My approach to treating patients

In my experience as a board certified orthopedic surgeon and foot and ankle specialist, I have found that a highly interpersonal atmosphere is critical to patient care. Open and honest communication is the keystone of any successful practice. I utilize this method to provide the highest quality care in a comfortable environment. In addition to the office setting, we are able to provide a vast array of diagnostic imaging in conjunction with the Worcester Medical Center. Radiological diagnostics (x-ray, MRI, CT scan, etc.) and physical therapy are all housed in the same building to provide you with an efficient assessment of your injury and convenience for resolution of your injury.

In my practice, I strive to find ways to decrease pain and increase function utilizing state of the art conservative and, when necessary, operative modalities. Every treatment plan is individualized by the needs and goals of each patient.

When necessary, I consult an excellent network of neurologists, rheumatologists, diabetologists, vascular and plastic surgeons, prosthetists, orthotists, infectious disease specialists, podiatrists, chronic pain specialists, and wound care specialists to assit in clarifying and treating difficult foot and ankle problems. This team approach provides the patient with multiple medical disciplines working toward a common goal.

I look forward to working together to provide you with an increased quality of life and will use all means to assist you in achieving your goal. Our helpful staff at the Orthopedics Institute of Central Massachusetts is available to assist you with any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us at (508) 363-6868.
