Specialties

Dr. James G Gamble has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Retired Resource Specialist

I have been under the care of Dr. Gamble since 1993 following my surgery performed by Dr. Eugene Bleck in 1988. Dr. Gamble is a nationally noted expert in cerebral palsy and followed my issues all these years. He has diagnosed and helped remedy my issues and continues to monitor me through annual follow-ups.

Five Stars

Dr. Gamble was a 2nd opinion for us. After talking with him for 10mins, my husband and I knew he was the one! We had no reservations about going with Dr. Gamble for our 9yr old daughter's foot reconstruction. We traveled from Sacramento for surgery and follow up visits without hesitation.

Retired Resource Specialist

I have been under Dr, Gamble's care for some 20 years and will continue to do so. His gentle bedside manner, genuine caring and concern, and knowledge of my post cerebral palsy issues keep me well, active, and healthy. There are few experts versed in cerebral palsy as well as Dr. Gamble. I have regular follow-ups yearly with him. I'm fortunate to have him as my physician. He spends a lot of time with me and is thorough.

Dr Gamble is AMAZING!

Dr. Gamble has been treating my newborn son for bilateral club feet since a week after he was born. He has the most amazing bedside manner, explains everything clearing, gives you hope, makes my son feel safe and comfortable. Overall I couldn't ask for more right now. We have done 5 castings and have 2 left until we have his tendon surgery. I am so glad I found Dr. Gamble. I wouldn't have choose anyone else.
