Hops to Help Arthritis
You may know Dr. Benjamin DuBois as our resident shoulder expert. He has been with our group since 2004 and is specialized in managing shoulder arthritis. He has performed over 1,500 shoulder replacements in San Diego. What you may not know is he is also an expert in the world of beer. Dr. DuBois opened up Bay City Brewing Company in 2015. He has always loved craft beer and wanted to contribute to the burgeoning scene here in San Diego. Located in Point Loma, Bay City has been serving up delicious brews to locals for years. Over 200,000 pints poured and counting! He recently opened up a second location in the heart of downtown San Diego, just a few blocks from Petco Park.

How Has He Combined His Passion For Beer and Orthopedics?
Not only has he been running a successful brewery for the last six years, but he has also made a commitment to fundraising. He has worked with many organizations over the past several years but his true passion is working with the Arthritis Foundation. He has been involved with the charitable organization for many years and even served on the local board. According to their Senior Executive Director, Teresa Dinh Watanabe, The Arthritis Foundation’s mission is “to educate, advocate, and find better treatments for a cure for arthritis and related diseases.”
