About Dr Schilling

Whether it’s an injured high school athlete, a weekend warrior with tennis elbow, or an elderly patient with arthritis, Dr. Schilling’s focus is on helping patients achieve their functional goals.

His philosophy of care revolves around helping each patient regain function in a safe, timely manner. In most cases, a non-operative course of treatment will suffice. However, an operative approach may lead to a quicker and better resolution of the problem. After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Schilling will work with you to make the appropriate decision for your specific situation.

Direct involvement of both the patient and involved family members in deciding the course of treatment is of paramount importance. He welcomes all patient questions, concerns, and expectations for recovery.

Dr. Schilling is dedicated and focused to his practice and continued education. He has completed research on topics including clavicle fixation methods and prolotherapy treatment for tendinopathy.

Dr. Schilling was born and raised in Walnut Creek and is delighted to be back in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Have seen Dr. Schilling several times for my arthritic thumb. He is very accurate in delivering just the right amount of cortisone at the right joint. It takes 3 to 4 weeks to take affect. Meanwhile he gives me a wrist brace and advices me to use small amounts of Voltaren - a gel for arthritis pain. Dr. Schilling keeps me functional. I’m very thankful to be his patient.

Dr. Shilling is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything he is doing and what he expects for you.
- Herb M

He is thoroughly professional while at the same time having the bedside manner of small-town doctors from generations ago. Being the son of one of those old-time doctors, I can think of no higher compliment.
