My approach to treating patients

Navigating the health care system can be difficult. The Ogden clinic is a multispecialty clinic where most all health care needs may be addressed.

I take great responsibility in my work. I have been a practicing orthopedic surgeon in Ogden for the past 15 years, and many of my patients have become friends and colleagues. Patient education is an important part of my practice. It is necessary for patients to understand their diagnosis and treatment options so that they may make informed decisions.

I treat a wide variety of orthopedic conditions including knee replacement, hip replacement, knee ligament reconstruction shoulder stabilization and rotator cuff repair. Fracture care is an important part of my practice.

Physicians must provide quality healthcare based on sound scientific evidence. Medical innovation is occuring at a rapid rate, but the latest technical advance may not always produce the best outcome. The most recent examples include metal on metal hip replacement, minimally invasive joint replacement and computer navigation. Treatment decisions should be based on sound scientific evidence.

I also believe surgical intervention is merely one tool in an orthopedic surgeon's toolbox. The key to successful treatment is to have an accurate diagnosis and pick the right tool at the right time. Appropriate treatment may include physical therapy, injections, pharmacologic management, education and/or surgery.

Together we will make the best treatment decision for your particular diagnosis. We will treat it appropriately based on sound scientific evidence. We will minimize risk and provide you the best quality of life possible. As a physician responsible for musculoskeletal health, I hope to return you to the active lifestyle you desire.
