Muir Medical Center, the regional trauma center. He recognizes the importance of all patients thoroughly understanding the cause and treatment options for their problem. In fact, he admits, “My biggest shortcoming is that I talk and spend too much time with patients.”
Orthopedics is a large area of expertise and one surgeon “cannot do it all.” Golden State Orthopedics & Spine has many surgeons that cover the gamut of care, so Dr. Coufal will refer patients to the best surgeon for them within the GSOS group, if necessary.
In the practice, Dr. Coufal is most proud of the full-time orthopedic trauma service. He is committed to the compassionate treatment of his patients. In his off time, he enjoys photography, travel, and woodworking.
