My approach to treating patients
I've been practicing orthopaedic surgery in Rochester, NY, since 1995. Common problems I treat include:
- shoulder tendonitis and rotator cuff tears
- tennis elbow
- carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger fingers
- knee pain and arthritis
- bunions and other foot problems.
I specialize in treating patients with osteoarthritis, and optimize the benefits of treatments that are less invasive than joint replacement surgery. (I don't do joint replacements as part of my practice.) We'll talk about what's best for you, now and for the future, including exercises, medications, injections, braces, and surgery.
I want you to take an active role in your care; I take time to educate you about your condition and to focus the treatment on your health and lifestyle. My goals are to relieve your pain, and restore function and quality of life.
I've written Know Your Bones: Making Sense of Arthritis Medicine. to help my patients understand the WHAT and WHY of joint pain, so you'll realize HOW different medicines work, WHEN to take them, and WHICH is right for you. Printed in Rochester, the book is available through my office or online at KnowYourBones
